I don't understand why Wanderlei Silva would be in the UFC Hall of Fame. Can someone enlighten me, please? His Octagon record sure doesn't warrant it.

Doesn't say anything about ufc hall of fame in the title. Just ufc fighters going to the hall of fame. Wandy is in the ufc and he definitely deserves to be in some sort of mma hall of fame. That's my reasoning for it, don't know about everyone else.

I don't think Faber has earned his spot in there on the grounds of value and accomplishments in the UFC. yes he was an amazing WEC fighter, but unless we accept the UFC hall of fame as honoring those who do well in MMA then this is pointless. This can be answered with one simple question.. Does Fedor belong in Hall of Fame?

My answer Not in the UFC Hall of Fame, But certainly he deserves to be honored as one of the best of all time

All of Wanderlei's wins have been in the sport of UFC though, just most were in their minor league organization called MMA.

I cast my votes for soon to be HOF'rs with a couple of twists:

GSP
Tito
Hughes
BJ
Anderson Silva
Miletich
Bas Rutten
Evan Tanner
Franklin
Lyoto


I know he's not a fighter but doesn't big John McCarthy deserve a HOF spot? and what about Leon Tabbs!

"Leon Tabbs, The first ever cutman in the UFC. Leon has been in the UFC longer than any person involved with the organization. He is the only person currently working in the UFC that was working at UFC 1. Leon is closing in on 80 and is still going strong working every UFC and Jet Setting all over the world. That is a feat in itself to handle the travel that goes along with being a cutman. "

Absolutely he does. He's had a solid impact on the sport imo.

Stich Duran has to be in the HOF, too. He is easily the greatest cut man in the history of combat sports and has done as much if not more to make the UFC great by making it so that fights can continue after damage.

How many times have we seen a fighter finish a round looking like a victim of an axe attack? Then you see Stitch meet him before he even gets to his corner and in 2 minutes has everything under control. Definitely a HOFer.

A fighter that should be in the mix is Frank Shamrock. In his day he was dominant, and he kind of set the mold of what a MMA fighter should be with well-rounded (for his time anyway) skills and excellent conditioning.

I am right there with a lot of you, With GSP,A.Silva. Page....etc. But one name that hasn't come up is Jens Pulver. He has fallen off as of late but he was the FIRST LW CHAMP in the UFC!! He paved the way for Aldo/Edgar/Cruz! I think Jens deserves a spot in MMA royalty for sure!!

Rampage
Rashad
Lyoto Machida

Ultimately, the amount of fights in the octagon and the ability to sell ppv's are the #1 thing that will determine which fighters make it into the hall of fame.
