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.”
