    Are their only two? Hamill is notorious for that the GOAT to beat Jones. The only ones I know of is Askarov. For some reason he's not acknowledged for being deaf despite being the #1 contender at Flyweight. Is there any other dudes that are in the UFC and deaf?

    Iirc Askar Askarov is mostly deaf but still has partial hearing in one ear.

    Askarov is possibly the most underhyped fighter in the UFC considering he's an undefeated top contender

    You have Figgy and Moreno up there, Royval looks dangerous too although he lost to Moreno due shoulder dislocating. Askarov looks good, but those guys look very impressive and manage to get finish victories.

    Yelling is the only way for him to hear them ! I love this old sketch from SNL - they don't have a sign language interpreter, but they have someone helping the 'hard of hearing'
