    This guy could be champ. And he’s on the early prelim that no one even knows how to watch.

    He rarely fights and has no name recognition.

    If early prelims manifested themselves in human form it would be Ryan Hall

    Late edit: So the question should be "Why is Ryan Hall AN early prelim?"

    I would argue he has decent name recognition, i don't think he deserves the early prelims.

    But I'm also bias, i like grappling

    Needs a signature win and more fights, the man isnt that interesting as a character but he doesnt fight often either.

    Lol the shrug.
    There's a guy who does work for our company who shrugs like that. Constantly. Doesn't matter the question, he shrugs. He'll shrug while giving you an answer. He shrugs at any social interaction. It drives me goddamn insane.

    Honestly no one really wants to watch the guy. And that’s not a knock on his skills which he’s an amazing grappler.

    Sure you got die hards who love him. But casual fans and regulars don’t care about a guy who fights once in a blue moon and isn’t that exciting.
    Plus he’s got the personality of a cardboard box for the media/promotional side

    Hall is good but he fights so rarely there’s no point in promoting him.
