On the heels of the UFC announcing that Tito Ortiz will be inducted in to their promotional Hall of Fame, Frank Shamrock speaks out about the UFC’s hall of fame, taking a direct shot at its credibility, simply because he’s not in part of it.
Shamrock was being interviewed on Rebellion MMA Radio where he touched on the subject saying:
"I don't think the(UFC) Hall of Fame has any credibility unless I'm in it. I was the first champion ever and set two world records and I've been pioneering for this sport since before there was weight classes and gloves. So, it kind of looks to me like the whole hall of fame is, it's up to Dana's own jock as to who decide to go in and unfortunately that does not apply in a real sport, in a real sport it is completely different, so."
If Frank does want to be in the hall of fame, and obviously he does badly or he wouldn’t be whining about it, then his tactic’s leave a lot to be desired, by creating this argument in Public, he’s likely killed any chance of ever getting inducted purely because he’s not talking to the UFC heads directly and privately, If the UFC relents because of his public statements, it will make them look weak and that’s one thing I’m sure the Feritta’s and Dana White will not appreciate, and really it’s just not the right way to do things. Add Shamrock’s previous public spat with White about bullying last year, probably means he’ll never get inducted.
