    What is the deal with Dana and Uriah? The guy wins via tko and Dana doesn't want to give him any credit.

    Feels like more of Dana's mind games. Trying to spark a fire in fighters by putting them down.

    Dana been saying this about Uriah for years. In a way, Dana is right. You can never trust Uriah in a gun fight but i feel like he’s coming into his own now.

    Fuck it, if Whittaker doesn't want the title next let him fight Uriah. They had a close fight back in the day.

    Way better option than letting Rob kill off contenders.

    • Hall fought a horrible fight against Silva.
    • Hall can fight amazing fights when really pressured and pushed.
    • Silva is a counter-striker.
    • Hall is a counter-striker.

    Imho blame the match-makers for this abomination of a match-up.

    I guess he wanted Hall to put a clinic on Anderson so he gets to build his name, even if beat a washed up Silva.

    He's not wrong though. Hall is like kill or cower it's so weird. I just think he wants him to go for the kill nonstop. He would be a very good fight for Izzy but he needs to be a little more marketable

    Just Dana being Dana. He doesn't have much respect for people who aren't of benefit to him, like a lot of really reach people.

    I don't think Dana has an issue with Hall persae, he's simply calling it how he sees it. Hall's only been in the UFC for about 7 YEARS, I think Dana's allowed to make a read on someone whose been in his company for the better part of a Decade.

    Even Adesanya has said that Hall is somewhat mentally weak. He didn't say that word for word, but in regards to Costa he said he folds to the pressure his opponents put on him Mentally.

    The universe didn't give Hall a killer instinct for our protection.

    I hope a fighter fucks him up one day, he talk too much shit. He’s meant to promote them not put the fighters down.

    If I was Hall I'd be quite pissed about Dana talking shit about me for 5 years.

    Dana is upset his growing list of counter pressure fighters are not very exciting. Especially a lot of newer fighters. He probably noticed a trend that camps are training what fighters they can in primarily counter striking and counter pressure and he hates it. I don't blame him.

    They do this because it's effective and you need to do this in most divisions if you want to be champion or stay champion a long time. There are exceptions but those fighters won't last as long as champs because they rely more on athleticism which rapidly fades and they are more kill or be killed and are more likely to catch one on the chin.

    Most fighters also don't have the years it takes to properly counter this style so you end up with staring contests until one fighter over extends as Anderson did and get finished. It could very well have been Hall that ended up like that but he remained composed longer. Anderson got dropped exactly the way he used to drop people himself.

    You guys are going to see more staring matches in the years to come as it becomes harder for the matchmakers to avoid these matchups as camps churn out a legion of counter pressure fighters.

    While it is true that Hall is at times frustratingly gun-shy, Dana’s habit of criticising the fighters is petty and unprofessional.
