Default Paul Heyman backs Brock Lesnar as UFC Hall of Famer

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Quote:
Whether it's WWE or UFC, Paul Heyman believes Brock Lesnar (5-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) is a hall of famer.

Lesnar's four-year stint in MMA seemingly challenges the UFC Hall of Fame's undefined, intangible standards. It included three consecutive million pay-per-view buy rates (UFC 100, UFC 116 and UFC 121) with half of his eight career bouts having a UFC title at stake. It helped define the first UFC heavyweight to carry the "baddest man on the planet" moniker one adopted from a post-Mike Tyson boxing era.

Can a fighter be a hall of famer with fewer than 10 career outings? With a UFC record that's one loss short of the .500 mark?

Does Lesnar's name belong next to Ken Shamrock, Royce Gracie, Dan Severn, Randy Couture, Mark Coleman, Chuck Liddell, Matt Hughes, Tito Ortiz and TapouT founder Charles "Mask" Lewis Jr. for contributions to the sport? There is no question, insisted Heyman, Lesnar's on-air WWE representative and the co-author of Lesnar's autobiography, "Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination and Survival."

Since when did Heymans opinion matter outside of MMA? Paul was great for Pro Wrestling. And did a fantastic job with Brock in OVW/WWE. But Brock bound for the UFC HOF??! If 'fame' is the only criteria.....Hey ho..

I think fame may be the only criteria.

It's a meaningless distinction. It just means your picture is on a wall in the TUF house.

1) Hayman's opinion on MMA is pretty much as irrelevant as Scurla's or anyone's here.

2) If it's the UFC Hall of Fame, then Brock has got to be in there.

3) Because how are you going to have a UFC Hall of FAME, and not include by far the company's biggest star and most FAMOUS champion?

4) Out of the UFC's six biggest-selling PPV events, Brock has headlined four of them, including #1 and #2.

5) That means he's the biggest star in UFC history. That means he's in the UFC Hall of Fame. Don't know how anyone could really argue otherwise, to be honest.

Though if it was about some nonexistent MMA HOF, Brock should still qualify anyway.

That's a question to argue about, anyway.

But the UFC HOF? Brock's automatically in on the first ballot at the first opportunity. Not even a question.

Ridiculous. His only strength was his size and his wrestling. Other than that, he had shit and besides winning a title, didn't accomplish much at all.
