    He's like the boring version of Ron Killings.

    Never heard of him but he is likely to get destroyed.

    Desparate to keep Hall on the card. Can't really expect much of a replacement at this point. Stallings has a job to do, and will be paid. Insert Takenori Sato, Christian Morecraft etc. jokes.

    Hespect to him taking a fight with Hall on a week's notice. Card would have been a bit thin if they lost this fight.

    Rooting for Stalling merely because his nickname is "The Choir Boy".

    I know. I wasn't expecting much, but I was hoping for someone just a little better than that. Oh well, it's better than scrapping the fight.

    Fairplay to him, lets just hope he doesn't suddenly get an injury and then hope for a UFC contract.

    Sucks but on this short of notice, take what we can get. Hall is still building and he's fucked up in the past so let him get some more confidence.

    Big opportunity for Stallings though, never know.

    How he did against Amagov wouldn't be all that bad approximation on how he could do against Hall.

    Unfortunately I probably haven't watched SF Challengers 17 because I can't recall that fight at all.

    Oh shit he's from MD.

    He also lost to Nover 12 years ago.

    to be fair the guys he's lost to lately aren't bums and it seems like he fought a 5 rounder in his previous outing... expecting Hall the favourite to win but this guy seems like a very acceptable replacement. it's probably a better match up than the guy that has submitted to strikes two times

    iirc Amagov gassed hard sometime in the second. its been a long time but i remember Stallings being able to neutralize him for the final 2 rounds.
