Agreed, but I think that much like the WWE hall of fame, who neglict and re-write history, and pass over those who aren't in Vince McMahon's good graces, UFC's will be the only real one that is recognized by mainstream fans, so I'm talking about guys recognized by UFC and mainstream fans as pioneers or whatnot.
I think Tank would be cool because he was one of the first superstars, even though he was more famous for his mouth.
