During UFC 223, the UFC Hall of Fame announced that Bruce Connal would be the first member of the Class of 2018. Connal will be inducted in the Contributors Wing, though this will be posthumous as he passed away at 61 unexpectedly this past March.
Connal might not be a name known to most fight fans but the longtime producer was one of the most beloved figures in the company. He had produces over 300 live UFC events for the company and he will join Jeff Blatnick, Bob Meyrowitz and Joe Silva in the Contributors Wing.
He will be inducted this summer during International Fight Week.
