MMAHallofFame is currently under construction.

The first section that needs to be completely built out is the Judges Panel. Once built, the majority of Judges Panel members will be approached. The appearance of a name below does not indicate that they have agreed to be judges, although participation from several critical individuals has been secured.

We need unique content, perhaps three paragraphs in length, for each member. Budget for the text portion is $0, so I reaching out to the UG/OG/MMA community. Your byline and Twitter link will appear on the Judge's Profile page, and you will be a part of the sport's history.

If you want to participate, dibs a name or names by posting it below. Names in bold have been done, regular text means I need help. Send the content ideally within three or four days to Kirik@MMA.tv. Please add your twitter link, facebook, homepage, or other information you want on your byline. And please put MMA Hall of Fame in the message title.

Kirik, can you be more specific on "unique content"? Biography, why they are a fan favorite, noteworthy achievements? Three paragraphs is short, what are you specifically looking for? Phone Post

  Great question!

By unique content I meant, please don't cut n paste from somewhere.

The content should convey why the individual in question was asked to be a judge for the HoF - a little bio and a little noteworthy achievements. Would be the same content you might find on the about page of their site.

  Another great question - thank you!

Unique just means it is not a verbatim cut and paste. By no means does it require an interview.

I grabbed MMAHallofFame.com in the late 90s, and started it then, but did not follow through.

Was there a thread you did that started the interest up again?

Do they have to be factual?

If not, I hereby claim Ben Fowlkes.

I will piece together an enchanting tale of a mentally disabled and publicly ridiculed young man of questionable sexuality who beat the odds to become one of the best third-rate reporters MMA has ever seen!!!

If it has to be factual, I'm willing to change it so that it reads "second-rate".....

This sport is too young to have a hall of fame.

Especially in journalism, mma recieved very little coverage

This forum has been around for information alot longer than many of those journalism nominees.

Still evolving and not even 20 years old really...

Hall of fame stuff could wait imo. Phone Post
