    Since Rampages career is nearing its end, i was wondering if most people agree he should be a shoe in for the UFC HOF.

    Rampages UFC record stands at 7-4, He won the LHW belt and defended it once.

    His Key wins are

    -Chuck Liddell x2 (Former Champ, HOFer)
    -Dan Henderson (Former Champ, future HOFer)
    -Wanderlei Silva (Former Champ, future HOFer)
    -Lyoto Machida (Former Champ)
    -Keith Jardine
    -Matt Hamill
    -Ricardo Arona (Pride)
    -Igor Vovchanchyn (Pride)
    -Kevin Randleman (Pride)
    -Murilo Bustamante (Pride)

    His Key Losses are

    -Wanderlei Silva x2
    -Shogun Rua
    -Forrest Griffin
    -Rashad Evans
    -Jon Jones
    -Kazushi Sakuraba


    I think Rampage is a definite HOFer no doubt. He made a mark on the sport, being of the the biggest stars ever in MMA. He won and defended UFC gold, and ended the reign of Chuck Liddell. Rampages losses for the most part have come against top competition and championship level fighters.

    Do You Agree? Is Rampage a definite HOFer in your eyes?

    I think it's bound to happen just because his name is in the mainstream, though his recent behavious isn't helping his cause.

    Nope. Between his obnoxious sense of entitlement to his stint in his monster truck, think he's done more harm to the UFC than good.

    I don't like all the complaining/bitching he has been doing lately either, and his loss to Bader was disappointing. I still think he is a true legend of the sport though. imo.

    Objectively speaking, I would say that he absolutely SHOULD be in the HOF, but at this point, I think it's pretty safe to say that he absolutely WON'T be in the HOF.

    Unless he and Dana have some monumental breakthrough in their relationship, I imagine that Page will leave the UFC for Bellator, and that would absolutely cement his spot as NOT ever touching the HOF as long as Dana is alive...

    There is no way you can justify not having Rampage in the hall of fame. Of course, the UFC hall of fame is a stupid, meaningless invention of Dana White but if we're actually talking a hypothetical MMA hall of fame, Rampage is beyond an obvious choice.

    I vote yes.

    He also beat Forrest in my opinion.

    Hes had a great career either way, it will be great if he can go out with win unlike so many formers.

    No doubt at all that Rampage is a hall of famer. He is a legend of the sport.

    That red text hurts my eyes....

    Page is definitely HoF worthy, but I doubt he will ever be inducted. He talked way too much shit about the UFC, plus it's not like HoF matters.

    Legend.

    The UFC HOF is a joke and I don't care if he's in. He's a HOFer if a real one ever gets made.

    Big name, sold a lot of PPVs, knocked out Liddell at the height of his career (and finished him in Pride years before that, too), and was the only guy after Liddell able to defend his belt until Jones. Even if he's being a butthead now I think he'd deserve it, although it may make Dana not wanna give it to him.

    The UFC HOF already has super low credibility, it would lose all cred if Rampage did not make it in.

    Legend in the sport, people voting "no" are letting hate cloud their judgment.

    Why people even mention the UFC "hall of fame" boggles my mind.
