Militich is on the **** list and there is no way Franklin would make the HOF before Hughes or Chuck. The only two fighters I can think of at the moment who deserve to be HOF are Hughes and Chuck. Mask rest his soul was not a fighter so has no place in the HOF.

Hmmmm It's not called "The UFC Fighter Hall of Fame". Would we argue that Bruce Buffer won't have a place in the HOF or Joe Rogan. I imagine Greg Jackson would warrant a place in there eventually. something to think about

Here is the proof that I KNOW Chuck is getting the nod for HOF this year. This is the youtube video of Dana talking about Chuck retiring after UFC 97

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvoqDjtnmMM

(contains some languge of course...its Dana talking)

didn't know if you guys had seen this yet or not. rather good video to be honest.

May i ask, who is in charge of giving out Hall of Fame slots?

I figured it would just be the UFC.

The issue is if some name mentioned get involved such as Franklin/Pulver, i see leagues within leagues, I mean, Hughes, Randy and Liddell at this time being surely stand alone at the summit.

For the future depending your gonna have GSP, Anderson annd BJ.
