Missing from UFC Hall Of Fame

The UFC is seriously missing some people on the hall of fame and even if they fight in other organizations I think it's a disservice to the sport by not acknowledging some of the great fighters who made the UFC and attracted the crowds in the early days when it couldnt get sanctioned or when it couldnt get good ppv deals. Some of the Main ones would have to be Mark Coleman, the first heavyweight champion and two time tournament champion. Don Frye should be in there because of his popularity and for being one of the first true mixed martial artists who cross trained their skills. I also think Marco Ruas should be in there as well as Frank Shamrock (even though him and dana are on bad terms, they should be professional and still acknowledge the fact that he was one the best middleweight/lhw champions they have ever had. )
Your thoughts and input are appreciated

I don't think the hall of fame should be so easy to get into. I pretty much agree with the people in thier now but I think they should try to make it an exclusive thing. Matt Hughes is a shoe in.

I'd say that Mark Coleman, Frank Shamrock, Don Frye and Pat Militech should all be inducted some day.


I believe that Big John McCarthy will also be inducted once he retires.
