UFC Hall Of Fame To Grow In 2015

ufc hall of fame

Starting with the upcoming Class of 2015, the UFC Hall of Fame will consist of four separate wings for honorees.

There will be a modern era wing for fighters who made their pro MMA debut during the modern era, a pioneers era wing for those who debuted during the pioneers era, a contributors wing for those outside of active competition and a fight win for the greatest and most important bouts.

The upcoming class will be honored during the UFC Fan Expo in July in Las Vegas. Currently, there are 12 members in the hall of fame.

“The UFC Hall of Fame has an important job – it not only celebrates greatness but it helps pass stories of the greatest athletes and fights in UFC history on to the next generation of fight fans,” UFC president Dana White said. “We’re looking forward to announcing the class of 2015 and what is going to be a great induction event on July 11.”

Plans are also in the early stages for a physical UFC Hall of Fame to be constructed.
