At UFC 148, the UFC Hall of Fame will open it's doors to welcome their ninth member: Tito Ortiz.
The Huntington Beach Bad Boy is a list-topping fighter, and he holds three major records inside the Octagon. No one else has ever defended the UFC Light-Heavyweight championship five times, let alone done it in consecutive bouts. Additionally, Ortiz will improve upon his record for most career fights in the UFC, as his battle with Forrest Griffin marks his 27th appearance.
Ortiz is also a member of the elite group of fighters who have collected the Fight Night Trifecta: Fight, Submission and Knockout of the Night. This unofficial honor is rare, as less than five men hold the distinction. Ortiz is the first man to enter the Hall of Fame with this accolade.
Although we could spend many an afternoon debating the merits of Ortiz, this article isn't about him. It is merely inspired by him. This is a look at 10 individuals who should be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.
