he never defended the unified title he has two defenses of the non-unified hw title, he made a joke of the division and during his reign he never beat a number one or two ranked. id rather see Sylvia or Mir in the ufc hof before lesnar gets considered.

So if he's in, then I think a guy who won the belt in his division, was the number one fighter in the world in his division, and actually defended the belt should be in.
Put everyone in who has ever fought in then...

It would be very insulting to other HoF members in my opinion. Brock was a flash in the pan.

So I guess based on that criteria every champion who wins a belt and defends it once should be in the HoF. Makes sense.

Mask should never have been inducted, and neither should Brock. Two wrongs don't make a right!

Yes....
  • Became the number 1 ranked HW in the world. This is more then just being a champion how many other guys that hit #1 should be kept out of the Hall.
  • Won the UFC HW title and defended it twice. Hey you know who couldn't defend their UFC HW...Frank Mir and Big Nog.
  • Lost only to champions. Lost to Frank Mir in his second fight, lost to Cain and Overeem after having part of his bowels removed.
  • Brought in hundreds of millions of dollars into the sport, thousands of fans, gave it a form of economic stability during a recession.

How did he make a joke of it? Because he just happened to be employed by the WWE at some point? Did Ken Shamrock make a joke of the UFC too? No, get that shit out of here, Lesnar is just as much of an MMA fighter as Fedor was. One job he had in the past doesn't make his accomplishments in MMA meaningless.

The point is the UFC HOF is a joke, there's no actual HOF, there's no Cooperstown, there's no big induction ceremony, it's not like the NFL or the NBA, it's just a marketing ploy basically and if a guy who made t-shirts can get in it then well.....not many people shouldn't get in there.

Definitely. The Hall of Fame isn't exactly as prestigious as everyone is making it out to be. I mean, Charles Lewis is even in it. If he can be in it, I don't see why Brock can't be.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

The UFC HOF? Who cares, it's the single most useless HOF for any major sport alive.

In an official MMA HOF? Not a chance in hell.

Why should this be a joke. A lot of major MMA news sites are debating about it, why shouldn't we.

Lesnars HOF saga definitely is something else. One could easily make an argument on how he was just a one time thing with a mediocre record. On the other hand, only 2 guys have been as succesful title holders as he has.
