    Although he never held a title in the UFC, and his best fights were fought in the WEC, he was definitely a pioneer for the lighter weight classes and an extremely popular UFC fighter.

    If Mask is in, Urijah deserves it too.

    EDIT: One second late.

    Yes belt in wec should count as the UFC bought them and UFC didn't have that weight class at the time or he would have been in the UFC and champ

    Absolutely. The man put the featherweight division on the map, just like Penn put the lightweight division on the map.

    Probably, it just kinda showed that he is a dirty fighter.

    BJ Penn did with the help of Jens Pulver. Their first fight put the light weight division on the map.

    Yes. He was the face of the WEC. which was on cable on versus. Was a proponent in many people originally gaining interest in MMA let alone the 145 division(AKA the lighter divsions). He is a first ballot Hall of Famer. Even Dominick Cruz agrees. Also yes UFC hall of fame isn't as prestigious as other hall of fames like someone else said albeit with more F bombs.
