Tank does not deserve to be in the hof. For one he had a bad record and second of all he did have good ko's but look what happened when he went up against the better fighters of today. If I had to pick anyone on this list it would be Bas Rutten.

Frank Shamrock should be inducted to the HOF, but it's never going to happen as long as dana white is the president because they're not on good terms. he was the most dominant and first middleweight champion of all-time. he was the 5x champion and he beat some really tough guys, including Tito Ortiz.

Tank Abbott was the most entertaining ever in the UFC. He knocked out people worse than anyone could today. And hes the best street fighter to ever enter the UFC. So live with it. Tank is a legend.
He wasn't the best street fighter. there are many other better street fighters, for example Bas Rutten and Ken Shamrock. At least Couture and Shamrock don't have losing records and were champions and defended their title at least twice. Just because a fighter is entertaining doesnt make them a hall of famer. tank was not a talented mixed martial artist, and was a terrible image for MMA. to be in the HOF, you should at least have been a multiple champion, and had done something significant for the sport.

Does the UFC have guidelines for getting into the Hall of Fame? Such as holding the title at least once. I don't think Tank should be in the Hall of Fame and it has nothing to do with his records. He never did anything for the company or it's image. I voted for Coleman but would have voted for Frank Shamrock had his name been printed right instead of "Ryan"!!!!

My Vote is for PETE ROSE... Umm wait.. wrong hall of fame.. STill He is in the WWE Hall of Fame Every orginazation with a hall of fame should put pete in until baseball wakes up and puts him in. who cares what the man did off the field.. its what he did on the field that should count.. if that was the case.. Bae Ruth should not be in the hall and many others...

Why do people want tank??? He stunk! His stlye was swing like a monkey until he gasses and get his a$$ whooped. I just watched the abbott vs mir fight and abbott got destroyed and submitted fairly easy. He had no ground game. Frank Shamrock, bas, pat and other people deserves it way more

Wow! 1/3 of the votes go to Tank. He will never be inducted unless he comes back and wins and gets a title around his gut. He's also never beaten anybody, reputable. He lost in his debut fight in Pride and then ran to the Rage organization, with his tail between his leg.
