One of two things need to happen. Either it turns into the MMA HoF or they literally become the one and only org at that level. Otherwise it will never mean much. Not to mention past fighters that will likely never get in.

A link to my previous Dan Henderson thread. It was an argument for him possibly being the GOAT.

Top 3 though.

This is why the UFC HOF is a joke.

Hendo is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time and is a legend, but if you look at his UFC career, he is nowhere close to being in the HOF. Neither does big Nog. If they put them in the UFC HOF, then the HOF is a joke cause they don't deserve that HOF, they deserve to be in the "MMA HOF", which is NOT the UFC HOF, cause Fedor, Sakuraba and others won't ever be in it.

UFC HOF is the worst, most laughable HOF out there.

LOL yeah Frank is THE prime example when talking about deserving guys that will never be in. It's the first fighter that popped into my mind and AF said the same as well. Dana has no logical explanation for why Frank isn't in.

He doesn't like Frank, and in Dana's mind that's all it takes.

Dana has been great for the sport overall but a lot of his decisions are retarded. I mean full retard, Simple Jack type of retarded.

well now that Pride is gone the UFC will become the only top notch MMA org so once the pride fighters that are currently in the ufc cycle out in the next few years it should work itself out because the only legit candidates will have been successful in the ufc. the merger between pride and the ufc is what screwed things up but no the ufc is pretty much the only legit org and in a few years things shoud work itself out. but for the time being we are stuck with the current problem.

There is still the issue with past legends that will never make it in. Bellator is still going to grab top talent as well.
