Pros react after Uriah Hall TKO’s Anderson Silva at UFC Vegas 12

Uriah Hall, Anderson Silva

A highly anticipated middleweight bout between Anderson Silva and Uriah Hall headlined tonight’s UFC Vegas 12 event.

The former middleweight kingpin, Silva (34-10 MMA), was returning to action for the first time since UFC 237 in May of 2019, where he suffered a TKO loss to Jared Cannonier. ‘The Spider’ had gone just 1-4 over his past five Octagon appearances ahead of tonight’s event and had already confirmed that tonight’s bout would serve as his final fight with the UFC.

Meanwhile, Uriah Hall (15-9 MMA) had entered tonight’s UFC Vegas 12 main event with Anderson Silva on a two-fight win streak. In his most recent effort in September of 2019, ‘Primetime‘ had scored a split-decision victory over Antonio Carlos Junior.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 12 main event lived up to the hype as Anderson Silva and Uriah Hall engaged in a thrilling stand-up battle. ‘The Spider’ looked great in the opening couple of rounds but was eventually dropped by a right hand from Hall in round three. That seemed to turn the tide in favor of ‘Primetime’ who quickly earned a stoppage victory in round four.
