Uriah Hall so bullied as teen he contemplated suicide
Bullying led UFC middleweight Uriah Hall to start martial arts, which eventually led to a career in mixed martial arts, but for the first time, Hall reveals to FOXSports.com that it got so bad he contemplated suicide.
“The bullying just got to a point where it's like, I gotta wake up tomorrow and look forward to this again?” said Hall. “I don't want to deal with this s—.”
“I just didn'??t want to do it anymore, man.”
Hall discussed an incident in which he was forced to flee a bus, bleeding.
“I got off the bus and I was about to kill this guy,” said Hall. “I was going to get a gun, get a knife and stab this dude.”
His youth influences Hall still. When he learned karate, he didn't want to hurt teammates.
“I would hit a guy hard and I'd be like, 'Are you alright, man? Sorry,'” Hall said.
And he never wants to do to his opponent in the cage what was done to him in his youth.
