Here's my list, as of right now:
Matt Hughes (as much as I don't like his style)
Sean Sherk (first Lightweight inductee)
I can also see BJ getting in there if he drops down to lightweight and, after a little comeback, beats out Sherk for the title.
I also see GSP going into the hall of fame, assuming he defends his title from Hughes, and he will eventually. I don't expect him to lose for a while.
I don't think that there are any middleweights who can beat Anderson Silva, so I think he should go in there.
If Vera takes the Heavyweight title, and I hope he does, and hangs onto it for a long time then he should go in.
If, and this is a big if, Franklin wins back his title from Silva, it must be from Silva, then he'd still have a shot at it, but he has to beat Silva once to get back his title and once to defend it to really deserve the title in my book.
Besides Vera, I don't see anyone really good in the heavyweight division. If Sylvia beats Vera with a KO (no more f*cking decisions) then maybe I'll be able to start talking about him as a conteder.
If Arlovski starts on a comeback streak, and I expect him to pummel Marcio Cruz, and then takes back his title in exciting and dominant fashion then I think he deserves to go to the hall of fame, but he needs to re-establish his dominance as well as that exciting flare he had coming up.
My last note is an up and comer who is the only guy who really has a shot at Silva. I think if Mike Swick can somehow beat Silva and have a good run as a title holder he definitely has a shot. He's charismatic, good and exciting in the cage.
