    Deceiving because of his generic name and appearance

    The best boxer in the division and has an excellent ground game too

    Also looks big for 185 despite coming up from WW; thick legs and good length

    Hall is trash after 5 minutes.

    He's good. I hope he gets fed to a top 5er.

    walks straight backwards with his chin up in the air. Hall should never be in a main event, beating him isn't impressive

    He's definitely a handful at MW, especially because he seems to have an endless gas tank at that weight compared to WW.
    He probably beats Till and Cannonier, maybe Vettori too if he can keep it standing. I'd watch any of those match ups to find out.

    Couldn't finish a hurt and tired Hall for the last 3 rounds.

    Nice jab but that's all I saw.

    Claaaaassic Sherdog. If Uriah KO's Strickland in the next 5 minutes, you'll make a thread about how Sean was never good.

    Did we watch the same fight? He looked mediocre in there. Top 10 fighter for sure, but Champion? Come off your high after this figh

    I would like to see him complete more takedowns since he likes to shoot
