HOF is special and should be for the very few who to above and beyond. People who helped shape the sport. Not every champion or fighters with good records. It would be overrun with names.
Completely agree. At this rate the UFC HoF will have too many names and lose prestige. It has to be reserved for the *very* best. For me, defending a belt multiple times or winning belts at different weights should be the very minimum required. Without that, a fighter should never be considered.

In my eyes, the only valid names so far are Chuck, Tito, Hughes, GSP, Anderson, Couture and BJ. Outside of that lot, Bones looks like he's going to cement a place by the time hes done.

Absolutely agree. It has to be reserved for the absolute best of the best that shaped this sport and the company into something special. Otherwise, it'll be 'oh yeah you're in the UFC HoF? Cool whatever, so is Big Timmy'.

Hendo should be nowhere near the UFC HoF... MMA HoF for sure, not UFC HoF though...

Some of the current fighters that would end up in there if they were to retire right now are:
- Franklin
- Forrest
- Bonnar
- Rashad
- GSP
- Anderson

There are probably a few more - But I'm all for keeping it as a very exclusive privilige.

I agree with the people above me - Either multiple belts or an evolutionary or historicaly important role in the company's history should be required

Some of the current fighters that would end up in there if they were to retire right now are:
- Franklin (this is just sentimental bliss, he faltered when
real competition arrived.And only beat a washed up wandi)

- Forrest (another sentimental choice but I get it)

- Bonnar (sentimental bs, forrest is enough)

- Rashad (Biggest TUF success story, stellar record, made the company a lot of money so I dont see why not)
- GSP
- Anderson
Anderson goes without saying

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering
