UFC Hall of Fame Induction Video

Over the weekend, two of MMA’s great warriors, Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar, were inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.  Griffin is a former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion who spent over 7 years competing against the UFC’s elite.  Bonnar, although never winning a title, also spent over 7 years in the UFC and rose to become one of the sport's most recognizable stars.

While there are plenty of UFC fighters with comparable accomplishments inside the Octagon, it is a single fight that largely defined Griffin and Bonnar’s careers.  The date was April 9th, 2005 and it was The Ultimate Fighter 1 Finale.  The UFC was not in good shape at this point, and it was questionable if they would even survive.  Griffin and Bonnar went to war that night in what is considered by Dana White himself to be the single most important fight in the history of the UFC.  If you haven’t seen this fight, go do so immediately.  It is the fight that put the UFC on the map, converting casual fans to hardcore MMA fanatics.

Check out the UFC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony below.  These two guys were absolute warriors.  Respect and best of luck to them in their future endeavors!
