He had 2 good knockouts in the house and in the 3rd fight (semi finals) the dude literally did nothing against hall in the 1st. When he finally took Hall down in the 2nd hall looked very poor. He finally started to punch because he didn't know how to finish a kimura, and the ozzy kept his head in the same spot to get hit.

I hope in the finals we get to see if he can hang on the ground. If he can, I'll be impressed and a fan.

I have a feeling he might be a Check Kongo, looks good but shouldn't be there. Or the opposite of Brock Lesnar, can wrassle but you punch him once and he crumbles.

The hype is a little strong but if he gets in some good training we've all seen vast improvements in guys over their TUF performances.

The bottom line is he shows promise. It means that the potential is there.

I think he is good, but I also think he had favorable matchups in the tournament.......So he could be over valued......I look forward to seeing him fight a very good ground fighter in the UFC.....That will answer some questions (for me anyways).

Definitely talented, but WAY overhyped based on his TUF performances.
Someone on a PC should hunt down his non-TUF fights and post them. Has he faced any decent guys apart from Chris and costa? Phone Post

Great standup, but I would like to see him against some good wrestlers, I actually think Kelvin has a great chance in this fight Sat if he can take Uriah down.

No, you're not the only one. Seems like a nice guy but this is a classic example of fans hyping someone so much I want to see them lose just to shut up the irritating fans.

I agree with wanting to see him against a top wrestler, but think he is pretty legit. I think the biggest thing Hall needs is the right coach to put him in the mindset that Chael did during TUF. We all saw how he is in his head too much and has some issues with confidence in general. The right camp will make this guy into a star. If I was him, would go train with Chael full time.

Been involved in wars, involving him showing heart, a chin, awesome grappling, cardio, or at least some incredible takedown defense.
Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT saying that hell never be champ, an awesome fighter, yada yada. Just that he is overhyped judging from what we saw on TUF. Phone Post

Fans aren't the source if the overhype - we've got Dana saying he's the scariest guy on TUF ever, while Sonnen says he's already good enough to beat everyone in the UFC MW division... Including Silva! Phone Post

THis has some truth. We haven't seen how he reacts under pressure or adversity.

No man I'm with ya ill pick a wrestler for a win any day. Not saying it's more exciting (because it isn't) but I think anyone who fights him will just pull a Guida for a UD. Phone Post 3.0

We'll see. He has a lot of attention right now and he's training with Chael. In short, there are many more people interested in his success now than ever before. He'll wrestling will catch-up

It's easy, but you have to abandon half guard. It's just like Mir vs noguiera. Phone Post

So he should have intentionally made his fights more difficult on just to prove how well rounded he is? Phone Post 3.0

Not on yet but thinking about it ...he has the tools ground game looks shaky at best so I think favorable matchmaking will need to be in order for at least his first 3-4 fights. His last fight before his "Test" should be somebody like sakara. I'd keep uriah away from a guy like court mcgee for a while who can they feed him??

I think he's very good and will be top 10, but based on what on what I've seen there's no way he beats guys like Okami, Weidman, Munoz etc. Guys that will take him down and keep him there and can avoid submissions and advance position. Phone Post
