    I never really got to see him fight very much but his credentials are undeniable. It always bothered the shit out of me as well that Ken Shamrock got all the spotlight when his accomplishments pale in comparison to Franks (on paper at least.) I feel like I read somewhere that Frank talked shit about Dana or something of that nature, and we all know how personal Dana makes things. Any insight on Frank Shamrock would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Frank should be in. Really one of the first guys to be good at a couple disciplines. The HOF is a joke compared to other sports.

    Who cares. UFC HOF is a joke. Fucking Mask is in it but Evan Tanner and Frank Shamrock aren't? Pathetic.

    As long as Dana White is president of the UFC, he isn't getting in.

    I think Frank was a pioneer. Imo he was the very first complete fighter. I think he should be in the hof.

    Frank was an assassin and he deserves to be in. But cue the fuckboy brigade acting like he's before their time.

    Look him up

    Filthy nasty. He defended his Ufc belt 4 times. That’s HOF number alone right there

    I loved his last two fights with Strikeforce against Nick Diaz and Cung Le. Even though he lost both, so he was scrappy and tough and and entertaining as hell. Those were the only two fights of his I got to see live.

    It seems to me that WWF is the only reason Ken is the more famous/celebrated of the two brothers. I knew about Ken Shamrock at 9 years old; years before I knew what MMA was because I liked professional wrestling like many kids. Frank was a much better fighter and had a better personality.

    Beast...too bad Dana didn't like him saying he's vacating his title for lack of competition haha that's why he'll never be in the HOF
