Despite coming off a loss to Robert Whittaker at UFC 193, Hall is a dangerous opponent with four of his last five wins coming by TKO. Hall posted this video to his Instagram account of his training leading up to the fight with Silva that was captioned:
“My why is to be the best
My why is I’m afraid
My why is to do what I’m afraid of
My why is to be real
My why is for those who say it can’t be done
So why not !… .
I know my why do you. ! #ufc198”
Meanwhile, Silva is still looking to put together his first official win since 2012. Silva’s win over Nick Diaz in 2015 was later ruled a no contest after he tested positive for banned substances resulting in a one-year suspension. Silva is coming off a controversial loss to Michael Bisping at UFC Fight Night 84 and will look to get back to his winning ways on May 14th with a tough task ahead of him when he faces Hall at UFC 198.
