I believe he should be He was Middle weight champion he always came into fight and left bleeding from his face he had a record of 12-5 in UFC him vs Franklin for the Title was a great fight. I think he should be inducted

No way. Simply put, for a fighter out of his era, he was a great fighter but never truly dominate. He compiled something like 8 wins but never was able to defeat the elites like Tito Ortiz at that time. I don't think it's even close, but that's just my personal opinion.

Well the guys in it at the moment are pioneers of the sport pretty much.

I don't know if Evan should be in there, the guy was a champion, and always came to fight. I don't think he has the same legendary status of any of the guys in it at the moment.

It really depends on the extent they want to induct guys into the UFC Hall Of Fame, what qualifies them? We don't really know yet. Based on the guys that are in there at the moment, I'd say no.

Much love to Evan though.

but i dont think that determines if ur hall of fame worthy or not...wins and losses shouldnt matter, dominance shouldnt matter, yes those can play a part...he did earn the championship belt...and his heart, and just warrior spirit is worthy...TO ME and was a good definition of a fighter and that is hall of fame worthy

So, you want him to be selected into the HOF primarily because of his heart? Just throw Forrest Griffin in there now then.

I'll prob get hated on for this, but no way should he be in the hall of fame. He was a decent fighter and he was a champion (very briefly though), but he didnt really progress anything nor could he hang wit the big names (ace or tito). This is jus gonna be a case of a guy dying too young with decent credentials, but is made bigger than he was due to his death (i.e. Tupac). I think its Jimi Hendrix who said "Once your dead, you've got it made."
