Hall: I was trying to have some fun


Talking to the media on Saturday, UFC President Dana White expressed he felt that Urijah Hall folded under the pressure and some media criticized him for 'show-boating'. Hall himself spoke to MMAJunkie about the fight and his so-called 'show-boating':

"I was trying to have some fun, man," he told MMAjunkie.com after the fight. "A big part of it was it was it was kind of hard, too. I trained with the guy, and I like him. It was kind of that emotion I was trying to get rid of, so it was kind of weird.

"Going in the ring, I was like, 'S---, here we go again.' That side just kind of got the best of me, but there's no excuse. Kelvin's a great guy. He's a tough kid. I think he's going to go really far in this sport, and I'm happy for him."

I absolutely agree. In this bizarro world where Hall was like "gee he's my friend and this job isn't worth our friendship", his opponent has stated many times that he left the friendship outside the cage. In the cage he hates everyone.So according to the other poster, Hall must be a sucker.

That's absolute horse shit. Everytime a guy loses to a bad style match-up and then crushes someone in his next fight, it means they were just holding back?

Been quite some time since I’ve really wanted a fighter to lose but there’s something about that Uriah that really makes me dislike him. Talented sure but strange, very strange man with a lot of hidden demons and very little respect for others.Thank you and Congrats Kelvin – winner of the best TUF series to date.
