UFC Hall of Crap???
 
Can anyone explain why Cotoure was inducted into the UFC hall of fame 4 months after his retirement while Royce Gracie wasn't inducted untill like 7 years after his last UFC fight in 1996 ( I think ).

P.S. I don't think the hall of fame is crap, just think Royce should've been the FIRST one inducted

Shamrock's already in it, guess maybe they wanted to give it to Randy as a mark of respect for his career and also his input into TUF.

Not saying Gracie is not deserving, just trying to figure out their thinking.

I cant wait for coleman and frye to get in there. I didnt agree with randy getting in before them.

I say put in Tank Abbott. He is the best street fighter ever to enter the UFC and his knockouts will always be remembered since they were so horrific. I'm not being sarcastic, put him in the hall of fame. No one knocked out opponents like him. Matt Hughes is a future hall of famer as well.

I loved Tank, that would be cool.

I believe they are already in there. The UFC hall of fame was put into place after Zuffa bought the UFC from SEG. SEG wasn't even entertaining the idea (heck, they were the ones in charge when UFC went dark and was banned from PPV in the US for around 16 months).

Royce was the first inductee. Shamrock was the second. From what I remember I believe they've already inducted 6 or 7 people into the HoF, but for some reason they aren't all listed on the UFC website.

First Gracie and Shamrock were inducted then Severn. And now Cotoure is in. They are the only ones in the Hall of Fame. I think Coleman, Fry, and Abbott should be inducted.

Dan Severn was inducted also, before Couture.

cro.cop123 07-12-2006 09:21 PM

Severn should be there, I think that they should have had the tourney winners in there(minus steve junnem(sp)) and tank before randy. Just my 2 cents.
