    That would be fair and deserved. But then again, the UFC Hall of Fame doesn't really mean much. Whatever.

    If the Hall of Fame actually had some sort of criteria then he probably wouldn't pass it.

    I guess so, he was the original Lightweight.

    Pity his career went down so quickly, but still - he deserves his credit.

    Yeah, he was the first 55er who was well-known and dominant. Gotta get him in there. He's a legend.

    One of the first events I really got hyped for ended in him getting starched by Lauzon. I remember them saying he never had a chance.. became a fan for life after that. Both great fighters.

    Yes, I think he should. I think the world of the guy so I'm biased.

    Literally no one knows him, and he isn't famous. So obviously no.

    I'm not sure. And I feel very strongly about that.

    It's why I posted, my ambivalence is overwhelming.

    Well I'm pretty sure he's the guy that does those Shamwow commercials,

    So yeah, he is famous.
