Which Active UFC Fighters Are Hall Of Fame Bound?
 
I was curious to see who people think should one day be in the UFC Hall of Fame...

I currently think only 2 active fighters deserve a future spot in the hall of fame, here they are...

Matt Hughes: The guy has been praised has being the most dominant welterweight in the UFC. Althought some would argue, you can't deny that Hughes is a future UFC Hall of famer.

Chuck Liddell: Chuck is known for his takedown defense and is impressive stand-up...He's knocked out hall of famer Randy Couture twice, knocked out Ortiz once (soon to be twice :laugh: ). He's been the most dominant UFC LHW ever and is one of the most popular fighters in the UFC if not the most. IMO he deserves a future spot in the UFC Hall of fame.

Your Thoughts...

hughes will, and chuck. i hope not tim... but prolly tito will.

essentially, i'll be a big joke, with guys getting in who just happened to be the ones marketed most and pretected most... oh well...

That's probably about the list.

The crow? I don't think so.

If they retired right now Chuck and Matt would be in. Tito will eventually be in too. GSP and BJ will both be in but they still have alot of career ahead of them.

Yeah, Matt Hughes and Chuck Liddell are definatly going to be hall of famers. I don't know if Tito will though...
I think he has potentual to be.

I dont know, isnt hall of fame is based on career achievements? i mean tito was the champ for a while, but it wasnt a spectacular reign he had. He is surely one of the biggest figure in the UFC, but im not sure he would be in it when he retires.

Chuck and Matt are getting in there for sure.

We'll have to see how Tito's 'comeback' plays out. He dissed Dana in the past.

No its not just based on achievments, its also based on how much you did for the sport, how big of an influence you were and how big of a name you are...

To be honest I almost put Tim Sylvia as one of my picks, just for the fact that he is, along with Randy Couture, the only 2 times heavyweight champ...But the HW division is so weak that he might not make it...
