Thanks a lot Coldcall. I'm not trying to say Tanner wasn't a good fighter or that people didn't like him but trying to pretend this guy was a top fighter or that he was loved by fans like Tito or Liddell it just isn't true.

I actually voted yes, and if I had my own little UFC HOF Tanner would def be in there as he's always been one of my favourite fighters.

However, the more I think about it the more he doesn't deserve it based on accomplishments. (Neither does Coleman IMO).

I think the worst thing that would come from Evan being inducted would be it because of his death not his career.

To put Tanners career to one side and remember and honour him for his death would be a shame because he was IMO a great fighter, not HOF worthy but great nonetheless.

you do NOT throw every champion in the hall of fame.

I may get neg repped for this, but oh well.

If Ken Shamrock was such a clinch for the HOF with his mediocre UFC record (1-4 in his final 5 UFC fights) then to me its not a far stretch to let Evan in. He beat Severn, Kimo 2 times and thats about it. Tanner also 1-4 in his last 5 fights beat Baroni twice, Lawler, Terrell. Both were champs briefly.

Also Evan unlike Ken didn't pull off retarded fits of rage, didn't look like a child who had just soiled himself either, something Ken was known for. Their accomplishments were similar, Tanner had more class.

For that reason, i voted yes. Sorry if i offended any Shamrock fans.
