His coach, Chael Sonnen, has called him an instant contender in the UFC’s middleweight division.
Uriah Hall, has made a global impression amongst MMA fans for his complete and utter dominance inside the cage of this seasons “Ultimate Fighter” reality series, however when asked by MMAFighting if he was ready for the big fight, he humbly declined.
“I was shocked, like ‘What? Give me time to build up!’ Sometimes as a coach, they will see things in you that you don’t see. Since he was my coach at that time, he saw that potential. Somewhere down the line, maybe it will happen, but it’s not something I’m pushing.
I feel, personally, this guy is a walking legend and if I ever get the opportunity one day, that’d be great. I’m not looking towards that, I’d rather earn my way up there, like the rest of the guys.”
