    Jim Miller may not be a champ contender but dude is super under the radar for his accomplishments. He has wins over:
    J Lau 2x
    Guida
    Guillard
    Charles Oliveira
    Gomi
    Thiago Alves
    Yancy medeiros
    Tibau
    Duane Ludwig
    Shalorus
    Danny Castillo

    As well taking Dustin porier to a majority decision. Most wins in LW division, in the ufc since 2008 and 18 career subs. I think he has a case for HOF. What do you guys think?

    He is a stud, but I am not sure about a HOF

    He is a legend that is remembered for some good wins and some wars. Sadly, I feel like he still needs to money that is why he keeps fighting.

    Dude has Lyme disease and is still out there getting it. That's beyond impressive.

    His accomplishments are quite well known I think. But he's another one of those very good, but not great fighters. Never quite made his way to a title shot, so it would be a pretty tough argument to put him into the HoF. He was close to getting a TS but came up short in some big fights against Benson, Nate, and Cowboy earlier in his career. Tons of respect for the guy though, he just keeps on fighting despite declining skills and a constant battle with Lyme disease.

    If Forrest Griffin can be in the HOF, I don't see why Jim Miller can't be. He's the definition of gatekeeper and does his job well.

    didn't know that about him. my mother-in-law has it (from a tick bite many years ago) and it is no joke. she's been on some sort of natural supplements for a few years slowly getting better

    and with his total wins and sub wins, i'm down for HOF.

    They should have a True Journeyman Wing of the hall of fame

    Jim Miller would be in it

    The WWE HOF lets in too many people but the UFC HOF doesn't let enough people in IMO. Guys like Miller, Cowboy Cerrone, Diego Sanchez, and dare I say Lauzon should be in the HOF eventually for creating so many different memories and always bringing it in fights.

    Sadly, the UFC has zero interest in remembering the past (modern day fans probably don't even know Randy Couture ffs) and always pushes the next card as the biggest ever (which completely burns out fans resulting in a very high turnover in their fanbase not to mention the toxic "is___ the GOAT now?" attitude of the fair weather fans) so this is unlikely to happen.

    Virtually no one cares about the UFC HOF because of this IMO and it's always a complete afterthought when someone is inducted so fuck it.
