    Only way hall wins this is by a lucky spinning heel kick to the head! Other than that he has no chance!

    Moose will wreck Hall. Moose isn't scared to engage, ever. And he's better in the ground.

    It was a mismatch until Gerard ducked into a well timed kick. Hall's athleticism and speed were his only advantages and it worked out. I still think Gerard wins that fight 8 out of 109 times. Still, good win for him. I hope he puts it all together.

    Would be surprised if Hall even makes it competitive based on his UFC performances.

    Gegard RNC 1st round.

    Moose is going to make this look easy. I expect a first round finish.

    I like this fight, GM seems to be putting in consistent performances, and Hall really needs to step it up.

    Hall does have ridiculous power he just seems to not enjoy engaging as much as others, I dont mean swing for the fences, I mean forward pressure jab, working way in linking combos. With GM he has a style that he never seems rushed or panicked, I find him infuriating to watch, but he has a very effective style and can really pick he shot or turn it up suddenly.

    Hoping that Hall uses this fight to go all in, force GM to have a bit of a stand up war.

    Realistically its probably going to be pawing at each other for a round or two then Hall gets taken down.

    This is the worst bump job ever... Hall got dominated in round 1 and landed a fluke spinning back kick to the face that was intended to be a body shot.

    He was losing until he won. Classic Shertard logic.

    I think most people would have agreed that Hall has the talent, but just doesn't put everything together. Particularly in the big moments.

    Mousasi has fought "down to the competition" in the past, before this fight.

    Of course I say this in retrospect -- I expected Mousasi to win too.

    Low risk high reward for Hall. Could be exactly what he needs to take the next step.

    New to MMA? This is a sport where the worse fighter can win. JDS KO'd Cain in round 1, but most people here are smart enough to realize that Cain would win that fight 4 out of 5 times because he is a nightmare matchup for JDS.

    By the same token, Uriah would obviously still be the underdog in a rematch.

    This would be true of normal fighters, but Uriah has a tendency to flop on big occasions - he never got a second date with J-lo, remember that.

    I personally can't stand him... He pretends to be be this poor nice boy that was bullied by big meanies, and then sets about throwing his weight around and running off at the mouth at intervals... He's trying to be a face, but he's really a heel inside. In other words he's as fake as Jon Jones but without the fun parts.

    I was thinking this to be very bad for Hall but actually their styles match up nicely.

    I think it's a great fight to make. Fire Works can be expected. But like everyone i think Moose wins via Decision.
