    Mods..please add poll, thanks.

    I think he definitely should be inducted in July. It would be such a send off for him (as well as his funeral) if his wife and friends spoke on the podium for him, being inducted into the HOF.

    He's a true pioneer of the sport.

    The HOF is a funny one, though. While Stephan Bonnar and Mask gets in, Matt Serra and Evan Tanner are left out.

    What say Sherdog?

    Absolutely yes.

    He has a better claim for the spot than Mask.

    I personally think most of the early guys who competed regularly and won should be in the Hall of Fame.

    I would say so. WIth UFC owning the pride library as well, on top of him being a former HW champion. I don't see any reason why he shouldn't be in there with his stable mate Mark Coleman.

    Without a doubt. At the very least they should give him some kind of achievement/award, something for his family. Something that guarantees his "Fighting spirit" will continue to live on.

    I'm enjoying the love for Randleman, he's a one of a kind guy and fighter. Sometimes these forums don't disappoint you, this is one of those times.

    Depends on if his time in Pride counts towards it. I think it should since the UFC purchased Pride, so yeah.

    Bas Rutten was inducted, and he only had two UFC fights.

    Both won UFC gold.

    If Stephan Bonnar is in , i don't see why Kevin Randleman shouldn't be a hall of famer

    He was 4-3 in the UFC I believe. I'd have to say no.
