In all seriousness the guy deserves it. He's got the most wins in UFC history and is the middleweight champ. Even if you question his wins/losses, he's only lost to the best/legends.
never lost two in a row.....TUF winner...belt holder....19 wins and counting....yep he deserves it
He paved the way for European fighters in general
100%. The only question mark against him was never fighting for the title - now he holds the title, so job done!
Absolutely. He's as sure in as all the other special snowflakes.
Without a doubt a HOFer.
Anyone who thinks he doesn't deserve it is insane
He's a huge part of UFC history.
he was even before he won the belt
100% a HOF'er i loved his season of tuf also
I admi it, i doubted the man.
He has done everything required to earn hof status.
All he has to do is not pull off a frank shamrock and piss off BLAF.
That should've been Josh Haynes career...
That son of a bitch...
Absolute no brainer.
Singlehanded my responsible for European MMAs early growth, champion, TUF winner, potential to have the most wins of all time in the UFC. The guys first ballot. HOFer.
Despite what some haters will say, he was a UFC HOF'er even before beating Rockhold.
the belt sealed it
Well deserved. He's had a great career. So happy to see him win that belt.
