I have a feeling Dana will be removing someone from the UFC HOF for the first time


1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

If the UFC is upset about this I wonder if they will let him know by how they treat Ryan.

Can't blame him, dude has a lot of divorces to pay for, I'm sure he hasn't kept much of his fight earnings

I doubt it's that. I seriously doubt he is struggling financially and he could have an office job with Zuffa if he wanted one. He has his own brand that he built. He has clothing line, gym, movies, signings, I doubt he is strapped for cash. He just sees a good chance with Bellator. His name should help their brand and they are on the rise right now.

Dana has to be a little pissed, Ryan was borderline at best for making the cut and I would imagine being Randy's kid gave him the edge.

Too late to cut and paste him to the "Hall of Infamy".
