Hall of Fame

We are creating an Official Hall of Fame in 2017 in order to recognize the wealth of talented fighters that we’ve had pass through our cage doors throughout the years since our first fight on January 26, 2008, Operation Octagon 1. Please place your votes below for our Inaugural class of 15 fighters.
Our criteria for these first 30 candidates was based on: whether they went on to fight in the UFC or Bellator, have had success or won a title in the top 5 pro promotions on the East Coast and if they were multiple title holders for us. Meeting any or all of those criteria qualified them to be on the list. You may vote for more than one person but may only vote once per day. Results will be posted in March 2017.
We will also take a separate vote from fighters and coaches, as well as from media. There will also be Hall of Fame Committee selections. If you are a fighter, coach or media member you may click here to download the pdf so you can cast your vote. Fighters, coaches and media members get one vote each
All voting ends at Midnight on February 28, 2017. So that this doesn’t become a “popularity contest” and to prevent “ballot box stuffing” we will count votes by each voting category: fans, fighters, coaches, media and HOF Committee. Points will be assigned to fighters by the order they are selected in each category. In other words, even though a fighter may win the fan vote with 1,000+ votes and another fighter may win the coaches vote with 50 votes, they will have the same point value. This way fan votes can’t outweigh the other categories’ votes because they have more votes. Once totals have been counted we will notify all candidates whether they were in the top 15 or not. We will then invite the TOP 15 to sit cage side and induct them into our inaugural class at CageZilla 45 to be held on March 25, 2017 at Silver Eagle Group in Ashburn, VA. It will be followed by our Hall of Fame After-Party.
Anyone that would like to sponsor awards, the event, the after-party or get involved with this great event can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and congratulations to everyone that made the first ballot. For those that didn’t make it this year, we will take a vote again next year for our 2nd HOF class.
