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.”
- Modern era wing: fighters who debuted after the introduction of the unified rules.
- Pioneer era wing: fighters who debuted before the introduction of the unified rules.
- Contributors wing: persons or groups who contributed to the sport outside of the cage.
- 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.
