    When you look at his career body of work, it's probably a no. No real marquee victories, never held a title, & at 17-8 his record isn't great.

    But when you think of his UFC relevance to the welterweight division for nearly a decade now you start to think its a maybe. Koscheck has been in 23 UFC bouts, tied with Chuck & surpassed only by Couture, Hughes, & Tito.

    He has fought for the title. He will be remembered as one of the big names of the early UFC WW division. He fought to a split decision with Hendricks, the current champ. I think it's close.. What do you think?

    His titleshot was un derserved at the time. If you put him in you need to put Fitch in before him.

    He was good, not great. But Bonnar is in so really who cares anymore.

    Still a "no" to me. Though.

    I defnetly dont give much of a damn for Hall of Fame and such... But still, I feel like people in it should be the ones who did great things in the sport via their skills, victories and achievements.

    Not via popularity and PPV's.

    He fought on TUF and for the title, he didn't win either. To be honest I think it'd be a waste of space to put him or any other TUF 1ers in there(besides Griffin or Bonnar).

    First, you have to make the UFC HOF worth something. Right now, it's meaningless.

    What is the criteria to get in to a HOF that actually honors greatness? I think any serious fight fan says no to Kosch pretty easily based on how we judge fighter's careers.

    I just think the entire cast of Season 1 should be put in as a collective. Not as individuals

    Not quite. I think that if you haven't won a title you're gonna need something else really special on your r

    Dana could acknowledge his hard on for the season 1 guys and do it in a fair way.

    I actually would have preferred this.

    When you look at the Hall of Fame of other major sports, there are a lot of guys that weren't amazing, but were recognizable & respectable.

    Not everyone can be Babe Ruth or Michael Jordan. Josh Koscheck is a name I will recognize even 20 years from now after much better fighters have come along.

    I wouldn't be upset if he was, but I'm not sure I could find a good enough reason to justify it either.
