    Lesnar should definitely not be in the HOF.

    • Jaedr says:

      He’s the only man ever to win a UFC title with only a few fights under his belt, he defended it twice, and brought in more $$ than anyone else. the HOF is just a record book, he deserves a spot in the book based on what he’s done.

      • James says:

        He’s the only man to get handed a title shot after only a few fights. He won 1 fight against a no name guy.Went to to the UFC, lost his debut, was handed a lower quality fighter at the end of his career, won. Received a title fight somehow. He then beat a much older opponent whom he out weighed by 50 pounds. The UFC pushed this guy so freaking hard on us and he never was that impressive. His best win was against Carwin whom I believe would win in a rematch. Brock also came across as being totally unsportsmanlike and a serious dick. All that being said though, if he had started earlier in life he would be something special.

      • Jujitsu Player says:

        No he really doesn’t. He just came into the UFC at a time when the HW division was at its weakest. His performances against Cain and Overeem were embarrassing. I’ve never seen a 265lb man cower like that before….

  2. Ronnin says:

    Lesnar? who the fuck is that? awww the guy with the 5-3… GTFO!

  3. Wes says:

    I for one liked to watch all of lesanr’s fight but his last performance was horrid. It was sad to watch it to say the least. I agree he accomplished allot and brought allot to the sport but with a 5-3 record he should not be in the UFCHOF. Im sorry Randy I dont agree.

  4. Lol says:

    Wtf?? Lmao hell no. If he gets hall of fame then so should tim silva and andre arlivskis weak asses. Hahaha hell no randy

  5. Kingpwc says:

    He should be…becuz like it or not ..he brought more attention(fan wise) his short career..which helped UFC get to the next level..of business…the fighters kno this..the suits kno this…Dana knos this…Brock knows this…it’s those who are true fans if the sport kno this..u have to look at the overall picture…& overall …brock deserves & will be in the hall of fame….like it or not..he is the most polarizing figure to date to be in mma

    • Xaninho says:

      That’s where you’re wrong. Real fans don’t give a fuck about business. Real fans don’t give a fuck about the casual WWE fans Lesnar brought with him.

      Real fans care about fighters with true skills who proved themselves.

      BJ Penn isn’t in the hall of fame and he held belts in two different weight classes. Anderson Silva the P4P fighter isn’t there.

      Why should a pro-wrestler with a record of 5-3 defended the belt barely twice( If Carwin didn’t gas it would be only once).

      Adding Brock Lesnar would make a joke out of the Hall Of Fame if you ask me.

      • rlm says:

        Silva and BJ aren’t in the hof…yet.

      • Donnybrook says:

        Agreed 100%!

      • D-yan says:

        what is it with some of you guys and being a ‘real’ fan or a fake fan or a ‘noob’ or whetever. this is like the tenth comment on that. this isn’t world of warcraft if you like fighting and you watch the fights, your a fan. do you really think your somehow more of a fan than than the other guy? well your not.

        • That Guy says:

          I absolutely agree brotha. I consider myself a Knowledgeable fan in that I understand the true technique that goes into fighting. I train in MMA and fight at the amateur level so I understand much more about what im seeing than the average fan but I in no way believe that that makes me any MORE of a fan then the next guy. Too many people out there take this shit too seriously. If you enjoy watching the fights, be a fan and watch the fights. Stop ignorantly judging others because they dont know which side to throw out a hip on a Kimora or how to properly throw a muai Thai kick.

        • Xaninho says:

          Read Kingpwc ‘s comment first, then you’ll understand why I used the phrase ‘real fan’.

          You’ve just wasted time attacking me for my comment.

    • Lol says:

      Kingpwc you are a dumb ass. This os not a beauty contest or a popularity contest. This is the hall of fame dumb fuck. Omg you are a dumb fuck. Hall of fame are only for legends not how many seats you can sell. Omg dont reply any more on HOF bc you dont know what it stands for idiot. Brock sucks. He got further than where he should of for being big just like bobb sapp vs ernesto hoost!!

