If he loses to Jones there will be a world where he is in the HOF yet Frank Shamrock and Pat Miletich - sadly. If he wins, im fine with that.

The UFC Hall of Fame is pretty useless right now. Hopefully one day they can turn it into a real respectful thing that includes everyone. Right now though, it's a bigger joke than the WWE HOF and that has Pete Rose in it.

When they induct Sakuraba, Fedor, Cro-Cop, Gomi, Bas Rutten, Frank Shamrock, I'll be more than happy to support it.

If we are simply talking about "UFC" HOF (which we are, I realize), then Dan does not on any level deserve it, he had 2 title fights (he won the titles outside of the UFC, not in it), lost them both, got a few wins over Shogun and Franklin, and that's been it. Which makes the HOF even more ridiculous.

No *Facepalm*

Thats not what i said at all.

Us Fans should support Dan Henderson being put in the HOF.

He has done alot for us fans and is still doing it. I realize its the "UFC" hall of fame but i also realize thats the only one around. Im not a huge fan of Dan but i can appreciate everything he has done. Im willing to support him being inducted in the UFC hof based on EVERYTHING he has done because the UFC hof is the only one there is. He has earned that much support atleast.

And since the UFC HOF is a joke somewhat i see no problem supporting this cause. Extending the UFC HOF to achievements done in "MMA" is fine by me.

And yea i would love for them to induct CroCop also. CroCop has done enough for me that im more then happy to support that too.

Shouldn't his PRIDE run count since Zuffa owns it?

Either way, he's obviously a HOF caliber fighter, the thing with MMA is, it's a real young sport and you could make the argument that next year a guy like Jon Jones is a HOF'er, not that Jones sucks or anything like that but he'd only be 26 years old....

He won UFC 17, he won the PRIDE GP, he won the PRIDE WW AND MW titles

he won the RINGS title...

How could he NOT be in the HOF?

He also KO'd Fedor and Wanderlei Silva... and beat Shogun...

I mean, what more does he have to do?

They aren't extending the UFC HOF to achievements done in MMA, that's the problem. If it was, Fedor/Sakuraba would have been in it a long time ago.

I don't doubt Dan's accomplishments, I'd easily slap him in an official MMA HOF, he's a legend. However, I don't support a silly HOF like the UFC one (of which Dan doesn't deserve if it's only UFC, he's done nothing of worth in the UFC to be put in this HOF), and as such, I don't really care if Dan gets in it or not, it's all a joke to me.

I'd definitely be happy for him if he was being put into something useful or meaningful, but he's not.

I know they are not.

That doesnt change the fact that i support Dan Henderson being inducted DUE to everything he has done.

Whether Dana White is doing it for that reason or not is not my problem.

As you said the UFC HOF is a joke. So why shouldnt we want Dan Henderson to be inducted due to his whole MMA career. It doesnt make much sense to expect guys like Dan to achieve everything twice. Once outside the UFC and once inside the UFC.


Basically what im trying to say is

The UFC HOF is a joke. And im sure Dan Henderson would want to be inducted. So why the hell should we not want Dan to be inducted if that is something he would like??? The UFC HOF isnt becoming any less of a joke any time soon.

The whole idea of a hall of fame is beyond idiotic when there actually is no Hall.


You know....Cooperstown and the NBA and NFL equivalents are ACTUAL HALLS OF FAME with jerseys, memorabilia, pictures, stats, etc.

Not abstract concepts with no sort of state of being actually official other than the arbitrary opinions of Dana White and the Fertitas.


There is no hall, there are no voters, there is no board, there is no process...therefore it's shit and means nothing.

I never said I didn't "want" him to be inducted, I just "don't care" if he is or not. It is meaningless as it's a meaningless HOF.

But you did respond to my post with "Support a HOF that is meaningless, NO!, etc etc." And you did say that he doesnt belong in the UFC HOF with his current UFC achievements.

I was just responding to your confusion. Because you clearly didnt understand what i was getting at.

Just like i never said you "dont" want him to be inducted. I get the feeling you just like creating meaningless arguments. No offense intended...
