    The man is a legend IMO. Deserves a HOF spot.
    Look at that run
    Plus he also beat the likes of:
    Stipe Miocic
    Mark Hunt
    Derrick Lewis

    Don't see why not. He's had a great ufc career. Although i'm sure you'll get a bunch of people implying you need a Jones, GSP. or Silva like legacy before you can ever be HOF worthy.

    is this a serious question? Hes arguably a top 5 HW ever and has one of the best resumes in the divisions history

    Werdum
    Struve
    Cro Cop
    Yvel
    Gonzaga
    Neson
    Carwin
    Cain
    Murr
    Hunt
    Stipe
    Rothwell
    Ivanov
    Lewis

    no brainer. And he had maybe the best run to the UFC title in HW history

    Matt Serra and forest griffin are in the HOF, literally anyone who has ever touched a UFC belt should be with that as the bar.

    Easily the most difficult roads to a title shot. Since his debut against Werdum of all people he's never had an easy fight against a no name bum.

    Hall of shame imo.

    His brutal dismantling in the second and third Cain fights showed he deserves no place in the history books

    He is better or equal to a number of HOF members. Bisping, Forrest, Rashad and Bas come to mind.

    That being said I say no. If he had come out on top of the Cain trilogy I would say yes.

    Should have to be the top of your weight class for an "era" to make it in

    They let everyone in. Normal hall of fames borderline, ufc hall of fame, depends how well they fished Dana's trouser trout.

    No maybe about it, he had the best UFC run at HW of all time and it's not even close.

    Personally,no. But 80% of fighters get to be in the ufc hall of fame so why not
