    MMA Record: 34-10
    UFC Record: 10-6

    UFC Accomplishments:
    Four time Bantamweight title challenger

    WEC Accomplishments:
    Featherweight champion

    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.

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

    the UFC HOF has no credibility

    if there was an actual MMA HOF Urijah is easily in it

    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.
