Tito Ortiz Missing from Hall of Fame

source: http://www.ufc.com/fighter/hallOfFame

Has anyone else noticed that Tito Ortiz has been removed from the Hall of Fame section of ufc.com? Has there been any word on it from Dana White that anyone has seen?

I don't think that there's anything a fighter can do or say (besides either **** or murder someone or maybe go on a racist tirade thats caught on film or social media) that would get them removed from the Hall of Fame. It appears that the UFC is trying to remove him from their history.

ALSO after the Jones/Glover fight the UFC posted that Jon Jones has the most wins in UFC LHW history with 14 wins. Tito has 15 wins. I know some of his earlier fights may not have been considered LHW, but they were counting them until recently!

What do you guys think the UFC is trying to accomplish? Do you think they are just in their actions here?

I'm not a Tito nuthugger or even close. But I do think the guy has done a lot for the UFC and should be treated with greater respect now that hes left the company.

p.s. I searched for this topic and couldnt find it. If its already been discussed, MODS please delete. Thanks.

It's because there is no Hall of Fame currently in MMA. The link in your post, while containing some legitimate hall of fame fighters, is not a legitimate hall of fame, it's a propaganda tool to promote one promotion. The people running the UFC are too insecure to allow the UFC to not be bigger then MMA in any capacity.

I like MMA less because of this forum

Could be nothing. Or it could be yet another example of the drama-queen the UFC has turned into. They just removed Nate Diaz from the rankings, as well. IDK.

The UFC HOF is more like the Dana White HOF. If you wana be in there you need to be his bitch.

Thats what i was about to say, until I checked UFC uk site, and both Randy and Tito are up there still in the HOF!

Clearly they haven't updated it yet... I mean Bonnar and Griffin aren't in it yet and they were inducted almost a year ago.

I'm going to assume that July 5th weekend they are going to put Big Nog and Wandy in the hall and then redo the site

Make the WW division great again

Clearly they're trying to out-potato Tito.

Me too. Even I think that Randy stabbed Dana in the back by not telling about signing with Bellator. Nothing wrong with him signing with Bellator, but why keep it a secret? UFC wasn't doing anything with him anyway.

Never will I ever be fake, never will I follow

The Dana White hall of fame has no time for the likes of Tito Ortiz.

This is the reason why I pay no attention to the HoF. When was the last time the President of the NFL removed someone from the HoF because he did not like them?

All speculation but we have seen this kind of crap from Dana before.
