You forgot Fedor.



I did not forget Fedor. The sole reason i left his name out of this particualr conversation is because he never fought under the UFC banner, all these other fighters did.

Cro Cop
Wanderlei
Rampage
Nog
Hendo(2 unification title fights)
Shogun

Does anyone realistically think these very deserving fighters will make a "UFC HOF."




With the exception of Cro Cop I think they will all be in the UFC HOF not based on Cage record but still largely based on name.

That definitely wasn't guard.

Completely agree with Uncle Dana on this one.

There is one issue I have. Call me a bitter Pride fanboy if you will....it's ok, after you do that you can kiss the dark part of my ass.

Anyways what happens to all the legends of the Pride glory days that deserve to be in a HOF but since the UFC doesn't give them their credit for their Pride fights they won't make it.

Cro Cop
Wanderlei
Rampage
Nog
Hendo(2 unification title fights)
Shogun

I guess this is a situation that calls for a straight up MMA HOF but with one org ruling them all, I don't think these men wil lget the credit they deserve.





There shouldn't be a "UFC" hall of fame, it should be the MMA Hall of Fame.

Its not like the other major sports have HOF's for specific leagues, they encompass the whole sport, including the female leagues as well.

The UFC brands everything though and probably wouldn't allow any of their fighters to be inducted to an "MMA HOF" that was independently run.

He popped Tito in the ear from guard and took out his equilibrium before the follow up.
