    *knew

    It's all at Dana's discretion and judgement, which we know is sub-par at best.

    Forget the hall of fame, it should be called Dana's buddies.

    With Danas history of incoherence I guess nothing is impossible.

    Same. That is the unofficial rumor.

    As for the UFC HOF being a joke, it is what it is. If they had called it the UFC wall of honor or some shit nobody would have complained. It's just a title.

    don't think Tito, Randy, Ken & Coleman are Dana's 'buddies'.

    there should definitely be an MMA HoF.

    Run by whom exactly?

    Do you know how other HoFs work? It's a process. There's a large committee compiled of many people from across the country who have been working in the industry or involved directly with it for decades. Someone's name is submitted, they go through an Byzantine election process where they have to get 80% of the votes or higher, the field is narrowed to 25, 15, 10, and finally 5. The guys on that five then are individually voted on. All of this happens five years after the athlete's retirement.

    There's also special provisions for non-players/fighters who contribute outside the sport to help further it that are recognized, i.e., Mask who should be noted as a special contributor.

    Here's the important part in italics so you pay attention. A pro HoF doesn't have control over who goes in and who doesn't. It's entirely up to the people on the committee.

    So if you want to create that kind of establishment with the endorsement of, well, shit I guess the UFC anyway, go for it, because they're about the only org that's been around since the start and the only one that isn't going to fold anytime soon. Because if they do, you'll be getting candidates from Bellator, WSOF and ONE kind of orgs.

    Also keep in the mind fighters like to come out of retirement, get popped for steroids, fight in other subpar orgs and a million other considerations. Good luck.

    I would like to nominate people that get offended by everything that UFC/Dana does.
