Paul Heyman Compares Adding Brock Lesnar To UFC Hall Of Fame To That Of Charles ‘Mask’ Lewis’ Induction

Paul Heyman, a close friend and co-worker with Brock Lesnar, made some interesting comments recently when he said that Lesnar deserves to be inducted into the UFC’s Hall of Fame.

Heyman caught a lot of flack from the MMA world for his comments, so he tried to clarify them in an interview with Bleacher Report.

Charles Lewis – Mask – deserves to be in the UFC Hall of Fame, and he never competed in a single fight inside the Octagon. By that same criterion, if for not other reason than the fact UFC was dramatically changed by his participation, Brock Lesnar is a first ballot Hall of Fame inductee into the UFC Hall of Fame.

Heyman believes the honor is given out to those that make an impact on the sport, something Lesnar did in a short amount of time. Other members of the HOF include Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell and others.

The UFC Hall of Fame is about impact on the sport. It’s akin to Time Magazine’s Man of the Year. His numbers still can’t be touched (in terms of PPV buys).

So, does Lesnar deserve to be a future member of the UFC’s Hall of Fame?
