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."

It was a stupid comment, but I think he was playing on what Uriah said in Tuf house to Adam Cella. Phone Post

LOL at people still buying into the "6 figure contract."   What the UFC doesn't disclose is IF you keep winning, it's a 6 figure contract over 9 fights or around 3 years.  Yay!   $34K a year!!   However you'll never see the 4th fight if you lose the first 3, so it's really a $24- $36K contract.  And what's the difference between a TUF winner and loser?  $4K a fight?  If Uriah wins one KO of the night bonus he's now making more money than Kelvin.  However, he didn't get the sweet Harley though.

Good for Kelvin though....he seems like a good dude and always nice to see the underdog come out on top.


Yeah, they could all end up doing better than the initial TUF contract. It was a talented group.

Uriah's "hype train" hasn't been derailed. It never was a hype train. He crushed all of his opponents in devastating fashion. Kelvin is good, and brought a great gameplan.

It was a close fight, he'll be back. I can't wait to see him against someone he doesn't like.

Who could that be though? Seems like the sweetest guy in the world. Like JDS.

It will take a massive a-hole for Uriah to say a bad word about him. IMO. Chael might be the only guy who could have pissed him off, and that's not going to happen now because Uriah already got a look behind the curtain.

Uriah bought into his own hype, was comical to see him go in there with his hands down and stand against the cage like he has done something already or has that kind of skillset. I was intrigued by him, but he instantly made me not a fan. Was glad to see him lose maybe he will get a clue

Uriah knows how powerful he is. I can imagine him holding back on his friend and training partner, kelvin. Uriah was regretting all his previous knockouts, and he wasn't too close to bubba, cella, etc.

Respect to kelvin for taking it to Uriah, but I definitely saw Uriah not at top form. Phone Post 3.0

You know? As he was getting rocked and taken down in the first round I was thinking the same thing, "Hall is just trying to have some fun!"

That sort of mindset kinda makes me wish Dana would photoshop pictures of a fighter's opponent with his g/f or something so there's some more bad intentions in the fighters head going into the cage. lol

Urijah Faber and Scott had no problem fighting each other. Cerrone and Melvin same thing and Melvin got KOed IRCC. Every fight presents diferent mental challenges, you just have to prepare for them. 


I agree with you. I just hate it when some guys go into it without that kind of bad intention, considering the sport we're watching and all.

I've had to fight friends or people that I know in the past and I've always held back. I'm not saying this is what happened but it's possible.

Tharian - ...
Too much fun? What's that mean?
It's like too much money, there's no such thing
It's like a girl too pretty, with too much class
Being too lucky, a car too fast
No matter what they say I've done
I ain't never had too much fun

The UFC TUF "six figure contract" is like when you were in high school and a girl said she was going to have sex with you.

Then all she did was give you an awkward handjob in a spare bedroom at a house party before you resumed drinking Natural Light.

Yeah, you shot your load.

Yeah, it technically was a sexual act WITH a girl.

But it's not quite what you were led to believe when you were carrying that bitch's books and buying her dinner.

That's the TUF "six figure contract".

It's a contract. It's technically six figures but it's not the Porsche, big house, lingerie model type money you think it is. Phone Post

Well if you don't perform atleast you'll make a 100k, over 3 fights. If you do perform you will have unlimited potential sponsorship and other goodies. I'd need to see the list of tuf winners to see how things played out. This is the golden goose, you build on.
