Was watching, Inside MMA, prior to DREAM 14 starting. and someone sent in a question to Bas Rutten asking him "who from the old school UFC (pre-Zuffa) whould be in the Hall of Fame?" Now naturally El Guapo said himself jokingly...but I honestly think he if ANYONE should also be included!!!

Thoughts and your own picks? (if possible give a good reason as to why, I think the winning entry will get a mention on KnoqOut MMA Radio :) )

Bas Rutten hands down man. I know he did not have many fights in the UFC but he won the UFC belt, worked with pride org., and helps train alot of fighters. now what dose that have to do with the UFC not very much, but he as done a lot for the sport. I mean just look at MASK, so I dont think the UFC hall of fame is about fights you have in the UFC or anything like that, it also about helping to to grow the sport which is what MASK did(RIP MASK).So in that scence with what Bas did in the UFC and helping the sport grow I would like to see him in the hall of fame and maybe 1 last fight to say good bye to the fans if possiable.

DEFINITELY Bas, but also Pat Miletich (won a UFC tournament and first WW champ), Frank Shamrock (completely dominate champion for almost 3 years), Don Frye (won 2 UFC tournaments).

Don Frye was my 2nd choice next to Bas

My first choice would definitely be Militech. He won 4 or 5 title fight and a tournament. Either him or fighters training under him have fought in probably 20 UFC title.

In another few years, I think Tim Sylvia, and Arlovski should be in there for their accomplishments. Miletich for sure.

Vitor Belfort for being UFC 12 Heavyweight Tournament Champion & former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.

Hendo would be in the HOF if he had of retired...Former Pride FC Middleweight Champion, Former Pride FC Welterweight Champion, & UFC 17 Middleweight Tournament Winner....but who knows now.

BJ Penn, for being BJ. And GSP. Anderson.

I don't think they should let people get in the HOF until they stop fighting for more than 1 year straight....but they don't care.

Fighters who are in the HOF and still fight - Ken Shamrock, Dan Severn, Randy Couture, Lidell, Hughes, even Coleman....that's fucked. Only Royce Gracie and Mask don't currently fight.

Congrats KaleBarker! You were the first one to point out Pat Miletich and both Kevo and I agree that he deserves it the most! He trained many champs and prominent fighters along with several contenders, in Josh Neer, Spencer Fisher, Robbie Lawler and many more! check out Episode 25 where I cover it in greater detail :)

My first post reply ever. Hello one and all on this awesome site/board.

Since Zuffa decided to cut him off, they might as well show their appreciation by inducting Jens Pulver. The first ever UFC Bantamweight-turned Lightweight Champion has given everything he has had all his career to the fans through his fights and I say it's about time his name gets up there among the UFC elite and by doing so he would also be the first Lightweight fighter to do so.

Also, Bas Rutten for his previously mentioned accomplishments and contributions and, since the UFC wants to grow and reach out to all ages, they will definetly win over some kids. That's right, kids even know who he is since he has appeared on numerous commericals on Cartoon Network for exercise and eating right.
