on a separate note, the articles got worst as time went on. No mention of ANY of the early Shooto guys, and a total lack of respect for many of the WEC guys, which is ridiculous. Rousey, Cyborg and Carano mentioned, but not Fuuji etc...
The fact that Cruz was a "maybe" is a joke.
His only loss is to Faber, who he also holds a win over.
He defended the WEC/UFC BW belt four times and never lost it but was stripped due to injury.
I'm not even a fan but how is he a "maybe"?

UFC hall of fame is pretty pathetic anyway, so I'm not sure why people take it seriously. You're talking about a ceremony where the President of the UFC shows up in a pair of blue jeans and Mike Tyson shirt that he bought from his local flea market.

But it's still cheating. It doesn't matter how small or big the gain is from using banned substances, you still gain an unfair advantage over your opponent.

He would be a borderline candidate imo if he didn't go on this recent head kicking spree. He had a great career, but it was a lot of up and down, he lost quite a few big fights. But goddamn TRT Vitor destroyed some awesome guys, and what makes him a first ballot guy in a legit HOF would be what TS was saying about longevity. He's been fighting top guys in the sport for almost the entire time this has been a sport. And if you don't wanna let guys in who used ped's the damn thing would be pretty empty
