    Should the UFC 1 night Tornament winners be in their Hall of Fame at some point?

    First off a few are in already. Gracie X 3 Tornament winner, Severn X 2, Coleman X 2 and Couture. This is the UFC hall of fame I mean not an MMA one. They have a T-Shirt guy in so youd wonder if they wouldnt give some of the old timers a nod down the line. I suppose in a way they arent going to put every person who holds a UFC title in it so I dont think they will all go in.

    The Obvious ones would be Don Frye is a X 2 winner and Mark Kerr also X 2 winner. Both legends of the sport, real recognisable.

    Then you have Vitor Belfort and Pat Miletich who held UFC Titles as well as tornament wins.

    The next most likely have to be Hendo and Saku, although neither held a UFC title they are legit MMA legends and would make the Hall of fame more credible.

    Guy Mezger was 4-1 in the UFC and beat Tito to win his Tornament

    There are a handfull of names that would look strange in there, these 2 arent so bad,

    UFC 12 >200lbs winner Jerry Bohlander - 11-4, beat a couple of recognisable guys
    UFC 14 >200lbs winner Kevin Jackson - 4-2, beat a couple of recognisable guys

    These 2 look a bit more out of place,

    UFC 3 winner Steve Jennum - Replacement figher so only fought once was 3-2 overall with a loss to tank BY SUBMISSION
    UFC 23 >200lbs winner Kenichi Yamamoto - 5-11 record, pretty much what the record says.

    The mask thing throws a curve ball about the UFC Hall of fame,but I don't think any of the guys mentioned will get in the UFC Hall of fame.

    I'd like to see Miletich in there,(and also involved in UFC commentary,he was the only one on the strikeforce broadcasts that I could listen too)not only for his Stella UFC fighting record,but for his training of other great fighters that were at one stage dominating in the UFC.

    Gracie,Shamrock,Severn and Coleman are the choices from the day,I now think places for the old school guys are closed.

    If only the could go back and take Mask out... would just look cold hearted to do now.

    What about Hendo? Id be supprised if he didnt get in even if his UFC record isnt great. Crazy to think 2 time Tornament winners arent in and Ken Shamrock never won a one.

    Until Frank Shamrock is put into the Hall of Fame, it will remain a joke.

    Frank should of been one of the original inductees,but those bridges have been well and truly burnt now.
