Default Dana White on Tito in HOF/ Rogan/ etc...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEeRU...feature=relmfu

Interesting history about Rogan.
"Joe Rogan was on Fear Factor when I approached him to do the early UFCs. Joe Rogan did hsi first 15 UFCs for free...he gets paid now BELIEVE ME..."

Dana is adding him into the shortlist of guys that really helped build the UFC. He mentions Chuck, Matt, Rich, etc (of course) but now he is bringing Rogan into the mix.
possible HOF in the future?
Could be...
What's everyone's opinion?

imo if you have guys like dan severn, mark coleman and mask in the hall of fame, tito and rogan are definitely going to get in the hof .. just like guys like anderson, gsp and bj ...

For sure, I definitely believe Rogan had a big part in helping build the UFC...he put a recognizable face to the organization & thus boosted it's image...not to mention he was & is light years ahead of most other MMA play-by-play guys. Belongs in the HOF as a builder, IMO.

UFC would never feel the same without Joe Rogan and his love for Kenflo and his black shirts.. Just feels right putting in HOF....

Did you agree with that decision? I am, I know you were close with Charles & I'm sure that you're glad that he was honored in that way, but did you have any reservations when you heard the news?

As it should be, really. I can't think of another major sports hall of fame that doesn't include people besides the athletes and coaches themselves...builders/executives/trainers/ring announcers/broadcasters/contributors/journalists/etc have all been inducted into the various major sports HOF's.
