UFC Restructures Hall of Fame

Kevin Iole writing for Yahoo Sports details changes to the UFC Hall of Fame.

In short, it will now be split into four new categories or “wings.”

  1. Modern era wing: fighters who debuted after the introduction of the unified rules.
  2. Pioneer era wing: fighters who debuted before the introduction of the unified rules.
  3. Contributors wing: persons or groups who contributed to the sport outside of the cage.
  4. Fight wing: a category to induct legendary fights rather than fighters.

Love these changes, and the attention being paid to improving the Hall of Fame.

The fight wing in particular sounds like a great idea, though I hope Pride FC fights are eligible – there’s quite a few from that promotion that belong.
