Now if he could have brought in those fans a few years earlier when the UFC wasn't doing so great (early 2000's) or if he had broke the title defense record then maybe it would make sense.
the current list.

mat hughes
royce gracie
ken shamrock - 6 wins out of 12
dan severn - 9 wins 12
mask -
chuck liddell
mark coleman - 7 wins out of 12
randy couture - mma record 19 wins out of 30

brock would beat all of these guys up and has a better octagon record than a few of them too. p4p he would destroy most of this list. in terms of accomplishment he beat better competition and won as much or more than a lot of these guys.

you will retort...but ken shamrock 6 wins 6 losses was important to the company. well so was tito which is part of the reason he is there despite his record. and so was brock.

he is part of the story of ufc. in the historical context he belongs on that list. if it was a strict p4p list then you might have a point. but if that were so it would have bjpenn on it and not mask. rip. just sayin...

No way. May as well throw Kimbo Slice in there - he brought over a crapload of fans too.

For the era he was in, Brock really doesn't deserve it. I rank him as more of a brief freakshow more than anything. (and I was a big fan at first, too) Whether or not he could beat up old guys from a completely different era is 100% irrelevant. As is PPV buys. He was just a WWE circus sideshow that Donkey Konged his way in and then blew right back out of town as soon as he realized he can't handle getting hit. Not someone I want in the HOF.

I'm exaggerating a bit there to illustrate some points, keep in mind. Thing is, I hold the same basic view as HitOrGetHit posted earlier:

I also have a different view on HOF than others. I think it should really be reserved for the truly great.

I would just add that it also largely depends on the era they were in/shaped at the time. Brock was basically a flash in the pan, at best. DNQ.

If the UFC was had a dance moves hall of fame then I would say yes.

Ummmmmm the guys in the HoF now not named Hughes and Liddell are historical figures, they are there because they built the sport. That would be like saying that the New Orleans Saints today would beat the 85 bears or the 72 Dolphins and then using that argument to say that that Saints team is HoF worthy....do you see the problem with that?
