as much as i like jens i voted no. hes a great guy and a great FIGHTER. by fighter i mean he comes to fight not just compete in the sport of mma. he is a better fighter than most of the champs in the ufc today. that being said i just dont think he has had enough accomplishments in the ufc to justify him being in the hof. sorry dave

Ken Shamrock and Randy Couture have had it out with the UFC brass too. I'm sure this won't be a popular opinion here but, I would say that Tito Ortiz is worthy of HOF status in the UFC, and he's had it out with Dana more than anybody. Plenty of HOF members of other sports leagues have also done and said questionable things, but it doesn't change their accomplishments.

Nothing against Pulver at all, but if an argument for Jens can be made with an MMA record of 23-14 with only 8 fights in the UFC, so can one for Frank at 23-10 with 5 fights in the UFC. Especially if the bulk of the argument is based on being the first to win a specific title.

Honestly, I say they both should be recognized, however neither one really measures up to the level of Matt, Chuck, or Randy who are truly deserving of the status on all accounts.

Randy's deal was money.. and he had issues with Dana.. Not the whole of the UFC...

Tito in the HOF??? What has really done to earn that?? Won some fights.. and ducked Chuck..

Very good point there...

Too bad there won't be an MMA Hall of Fame.. if there was.. then sure Jens gets in

Pulver is more anti-UFC than Congress is anti-USA. No way.

He does have more defenses than chuck.. but look at the caliber of competition...

I voted NO even though I am a fan of Jens. He hasn't done enough in the UFC, he only won 6 fights and wasn't there all that long. He went from organization to organization fighting. That would be like putting Jose Aldo in the UFC HOF right now because he's the first FW champion.
