    If you were to elect five people to go into the inaugural class of an MMA Hall of Fame, who would it be?

    Rorion Gracie
    Rickson Gracie
    Dana White
    Fedor Emelianenko
    Nobuyuki Sakakibara

    Just a rough list, three contributors and two fighters. Also could go

    Royce Gracie
    Ken Shamrock
    Bas Rutten
    Rickson Gracie
    Fedor Emelianenko

    If all fighters. I like having contributors in there as well though.

    If you are adding Bruce Lee on there then might as well add Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal.

    Replace Randy with Hughes and this looks solid to me.

    I think the issue for me is narrowing it down to 5. I think Rorian is more important to MMA than Royce, seeing as how any of the Gracie brothers could have probably done what Royce did, but Rorian put it all together.

    I don't think Sakuraba is a shoe-in for top 5 MMA contributor of all time. I think a better question is, where the fuck is Helio Gracie?
