"I saw half of it.  He’s a special striker, man.  He’s good.  That knockout was crazy, man.  I think the reason that he landed it was that the kid didn’t have a lot of experience, but he landed it.  It was a credit to him.  He’s a good striker.  I personally think he’s overrated.  People think that he’s like the next world champion.  I don’t think he’s all that yet, but I think he’s good though."

If hall sits on the cage again and try's to counter, his head might end up in the bleachers this time round. Howard's gonna have something else to prove being in Boston. But I sadly predict hall picks him apart from bell to bell. Phone Post 3.0

Man, I wanted to see John Howard back in the UFC (especially on the Boston card, since I live in Boston) but I'm also a big fan of Hall.  Don't want to see either of these guys lose.

I agree. Hall is very talented, but extremely overrated. I might be biased though because I don't really like hall. I just didn't like the way he came off on TUF. Phone Post

The size difference may be very hard for Howard to handle.

And even that's misleading in the greater context of his full quote. Phone Post

And even then you cut the part where he says he's still good.

If you have to say something that will make him possibly look bad, why say anything at all?
