Eight men are currently members of the illustrious UFC Hall of Fame. Each and every one of them is up there for his own reasons, but the one thing that defines all of them is that they made an impact on the UFC and the sport of MMA.
Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock were the first ones inducted in 2003, based on what they did for the sport in its infancy, showing that even the technical fighters can beat the big guys.
Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, Matt Hughes, Mark Coleman, Dan Severn and Charles "Mask" Lewis (founder of Tapout) are all guys who achieved success for the majority of their careers.
What does the future hold for the UFC? What does the future hold for MMA in general? Those questions are currently being answered by guys that are taking the sport by storm.
Here is a list of fighters who have defined and currently are defining MMA, and thus should be locks to join the eight men listed above as UFC Hall of Famers.
