I have no problems with Forrest going into the HoF. Stephan is going just by association. Other than being on the wrong side of the TUF 1 fight, he hasn't done anything of real note in the UFC. Forrest, like has been stated, was the a winner of the first TUF season and went on to win the LHW title. 3 fights with Tito, beat Rampage and tapped Shogun. I have no problems with it. And Stephan was just in the right place at the right time.

I also want to go on record and say I don't mind that Charles Mask Lewis is in the HoF. TapouT has been huge for the UFC and really made MMA clothing a "lifestyle brand". They were innovators and really helped and helped sponsor a lot of guys. Since they wont put a brand in the HoF, inducting Mask was the right thing to do.

Absolutely, 100% agree. I'm SO sad to see Forest retire!

Aside from what I'm quoting, UFC 59 was my very first live UFC show. I can still remember standing in my box seat, half drunk screaming my f'in HEAD OFF for Forest in this sea of Tito fans in Orange County.
I remember towards the end everyone was screaming for Forest to win and wow was that an exciting night I lost my voice for 3 whole days!

I also remember meeting Evan Tanner that night too after his win but that isn't what this thread is for and I never go off topic....but anyway, YES, Forest, the very first TUF and nothing but excitement after excitement and of course he needs to be in the HOF.

WAR FOREST!

The fight against Bonnar was declared the #1 UFC fight of all time in the UFC Ultimate 100 Greatest Fights.

Three fights of the year.

Four fight of the nights. 1 Submission of the night

10 and 5

TUF Coach

I think that all of that coupled with what his fight with Bonnar did for the business means he should get it. Taken bit by bit it's not a whole lot but when added up I think it is.
