Also neither of those guys (Couture and Sylvia) were able to be the number #1 Heavyweight in the world. Brock Lesnar rose to #1 in 7 fights. His record maybe mediocre but his rise was meteoric and will never happen again in the mens division.
Besides the whole issue is irrelevant Dana has made it perfectly clear he does not care about the UFC Hall of Fame to reflect anything other than how it affected the Zuffa era UFC. This means Lesnar, Griffin, Bonnar, Koscheck, Florian, Sonnen, and Stann are all going in the Hall at some point. Frank Shamrock and Don Frye...those guys don't matter, I don't like it, you don't like it but we have to accept it.
Dana and Hall is like Honey Boo Boo, if you don't give him that dollar he won't holla.
