Bold part arn't CONTEXT. Bold part are

Fair enough, it's true. I just threw his sickness in for the sake of it. It does have nothing to do with his HOF credentials.

No weaker than the UFC HW division ever was up till now. And two of Brock's title fight victories were against a guy who is already in the HOF plus a guy who you yourself say deserves to be in there.

If you're writing a history of the UFC, pretty much you can't do it without giving Brock his own chapter.

That's bullshit. Plenty of guys who don't give a **** about WWE playfighting tuned in to watch Brock in the UFC. I didn't give a shit about Brock in the WWE, or even know who he was. Neither did three of my friends, but we all got excited to see the cartoonishly enormous pro wrestling champion actually try to kick the ass of a top-level heavyweight fighter for real. That's exciting stuff for most guys, and you sure as hell don't need to care about pro wrestling to want to see it.

Headlined four out of the top-six selling PPVs in the sport's history, but he doesn't make the cut for the Hall of Fame. Who's the idiot?

Winning three title fights doesn't mean you "did something" in a sport?

All Brock did in his MMA career was use his popularity to get a title shot? He didn't justify his shot by winning it inside the distance, and then winning two more title fights by stoppage? Including avenging a previous loss to a former champion and future HOFer?

* I don't hate Melvin. I always like to see him on a card, and I have no ill-feeling towards the guy. He's an exciting fighter. But for some reason I love seeing him look incredible, then do something stupid, run into a big shot and get KOed or submitted.
