Kirik - 
FatBuddha - I also would like to request dibs on Yori Nakamura and Erik Paulson

Done - hoping you can do all five in a week??!?


Hi Kirik - thanks for what you wrote in the other message. Yes, I can get all 5 done if what you mean by a week is a week from today (so from today, wednesday that would be roughly the evening of Tuesday 1/15) and if 1 to 5 paragraphs are ok (i.e. some of them could be 2-3 paragraphs).

Do you want it in the form of a short biography of their mma related accomplishments or phrased as an argument (i.e. Royce Gracie should be in the mma.tv hall of fame for the following reasons...)?

Also, am I correct in understanding our name and website link goes by the bio? :)

Either way, I'll get it done for you, no worries.

btw Kirik: I don't know if these selections are finalized already, but I could write a 6th entry on Jigoro Kano for the pioneer era as he was the one who taught Mitsuyo Maeda who got the whole ball in motion.

Alpha Omega - Hey Kirik, I am a journalism student and would like an opportunity to practice my writing skills. PM me the guys that no one else wants to do and I will research them and write a quality piece on them.

Email sent - thank you, very much.

Tap In - Actually Barry Sanders was in the NFL 1989-1998, if you the 10 year rule were in the NFL, he wouldn't be in the HOF!

Just finished the BJ one, but I'm going to wait til tomorrow to send it because I always think of good stuff after I hit send.


Let me know if you like the BJ I give you, if so I'll do Forrest next

I am having difficulty following your line of reasoning. Sanders was drafted in 89, and elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004.

BrunoMcGyver - Would you consider having Melvin Manhoef as part of the list? He had his first MMA fight in 1995, and it can be argued that he has been a top staple in mma outside of the UFC.

If yes, then I would like to please dibs him. Thanks!

Thank you! Nomination being added now.

That would be very, very awesome.

Looking for a short bio that touches on the highlights of their career, but not an explicit argument for why they should be inducted.

Name of writer goes on profile, plus link to twitter or blog or webpage or whatever you want.

To the best of my knowledge, Jigoro Kano had no involvement in MMA, other than opposing it. This is no slight on Judo. Dan Gable for example has trained plenty of people that went on to have success in the sport, and wrestling is super important to MMA, but he had no significant involvement in the field, so would not be elegible. The Hall of Fame is explicitly designed to honor the people whose great efforts went towards further MMA, however named, and Kano, a great, great, great man, would not be on of those people.

Maybe next year there can be a category to honor people who are greats in the parent sports of MMA, and then he would be hugely elegible.

Rabid Bunyip -  Dibs on Tank Abbott Phone Post

If a name says DIBS before it on the list, and someone on the thread says they have dibsed it (or in this case, two people have) then it is dibsed already, and cannot be disbed.
