Soon Uriah Hall will face Gegard Mousasi, what are your thoughts on this?
Thats a mismatch Gegard by murder
I admit defeat! Although i still think Gegard would win 8/10
Mousasi by decision.
Only way hall wins this is by a lucky spinning heel kick to the head! Other than that he has no chance!
Gegard by... domination i guess. Sad, i like Hall alot.
And the thread title cut off so perfectly.
A tip of the cap to you sir
Moose will wreck Hall. Moose isn't scared to engage, ever. And he's better in the ground.
Moose via TKO
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.
Too big of a step up for Hall imo
Would be surprised if Hall even makes it competitive based on his UFC performances.
Gegard RNC 1st round.
Geez, Uriah is god but let's not downplay Gegard's skills here.
I like both fighters. But Moose Knuckle will take it.
Typo. You got me, lol.
Moose is going to make this look easy. I expect a first round finish.
To be fair I had my own typo
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.
Great bump... tho I've had better bumps... if you know what I mean
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.
not sold on mousasi even a top 10 MW fighter, but he should be able to beat hall.
He was losing until he won. Classic Shertard logic.
props to him for stepping up to the plate on kinda short notice hope it pays off for him as something about Gergard rubs me the wrong way
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.
Uriah's gonna get slapped
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.
GM by sub.
I think it's a great fight to make. Fire Works can be expected. But like everyone i think Moose wins via Decision.
