    When ever Dana would talk about Wandy being in the UFC HOF he always said he was a legend and he was an entertainer even when he lost his fight. HE even talked about his losing record inside the UFC but it seemed like he was debating on putting him in once he retired. That's all gone now.

    It also sounded like he would get a Chuck type position after he retired as well. Too bad for him. Shouldn't have accepted the fight in the first place then.

    It doesn't resonate with people. Twenty years from now putting up an MMA hall of fame would be legit.

    If he gets it, Chael should be the one that announces him and has a speech in his honor :icon_lol:

    VIACOM has big pockets they should start an MMA hall of fame. a real one. Start with Royce Gracie and work their way up. guys like Saku in Fedor need to be in a HOF, Frank shamrock as well.

    Any Hall of fame without those gentlemen is an insult to the sport.

    As long as Bonner makes it, that's all that matters.

    *Unless fighting in Nevada where drug testing is standard.

    Fixed that for you.

    Yeah it is. Wand will be a legend in this sport regardless if he's in the HOF or not. The UFC can't take that from him, no matter what they decide to do.

    he's come off badly in all this, but there's probably some reality tv distortion going on as well. Wanderlei is playing the heel very well. His accomplishments still stand and while he hasn't actually failed any drug tests, I'm not sure that matters anyway (see Stephan Bonnar).

    Dana would quickly find a way to avoid any UFC fighter from accepting and induction once retired.
