This is UFC's HOF:
Fighter ----- Date of Induction
Royce Gracie November 21, 2003 (UFC 45)
Ken Shamrock November 21, 2003 (UFC 45)
Dan Severn April 16, 2005 (UFC 52)
Randy Couture June 24, 2006 (The Ultimate Fighter: Team Ortiz vs. Team Shamrock Finale)
Mark Coleman March 1, 2008 (UFC 82)
Chuck Liddell July 11, 2009 (UFC 100)
Charles Lewis, Jr. July 11, 2009 (UFC 100)
Matt Hughes May 29, 2010 (UFC 114)
Tito Ortiz July 7, 2012 (UFC 148)
Forrest Griffin July 6, 2013 (UFC 162)
Stephan Bonnar July 6, 2013 (UFC 162)

Using this as a foundation what does your personal MMA HOF look like?  Also what does you overall MMA HOF look like.  Use any selection criteria you want and feel free to explain how you apply it.

I think the minimum is you have to have held either a UFC or Pride belt or won a tournament pre title days.

Why?  That seems like unneeded narrowing of the pool.

i think freak finds these discussions easier if all trace of subjectivity is removed from them.

half the fun of the hall of fame is arguing about why your guy should be in instead of the next blokes guy.

The HOF should mean something. There would still be subjectivity. Tim Sylvia still wouldn't get in.

I wouldn't put anyone in that was still actively fighting. For me they'd have to be retired for over a year.

I'd normally agree except for two reasons: Professional MMA as we know it is very young and the active guys I've listed are in no possible way going to erase what I consider to already be long established HoF credentials.
