Hendo and the hall of fame

Hendo has had a pretty impressive career strike force champ never been koed or tkoed knocked out Fedor had one of the greatest matches against shogun and came out on top, and owner of one of the greatest KOs ever when he koed Bisping, champion of 2 divisions in pride at once however the UFC title has eluded him. He has had an impressive MMA career but his biggest achievements have been outside the UFC. if there was some sort of MMA hall no dout he should bee there but do you think those achievements warrant a UFC HOF spot despite no title and do you think he should be in if he is able to capture the title in his remaining few fights?


P.S. he did kind get screwed over being promised a remach with silva for the title if he defeated bisping and the UFC having sonnon get the shot.

Well he does have the old school UFC MW Tournament Championship. He did lose the 2 title unification bouts but those are his only losses in the UFC. I think there is no doubt that Dan should be and will be in the UFC HOF.

He has had a HOF career. The problem is a lot of it was done outside of the UFC. I still think he gets in, but I also think there should be an MMA HOF. Not just UFC.

I'm pretty sure Dana mentioned that non UFC fights can still be a factor in HOF. He also mentioned that he thought Tank Abbott was a HOFer. So if Tank Abbott is a HOFer, then Dan the Man is too. Again he has 1 tournament Championship to hang his hat on as well. If it wasn't for his damn knee injury he would have had his 3rd title fight by now. Only losses in the UFC are in title fights. He also has one of the most memorable KOs in UFC history at one of the most watched events in UFC history. He has some UFC accomplishments to go with his major non UFC accomplishments.

It just looks stupid to have a UFC HoF with fighters outside the org in it. It isn't. It's like if Arena Football players made the NFL HoF.

I think that's an awful comparison. Because most of the guys we are talking about were beating guys as good or better then the guys in the UFC at the time. Arena Guys aren't even close to NFL talent. Not a fair comparison at all.

You are missing the point. It wasn't about talent. It's about having people in a HoF that weren't even with the company. It isn't UFC Fighting. It's MMA fighting. Are they going to put Fedor in? He was never in the UFC but he is surely a hall of famer. I would bet almost anything he doesn't make it.

This HoF has no credibility whatsoever when 1 company in the entire sport is choosing who gets in when equal level fighters aren't with them.

Are they going to put a Bellator fighter in if he never comes to the UFC? Doubtful.
