WATCH: UFC Vegas 33 headliner Uriah Hall TKO Anderson Silva
Uriah Hall, one half of Saturday night’s UFC Vegas 33 headliner, is on a roll and in the midst of his longest winning streak in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. That four-fight unbeaten run seemed to reach new heights midway through in his UFC Fight Night 181 main event bout with middleweight legend, and future UFC Hall-of-Famer, Anderson Silva.

The October 2020 matchup was not “Primetime’s” first headlining spot in the promotion, however, it was no doubt the most meaningful to date as he not only earned a technical knockout victory over the Brazilian mixed martial arts icon, but it was also Silva’s final bout inside the Octagon before he switched sports and became a boxer in 2021.
Following his win over Silva, Hall added another former UFC middleweight champion in Chris Weidman to his hit list. When he stopped the New York native in the first round of their UFC 261 bout with a devasting leg kick check. A defensive move that fractured Weidman’s leg on impact.
You can now rewatch the 36-year-old Hall’s (17-9) win over Silva before he returns again to the main event spotlight on July 31, at UFC Vegas 33. Where he will take on fellow top-15 middleweight talent Sean Strickland.
UFC Vegas takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The preliminary portion of the card begins at 6 pm ET, with the main card following at 9 pm ET. The entire event will be simulcast on both ESPN and ESPN+.Join the discussion on this topic...
