"I think he definitely should be. Anybody who's been in there and won the title, whether it be four fights or six fight or whatever. I think he made a huge impact in our sport. I think he brought that whole WWE crowd, too. We saw that in the pay-per-view numbers that he put up, every time he fought. I think it's justified. I think he definitely should be included in the Hall of Fame."

-- It might be a controversial sentiment to convey, namely because of the way former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar ended his run in the Octagon. On his way out, Lesnar lost his last two fights in a row by way of first round technical knockout, each time seeing Lesnar turtled up on the canvas, waiting to be rescued by the referee. It made not have been a Hall of Fame way to ride off into the sunset, but fellow former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current UFC Hall of Famer, Randy Couture, thinks Lesnar did enough during his finer moments to merit being eternally enshrined. Of course, he may have bit of a different perspective, having been on the receiving end of a one-sided Lesnar beating at UFC 91 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Nov. 15, 2008. Is "The Natural" right on this one -- is "The Brockness Monster" seriously Hall of Fame material?
