    nisezoom is making an argument, and a valid one at that. Just because it may be controversial doesn't make it trolling or out of line. You've been a member for less than a month. If you don't understand how this site works perhaps you should stay in Newbietown.

    Personally I think Evan Tanner should be inducted into the HoF posthumously, but we shouldn't gloss over his very real problems.

    What about his career warrants induction?
    Hopefully there will, at least, be some sort of recognition at upcoming events.

    I don't think he should be honored in the UFC hall of fame for dying.

    What next? Honoring Kalib Starnes for bicycling backward?

    He was fed to a number of opponents who were all supposed to beat him and he came through winning culminating in the Middleweight championship (I don't subscribe to the adage of "you're not a champion until you defend the title").

    guys ....what i try to do with this petition's not getting toushands of names and all... or REALLY getting Evan in HoF without any looks at what he was, good or bad. Its just that the guy was a true warrior and he helped made the sports what it is today and what it should be. Youngsters look at potential heros nowadays and finally go look at narutos comics or hip hop gangsta rap stars cause our poster boys in MMA are ( not all but ) just interested in the money, the wins over losses and being at cool partys with cool girls.....

    for a good amount of kids the image of heros still an be a positive ones. why not showing them a mixed martial arts fighter ( the "cool part" ) that puts behind him the superficial and tried to live by his own rules a better life. I see this like an strange mix between a slodier and a monk ...

    anyway..i tried to "use" his death to make the good and using the toughts and personnality of Tanner could be a gentle but still "warrior" enough way to put it all in a good positive image...

    I understand, thats why I said, "ok then". I thought that would validated my point of understanding the rules and regulations.

    Not trying to be a dick just letting you know that I understand.

    The only two people that fit this criteria, that he beat, are Baroni and Terrell (maybe Lawler).
    Tanner was a good fighter. Was he a great fighter? Probably not. Was he an innovator or big part of the sport early on or pivotal in the sport's recent growth? Probably not.

    He had an awesome beard versus Grove though.
