    Hello.

    As per the discussion this week on the forum i'm organising a hall of fame voted for by the forum beginning, here, with the Flyweights. If you have any general points to make about the process or think changes are needed, please don't post them in this thread, but rather the one linked below.

    This content is protected


    This is for any and all discussion surrounding technical issues relating to the process. In this thread, discussion is encouraged but should surround only the seven fighters to be inducted into the inaugural Classic Hall of Fame

    Please read the rules before posting.

    1 - You will nominate 7 flyweights from the provided list that you believe should be in the inaugural HoF.
    2 - The seven flyweights most often named will be inducted.
    3 - In the case of a tie, I'll call upon you all to vote again to settle the issue.
    4 - You are voting on the ENTIRE career of the fighters to hand. You are NOT just inducting them as flyweights - consider their whole career when voting.
    5 - Fighters must be retired on or before December 31st 1999 to be considered for the HoF.
    6 - You can alter your list right up until the closing date by editing the post with your list in it.

    Thank you for participating. It is your Hall of Fame so please do consider your votes carefully and take your time. The thread will be closed to new votes on October 7.

    Please try to keep your nomination posts reasonably simple, like mine.

    But feel free to post comment after, and comment on other nominations.

    Leaving ou Chartchai and Davies stung for me. But it should sting I guess.

    It's perfect. Having the dates is obviously totally optional but it's nice to have our first list of nominees.

    The only thing you got wrong is putting Betulio in there.

    :lol: I jest, he was a wonderful fighter. I love watching him still.

    With flyweight there’s really not too much overlap with other divisions - the best flyweights were usually just great flyweights.
