I'm just speechless watching his fights on TUF. It is like watching a combination of Silva/Jones out there. He has such a psychological edge on his opponents with the way he is finishing opponents.

His skillset along with Chael's tutelage makes this kid unstoppable.

Is anyone as fascinated by this fighter and his career as I am?

Absolutely, and his next match up someone who I feel may just be durable enough to strike and get inside so that we can see his ground game...should be interesting to say the least.

Insane talent, questionable long-term mindset in the sport.

Yeah, I agree. His mindset seems a little off and kinda makes me worry a little bit about whether or not he has the right mentality to keep fighting for x amount of years after now. Still, I love this kids talent and there are several match ups I already want to see him in after the show. He is my favorite to win at all. I don't know if I've ever seen a kid on TUF that was as obviously supremely talented as Uriah.

i think he has a big future. i think coaching and mentoring will be key to his success. i was more impressed with his first fight in the house (spin kick KO), the KO was cool but he showed he can do more than just kickbox, he had at least one TD in that fight and he stayed calm the entire time. the fight against bubba was too fast to make any kind of judgement. if anything it showed that bubba made a huge mistake rushing in on a dangerous puncher like Hall.

He's one of the few guys that have competed on tuf that will contend for the belt someday. He needs work in his wrestling though if he wants to compete with the upper tier mw's though, Chris Weidman killed him.

14 Contenders have come from the show in about 19/20 seasons?

And how many from those seasons didn't/won't? I think hotty's point still stands.

The post wasn't made to rattle the point. The point is in fact made clearer by the fact the show used to produce heavy draws and champions. I'm not bashing hot at all!

Back in the day being showcased on a good season and a couple of wins was all you needed. Dodson was exactly that (that and the fact the 125 divisions still growing

He looks great on the show and I'll watch his fights after the show with interest.

The two fights that I would eventually like to see him in to guage just how good he can become are rematches of his two losses. If he can beat Philipou and Weidman he's obviously a contender but I'm not sure he will be able to win the first of those matchups and I think Weidman will be a very difficult fight for him at any stage of his development. Unfortunately there is a question mark around every fighter until they have shown that they can handle an athletic wrestler who can take them out of their element.
