Shamrock appeared on Spike TV's "MMA Uncensored Live," where he sought to set the record straight:

"Well, honestly, I didn't really care, but my wife was pretty pissed that I wasn't in the Hall of Fame. I don't care. I think it's awesome that Tito's in. He deserves to be in there. I believe I should be in the Hall of Fame, but it ain't my Hall of Fame. If they wanna put me in, that's great. It's not gonna keep me up at night."

"It's definitely personal between Dana and I. To further that, I've done everything I can possibly do for this sport. I hope that would include UFC. You know, Dana and I don't get along. I think he's a total douchebag and a bully. I just, I got no breath for him."

"Here's my thing. I did everything I could for the sport, from speaking to the commissions to presenting in front of cable companies -- anything and everything, I was hired to go do it. I was a great spokesman, and I believe in this sport. If they wanna put me in or not, it's totally up to them. I think it's just a big knuckle-fest. God bless Tito, and I'm real proud that he's made it."

Dana is your stereotypical Boston scumbag promoter. Also this sounds bitter, but not one fuck was given about being in the HoF by Shamrock. He knows it's all just politics.

Frank and Dana are both self-promoting attention whores.  It's no wonder that they don't get along.

I will (did) always enjoy Frank as a fighter, and he used to be one of my favorites to watch back in the day but he makes it really hard to like him at times. Not in this situation, I agree with him, but many other times...

Still much more likable than Dana, but as mentioned it's not hard to see why they don't get along. Phone Post

Good for Frank--who was voted by media as the best fighter of an entire decade.

The UFC Hall of Fame is frankly, not legitimate in any way.

It's a UFC Hall of Fame, not a MMA Hall of Fame. Frank only fought five times in the UFC. Think of other sports and how difficult it is for players to get in the HOF. As soon as someone retires in MMA/UFC, everyone wants to put them in it. I get there is an emotional connection to some fighters, but not everyone deserves to be in HOF. As others have said, there really is no set criteria or actual physical location for the UFC's HOF.

Some people just don't get it. It's 'The UFC HOF'. Therefore Dana, Frank and Lorenzo (possibly others) will make the call on who enters.

They will take everything into account, not just what the public sees/knows. Franks attitude towards Dana will no doubt have done him no favours.

Likewise Tito's attitude towards Dana will have done him no favours. That's where the similarity ends though. Tito was a Megastar for The UFC early doors, Frank wasn't. Tito's reign as champ was unprecedented, etc, etc.

There is no divine right to enter any HOF. If you make it, great. If you don't, tough shit. Phone Post

GTFO with your irrelevant "no divine right" jibber-jabber, you're the one that doesn't get it. If the UFC Hall of Fame is to legitimately stand for those who have contributed the most to the organization, and its most legendary fighters, Frank belongs. If its gonna be the legendary fighter-company man hall of fame...they can do whatever the hell they want and I doubt anyone will lose any sleep over it, but those in the know won't put much stock in it.

I don't put much stock in a promotional hall of fame anyway, but it would be nice if it felt legit...and if it doesn't, I suppose I'll enjoy the honoring of those who make it all the same as I'll enjoy seeing Dana called on the carpet for the BS.

Fact: he deserves to be in the HOF
Fact: it is personal between frank and dana
Fact: Frank is just as immature and egotistical as Dana

I think he should be but Frank comes off just like Dana with an ego, calling him names on tv etc, it makes him look like Dana.

Then he calls Dana a bully but goes on to say if he saw Dana in an alley alone with no fans, cameras, cops he would love it, basically he would beat the shit out of Dana.

Sorry but I disagree.

Frank's contributions to The UFC are not HOF worthy.

He is undoubtedly a MMA legend but he's not a UFC legend. I think you're a little too emotional regarding Frank to offer an objective assessment of the situation.

I'm not in any way trying to detract from Frank's MMA achievements merely putting them into context regarding The UFC HOF. Phone Post

Give me a break - he fought in the UFC a total of 5 times over a period of 2 years, he has no business in the hall of fame. Unless beating Tito grants someone an automatic pass into the HoF, there's no plausible way to argue for his inclusion.

Where is this UFC HOF? I have some vacation time saved up, and would like to take a drive out there.
