    He got outworked by the better boxer but he didn't give up.

    That was the most Uriah Hall fight.

    My point is, it wasn't a mental thing like he gave up or something. He tried.

    He just lost to the better fighter.

    It was actually nice to see him go out there and put in his best effort. It just wasn't enough.

    If there was a trophy for not giving up, Uriah would have gotten the second place trophy.

    I dont understand why he didn't kick more. Strickland is probably a top 5 guy. He puts on so much pressure.

    eez normal. Put all your money on Uriah by KO in his next fight.

    then he probably loses the one after that.

    Uriah's problem has never been quitting. It's been leaving 2nd gear.

    It's very rare when a quitter quits quiting.
    He made it to the Wizard of Oz it would seem.

    Yeah, now if Uriah had decided to do what he is best at - kicking - it might have been a more interesting fight.

    He let strickland dictate the whole bloody thing

    It was more like Sean took the fight.

    It's hard to get kicks off when a guy is on you the whole time. Plus Uriah landed a few good kicks but the rest were checked. Probably made him think "I don't wanna do that again" especially after the Weidman fight.

    He was trying. It's just that even when he turned it up, Sean was already at a higher gear.

    Plus Sean's defense is good. A lot of Uriah's strikes couldn't land clean on him.

    Is Hall the most consistently inconsistent fighter? he created a HUGE amount of hype with his TUF spinning kick KO, then ends up losing to Kelvin, no shame in that, beats Moussasi, beats Weidman, its been on and off for years.

    Hall had opportunities to throw kicks. And if he would just feint into kicks, or use his punches to set up kicks, then he might actually have some success.

    Uriah quit, Coach kept having to give him pep talks every time. Uriah didnt even want look at his coaches eyes. Like other guy said he stayed on 2nd gear and just cruised. While Sean was redlining, constantly pushing, mixing it up

    He broke mentally for sure. He consistently does this, can't really defend it at this point. Uriah is a good fighter, but it's too late to be a great fighter.

    Agree with this. Said it before the fight and have to agree after. Its like some fights he looks lost mentally.
