Do you just think that deserving fighters should be inducted on a chronological basis, or do you just think Marcel is clearly that much superior to Hill?

I thought Brian Mitchell's induction was way, way overdue, but I never thought Ricardo Lopez shouldn't be inducted until Mitchell was in, because Lopez was obviously deserving in his own right.
Chronological argument mate
