I wouldn't say so, his accomplishments are already impressive enough as is to be called one of the best (of course it wouldn't have hurt)

He's already a UFC champion.

No, belts are largely meaningless, they're just scraps of metal.

His resume and his heart are all he needs to be remembered with. Plus, he was at least briefly #1 at MW and he's been p4p for a while, which means a lot more than a championship belt.

Was never in discussion for best of all time at his weight class or any other. I don't think people are using the "he didn't win the UFC title" argument, because the discussion itself isn't taking place.

It's like Wandy. Wand never got a UFC belt but he's a legend.
This. And I don't even like Wand. Big are legends.

No.

When he was in his prime, Pride was the shit and he beat the best there at that time.

Henderson is one of the greatest fighters to have ever lived. He held two PRIDE titles at the same time when PRIDE was #1. It should not hurt him, but the only title left for him was a UFC title and he had two Unification matches where he lost his chance to get it. Regardless. His victories are a who's who of legends.
