    Because he's good friends with the red goof, plus winning TUF and a WW title didn't hurt.

    He can eat more pasta than most as well.


    He doesn’t belong in the HOF but nobody gives a shit about it anyway. He will always be etched in history for one of the greatest upsets in UFC history.

    It's just good evidence that there needs to be a real, legitimate hall of fame because the UFC's official one isn't that.

    Bisping is much more deserving than Serra - but yeah Serra did accomplish some big things, but outside of that like 1-2 years, he really was average at very best.

    In order to be the best, you gotta beat the best.
    Fat Matt one of the few do beat GSP.
    If you don't know now you know.

    Agree he's more deserving, but there was also bias since he was british

    Pretty sure it's because he's tight with Dana, but he's inducted into the "Pioneer Wing" of the UFC HOF, so I'm guessing him being the first Ultimate Fighter winner to win a title is the official reasoning.
