I was wondering if some of the guys who dominated PRIDE and made the move to the UFC in the twilight of their careers will be recognized in the UFC Hall of Fame. Guys like Big Nog, Wandy, and Cro Cop who had so many achievements and accolades when the best fighters in the world were in Japan, but came to the UFC late in their careers with mixed results. I feel these legends should be recognized for their achievements outside the UFC. I understand if Dana doesn't want to honor every great PRIDE fighter, but I think he owes it to the fighters who came over to the states and fought for the UFC. You can even make the argument that Mark Coleman's fights outside the UFC contributed a good deal to his bid into the Hall [his UFC career alone probably doesn't constitute a Hall of Fame resume]. These guys contributed greatly to the success of MMA and therefor the success of the UFC as well. Fighters who made their legend in Japan and came stateside in their later years deserve to be enshrined in the UFC Hall of Fame.
Tell me what you guys think. Should guys who made their names in PRIDE and came to the UFC be named to the UFC hall of Fame?
