- SOTN award at UFC 116
- Niggest PPV draw in the history of the UFC
While his record doesn't look so impressive at 4-3, i still think he should get there one day. On paper, he is still one of the most succesful HW champions of all time with 2 defenses.
I don't think so. I don't know if you've seen, but I support himn in nearly ever thread he's been mentioned. Although his actual skillset has many holes, there is no taking away the incredible level of competition he faced and for the most part, defeated. That being said, I don't think he really matched up to be a HOFer. I think someone in the HOF has to be fully accepted by everything, and Lesnar's nowhere close to that. Everyone would kick up fuss and quote that he was given a title shot and only drew because of his "fake fighting" background, and really it would do more damage than good to the HOF. He also didnt have anywhere near enough fights to me.
