***Competed profiles get a blue name for the author, and my undying thanks!***

Jacob 'Stitch' Duran, Megumi Yabushita, amd Rudimar Fedrigo are among the 27 profiles remaining for the MMAHallofFame.com nominee list. Over 300 are complete.

Do you want to write one? No professional experience is required, which is good, as the budget for the effort is $0.

Profiles are generally 2-5 paragraphs in length, but can be longer if you think that is merited. They should not explicitly make the case "Here is why X should be in the Hall of Fame," but rather should honor the figure, touching on the highlights of the individual's contributions to and achievements in MMA.

If any one is interested in doing a profile for one of the figures below, let me know in this thread. Copy would be emailed to Kirik@MMA.tv.

Complete list of remaining figures is below, and any can be dibsed. When you dibs a name, please add a target date of completion that works for you.

Kirik, I hope you get your writers for these profiles. Stitch in particular is a legendary cutman.

But since I know you will be checking on this thread....are you aware that editing posts when you are a black namer is an absolute nightmare? We have to erase and trim garbled HTML code any time we try to edit. Makes this forum a chore to use.

Just wanted to bring that to your attention in case you didn’t know about it.

Thanks for the heads up man! And apologies for your hassle. I will get this in front of someone smart.

I wish I had extra time. I could do well with a few of these remaining. Some of these go back many years.

While I don't have alot to contribute for the articles I can contribute to the effort by saying any contributions used should be credited with a free blue name and if they are already blue they could chose a member to make blue.

sweeten the pot up for what will surely be an amazing result. Phone Post 3.0

Free blue name for sure. Plus a link to twitter and webpages etc that should prove useful over time.

I am going to aim for Wednesday evening. It will probably be on the short side as I am not aware of his full history, but I have a few ideas on how to write a piece positively about him. Phone Post 3.0

Does that apply (Blue) for people who already contributed? Or just the ones who finish these up? Phone Post

I tried to give a blue name to every contributor, but probably forgot a bunch. If I missed anyone let me know. And if anyone wants another year by profiling a figure above, let me know!

Naughty Gorilla - Noone's dibbed Megumi yet? I'll do that.

Awesome!!!

And just a note: Megumi Fuji is not yet elegibile as she has less than 10 years professional experience. Megumi Yabushita does, and is the figure in question.
