Kenny Florian Retires
 
KenFlo announced his retirement yesterday, and it's seemed to spark quite a bit of discussion amongst the hardcores. So I ask...is he a UFC "Hall of Famer"? :ninja:

He never won the belt even fighting 3 different weight classes. I respect Ken Flo and enjoyed watching him fight, but HOF is for legends like Hughes, Couture, Ortiz, Liddell, etc.

ok ... kenflo was a better than avg fighter .. .not too many guys get 3 titles .. but to me, he is a perennial runner up .. couldn't win TUF and couldn't win the title ... the HoF is for legends of the sport or pioneers ... kenflo is neither ... i don't agree with mask being in their, but he did do a lot from the sport from promoting tapout trying to make it mainstream and sponsoring fighters so they could concentrate more on mma .....

I like Ken Flo but no, he should not be in the hall of fame.

Kenny Powers on the other hand....

HOF no.

I voted no. I also never understood why Couture got in either.

No. Sure, he's better than average, and is well known both for fighting and announcing, but he's no legend.