  6. Clay says:

    Brock was a beast before his surgery

  7. James says:

    itz hrd too tak yor rgumnt srslee wen u hav sch bad gramr

    • The natural says:

      Why the fuck are u everybody so worried about spelling and grammar on this site 90% of these people with these prob don’t give a shit about u and there typing from there cell phone witch u get what there saying and understand what u meant u get a point across if ur the dumbass that doesn’t understand it then maybe u shld get of site and become an English teacher faget get over yourself this is a fight site not a grammar and spell chack school u keyboard warrior no Brock is no hof

      • James says:

        90% of the people on this site seem like they either failed primary school or are still currently enrolled in it. I think you were trying to say at the end that Brock should not be in the HOF. If that is the case, then we agree. You also correct about my being a “keyboard warrior” and english teachers being “fagets”.

        • Clay says:

          If I was getting graded on this I would actually put time and effort in it. But who cares. I’m not trying to get a job on this cite, so I’m not going to have a heart attack worrying about grammar

  8. Diaz Duuh! says:

    comming from the best of the best randy couture, yup brock belongs there. Stop hating

  9. Train the trainer says:

    Its what he did in the short time he did in thats impressive. Randy has a pretty bad record and so does Mark Hunt but they are legends of the sport. Records share apart of the story but only a small chapter in a great novel.

    • E says:

      i agree with this. i fkn hate that wwe shit but brock proved himself defeating seasoned mma fighters. true hes not a technical martial artist, but he adapted to the game, and learned some technique. my fav fight of his is when he subbed carwin, after almost getting ktfo.

      he may not be hof worthy, but he did accomplish something that not to many people can say they’ve done themselves. he became champion within a short period of time. and please dont tell me that he had a size advantage. although that is obvious, all the HW’s are big mother fuckers. they should be able to hold their own.

  10. Runem says:

    He should not be in the hall of fame, he got a free title shot and granted he did win it and won against a couple of legit guys, that’s not enough. And especially for a hall of fame, come one, HOF should be taken seriously, you can’t just toss anybody in there. Especially if they are not good fighters

  11. joegun says:

    He should get in for what he did in the time he did it..his accomplishments and quality of opponents..he handled the best and got beat by the some of the best..and was the first fake wrestler to be legit in mma…I was never a big fan of him but I think he deserves it for what he did and not necessarily because of his fights or fight style.

  12. joegun says:

    Like in baseball,nba,and the nfl..sometimes they put guys in on accomplishments and what impact they had in the era of their respected sport…not exactly because they dominated their position or set all records in their sport. Cal ripken jr. Wasn’t exactly a superior athlete either his numbers are average and he played on a bad team his entire career but what it was for him was his ironman streak of the 2000 plus games he played consecutively that got him in the hof…not his homerun skills or glove… just a thought…Mir is also gonna get in along with bi,gsp,anderson,Tito,and many more to come.

  13. E says:

    people gotta recognize and show some fkn respect

  14. Furby8704 says:

    Hall of Fame is business decision…he will be in the HOF regardless of what fans think lol

  15. joegun says:

    Who does the selection in the ufc?? Is their a board of directors or is dana and the fertittas? Like in other sports I think its the sportswriters that vote them in.

  16. HOF Indeed says:

    lets say this “Unknown” mma fighter with no background just hype came into the middleweight division and was given a title shot right away and actually did what nobody could do and defeated the Spider Silva…then he retires with that 1 win..I would give him HOF just for doing it lol

  17. Donnybrook says:

    Apparently I don’t live in the right country to view the video… but going by the head line I’m thinking Randy’s on the pipe.

  18. there is no fuckin way he deserves to be in the hof! 5-3 and he beat an old randy and a gassed carwin who destroyed him in the first and he beat frank mir who fights like an arrogant fool. Dont give a fuck how many fans he might have brought with him. the hof is about being the best fighter not fuckin promoter. he had a shitty wrestler attitude and took beatings in his last 3 fights. if he gets in then anyone else that is in there has instantly had all their hard work and dedication be made into a joke. lesnar has no mma skill. only an awesome wrestler.

  19. o and wow he won a title but this fucker was basically handed it.

  20. jake says:

    The UFC HOF is a joke anyways.
