"MMA Legend and former UFC and Strikeforce champion Frank Shamrock recently spoke with Rebellion MMA Radio hosts Mitch Ciccarelli and Bryan Levick for an in depth interview about his career and the state of MMA. Shamrock discusses his thoughts on professional boxing, the UFC Hall of Fame, his relationship with brother Ken and much more!"

I have to agree with him on this. The guy is a MMA pioneer and the first UFC Middle Weight (later named LHW) Champ among numerous other major accomplishemnts in MMA.

 Agreed

You cant pick and choose you're legends. They solidified through out the years by there body of work and accomplishments. Frank is one of those who has done more then enough for the sport, for the UFC to be considered a legend in MMA and in the UFC HOF.

One you start nitpicking and not including certain legends in you're HOF you're HOF becomes a sham. Which no offence it already is

It's so childish that the UFC ignores a big part of their history over a petty feud. Frank Shamrock ruled the UFC in the late 90s. Phone Post

No question HOF material.  Agree with the above that the UFC HOF loses legitimacy if they don't include people because of issues outside of their career/performance in the UFC.

I agree, but they can wait another 20 yrs. Stranger things in sports have happened than making a legend wait until they are 60 to get into a HOF.

Not a fan of his personality, and I think his commentating skills are atrocious. But his reign in the UFC was absolutely an important part of UFC history, and MMA history in general. Frank is a legend, bottom line.

LMAO @ the UFC hall of fame.


It should be called "Guys who fought in the UFC for a little while and Dana happens to like"


That hall of fame is a joke.

Agreed but he should try sounding like less of a douche getting his point across.

Him and Dana both like like stupid little kids everytime they open their mouths about each other.

 It all started when Dana's parents inexplicably gave their son a girl's name.

Inducting Frank into the Hall of Fame doesn't mean you have to like the guy, it just means that he accomplished something in this sport.

These grudges are the last hurdle of what I think will make Dana the perfect President.

Sometimes you have to do what's right instead of indulge pettitness.
