My prediction is that Teeters will never be HoF as long as Dana is around.

Yeah Tito for sure, I'm suprised based on his contribution to the UFC that he already hasn't been inducted. He defended the light heavy weight belt I think something like 6 times over 2 years which was a record for quite some time, he was you could say a pioneer into the popularisation of the UFC & MMA considering he was there pretty much right from the start. The fact that he beat Wanderlei Silva to win the title at a time that you could argue Silva was the most dangerous fighter in the world add's credit to his resume. He has has beaten and also lost to current hall of famers and MMA legends including 3 wins over Ken Shamrock. Sure you can't argue that someone deserves to be in the hall of fame just based on some matches but if you look at what Matt Hughes has done for the UFC it read's almost exactly the same as Tito's contribution so really he should get inducted next year as long as he doesn't decide to bash Jenna again lol. I think he even deserved to be entered in before Chuck to be honest, I like Chuck more as a person and fighter but if Ken Shamrock and Randy Couture get in largely based on the fact that they were the first real UFC champions surely Tito deserve the same respect. But really considering that Charles 'Mask' Lewis is in the UFC hall of fame and he wasn't even a fighter the whole concept doesn't seem that prestigious.
