Text and images for the MMAHallofFame.com Judges Panel are nearly complete, so now the project turns to generating content for the Nominees. If anyone wants to add their name (and links) to the history books by profiling a nominee, choose one or more of the names below, by "dibsing" it below.

Ideal submission is one to five paragraphs or so, that highlight why the figure deserves to be voted for. Please submit the piece by emailing to me at Kirik@MMA.tv within a week.

The effort is not designed to generate any significant revenue, so the budget for content is zero, but if you are a huge fan, could be a cool opportunity.

Last time through, a lot of people dibsed names but ended up being too busy to complete them, so please only dibs a name if you can complete it promptly.

Thatsjustlikeyouropinionman -  I think I'm gonna give it a shot, why not?

What exactly are you looking for, besides why they should be inducted? Do you want a background, bio type deal? Phone Post

Need one to maybe five paragraphs that explain why the figure is one of the greatest people in the history of the world's greatest sport. Background, bio stuff can definitely be appropriate.

I hope I have time. I'd like to try Tank. I interviewed him back in the day and he told me stories about crazy fights etc but come to think of it... I'm not sure if the picture I'd paint would be a very positive.

HAHA I remember he told me his favorite drink was "Stolli w/just a splash of cran... just enough so it turns pink" haha

Dibsed, thank you very much.
