    Even though we did not get to see him fight Costas Phillippou (whom I believe he would've beat) who is currently ranked 12 he put on an impressive victory this weekend against the rising Ron Stallings. He looked tremendous against Thiago Santos on a broken toe even.

    Who should he fight next? Of course we'd like to see him break the top 10 or at least top 15, which he could've well entered after this weekend.

    I believe good match ups for Primetime lie in:
    15 Brad Tavares - strong, good wrestling, solid hands
    12 Costas Phillippou - could still happen
    10 CB Dolloway - great wrestling, and new found striking
    9 Michael Bisping - Plz don't let this happen cuz Bisping would get hammered

    Fights I'd like to see but wont happen yet:
    7 Tim Kennedy - ultra strong & tough.....tight, solid....just kidding...
    5 Luke Rockhold - ohhh yeahhhh
    6 Yoel Romero - someone would be out-cold

    Thoughts?

    I think him and Samman would be fun but after 3 wins in a row he will probably get a ranked opponent like Costa.

    They should just remake the Phillipou fight. That win was more of a sideways step then a step forward.

    He called out Phillipou, and I think that fight still makes sense. Hall still hasn't really beaten anyone, so I don't think it's right to push him against Top 10 competition. I think Brad Tavares, Nate Marquardt, or Phillipou are solid choices to measure where he's at.

    Give him costas. Anyone in the top 8 would beat him right now. He has amazing talent but he needs to put it together. He would probably beat bisping though.

    Brad Tavares or Costas Philippou make the most sense

    When does Moose win? I had forgotten he wins seeing as all they do is put him in big fight after big fight so he can get slapped around all whole looking like he's being forced to sit through a 4th grade poetry contest.

    I wanted him to fight Clint Hester but after Hester's lost I doubt it will happen. Josh Samman seems like a possibility but I see him facing Costas.

    Id say the costa rematch. There is history there and stylistically its an excellent matchup. I think halls movement would give costa some issues. I do like the sound of a matchup with brad tavares as well. Once again its just fun stylistically.

    Philippou, and I hope Costas knocks him out cold, just for that comment he made, after faking to be a nice guy. Samman would also be good; everybody was expecting those two in the TUF finals.
