    Skill isn't the problem for him. He could be terrifying if he had the mental fortitude.

    He needs a fire lit under his **** that's for sure- it was a bit concerning watching him circle into those left hands as well

    Mental fortitude IS a skill and a big part of fighting.

    If you lump Mental fortitude in with skill- then I'd say he is at about a 4

    I've seen a video of this dude smashing his sparring partner with an unnessecary spinning back kick. He seems like a **** in the gym but then doesn't want to hurt anyone in the octogon.

    yeah I remember that. His sparring partner caught him flush so he launched a less than acceptable kick at him out of spite it seemed,

    Talent doesn't matter if you can't apply it when it counts. If that's how he performs against a previously cut, short-notice WW, then he should probably be released.

    Sucks though, he's wasting a lot of potential.

    you don't think Hall is skilled?

    i'm not saying he's a good fighter, i'm saying he HAS the skills
    He has the skills to do what??? Lose fights against undersized opponents???

    you're saying that it only takes skill to win? that the winner is always the most skilled fighter? that gameplan, focus, cardio etc has nothing to do with it?

    if so i quit arguing.
    If he can only apply his skills to cans on TUF then they're basically worthless.

    He looked great on Tuf cause he fought cans, i buyed the hype around him but so far he has been a huge let down. He just needs to get his mind right and stop giving so much bro love and start bashing some skulls in. Its 1 to not realy want to hurt your opponent but just do it cause bussiness is bussiness, but this guy looks like he wants to cuddle and give kisses all the time instead of fighting so far
    WAR 209 !

    agreed. his skills are worthless.

    this thread is about how useful his skills are, but how good they are.

    If they aren't useful then they aren't that good. Plenty of guys can look good shadow boxing and going hard against cans, but if these skills are never demonstrated against real competition then they might as well not exist.

    The 1 stands.

    It was a shame for him he didn't get that Samman fight, he hated Samman on TUF and I think fighting a guy he didn't like would have really helped him show some of the skills he showed on TUF. As soon as he becomes besties with his opponents he's screwed.

    He's a skilled fighter but he is mentally weak from the bullying he got when he was a kid.

    that's like saying a woman is not hot because she doesn't have sex bro
    Would you rather have a hot chick that you can't touch or a mediocre freak that does it all?

    Actually it's more like a hot chick with a banging body that only wears big sweaters and baggy pants. Yeah she still has the body, but she might as well be 300lbs if she never shows it off.

    I would rate him a 4 overall and that's only because he does have a decent skill set. If he can fix the mental aspect of it he would be a 7-8 easy!

    We all knew where his mind was at after he wheel kicked lil Adam Cella in the head. He was like "oh man, I didn't know I could hurt someone like that".... or whatever. My reply = "dude... you wheel kicked him in the head... what did you think would happen??"

    He's having a hard time realizing that its his JOB to take people apart. Do your JOB.

    Working the fryer at McDonalds is only a loss or two away. Hope he can get intense.

    You don't get weak from facing adversity in your life - you get stronger. You spoiled brat.

    Uriah is so strong that he has absolutely no fear in the octagon, he feels too comfortable and unthreatened, he's not afraid of getting hurt or anything, and so he has no urge to attack like his life depends on it.
