    Obviously many people think the HOF is a joke. So who would you add and who would you drop?

    I'm not including the fight wing.

    This is the HOF currently...

    Pioneer wing:

    Royce Gracie
    Ken Shamrock
    Dan Severn
    Randy Couture
    Mark Coleman
    Chuck Liddell
    Matt Hughes
    Tito Ortiz
    Pat Miletich
    Bas Rutten
    Big Nog
    Don Frye
    Maurice Smith
    Kazushi Sakuraba
    Matt Serra
    Rich Franklin
    Kevin Randleman

    Modern era wing:

    Forrest Griffin
    BJ Penn
    Urijah Faber
    Ronda Rousey
    Michael Bisping
    Rashad Evans
    Georges St. Pierre

    Contributors:

    Mask Lewis
    Jeff Blatnik
    Bob Meyrowitz
    Joe Silva
    Bruce Connal
    Art Davie
    Marc Ratner

    I would drop Mask. I'm iffy on Serra and Faber, I'd probably drop those two.

    I'll add Frank Shamrock, Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo, Fertitta bros, Shogun, Wanderlei, Hendo, Rampage, Dana and Rogan.

    Eliminate weight cutting. Have Pride rules!
    It is a good list everyone deserves to be on it who is.

    But of course Anderson Silva should be added

    Why is Rashad on there though? Bisping was a top company man so that makes sense

    If we have Serra and Faber in there, then the list of people who also deserve to get in is too big. But since they are, here I'll go.

    Throw Frank Shamrock in the Pioneer Wing for sure. Not having him in there is petty Dana White bullshit. And if you're going to have Serra in, there are some other guys like Sylvia who could penetrate as well. Won't happen though due to said bullshit. Not that it'd be very deserving, but if they decided to say fuck it and throw Tank in too, I wouldn't complain. More of an icon inductee rather than a legacy one.

    The ones who'll get in but who aren't there yet are DJ, Andy, Cain, JDS, Vitor, Machida, and Cormier.

    If you're going to have Faber in, Hendo probably deserves to be there as well. Wouldn't complain about Hendricks either. You could make an argument for Brock too due to what his presence did to expand the sport. Snagging the belt during his tenure certainly helps his cause.

    The obvious answer for being dropped is Serra.

    The obvious answer for being added is Frank Shamrock.

    I agree with them all mostly but why is Matt Serra in the Pioneer wing and GSP in the modern era? They both had their first UFC fight in the early 2000's within 3 years of each other

    It’s the least legit HOF in history. So what does it matter?

    he let himself become a 300+ lbs embarassment. Had a brief stint of greatness against lesser competition. Then got dominated by Fedor and turned into a laughing stock who gave mma a bad name.

    Probably cuz GSP's career lasted longer. He was still fighting in the 2010's.

    Serra had his first pro fight in 1998.

    GSP made his pro debut in 2002.

    Anything before 2000, they consider pioneers.

    Why Frank Shamrock? He only had 5 fights in the UFC??? 35 fights in total almost all of them with the competition.

    Well why did they add Sakuraba then? He only ever had two fights in the UFC. They looked at his overall body of work in PRIDE and other orgs. Fedor should get in on this merit, but it's doubtful.

    At least Frank held a UFC title, Saku never did and he got in.

    Because real HOF actually have criteria that you have to meet to get inducted into them. For the Rock and Roll HOF for instance. You had to have released a song 25 years prior to induction. In the NFL HOF you have to be retired for 5 years. Then you must be nominated, then pass 3 different votes, and finally be voted in by 80% of the voting members.

    I could go on or you could look it all up. The UFC HOF is no more than an employee of the month thing. There is no criteria. There is no voting process. It’s just whomever they feel like putting in there. For instance.. individual fights. I’m not saying they don’t necessarily belong. But, it’s the least legit HOF I’ve ever heard of.

    Yeah but Sakuraba didn't tell DW & the UFC to go Fnck themselves. Frank doesn't seem like the kind of guy who plays well with others and we know how DW reacts to anyone who tries to alpha him.

    I had no idea Faber was on there. That seems a bit odd.

    I would add Aldo and Anderson
