Ring just got saved from an ass beating. Samman is going to get destroyed. This is long over due these two should have fought while they were on TUF.

Didn't Samman spend the entire season trying to avoid fighting Hall and now takes this one on short notice? He must have seen something in the Hall/Gastelman fight that makes him think he'll win.

I may have picked Ring over Hall but there's no way in hell I would pick Samman over Hall. *Queue first rd ko for Samman*

This fight should be decent, this was what many thought the TUF finale from last season would be. Not bad for short notice.

What I am most excited about is 10 fights scheduled to air on Fox Sports 1! I may be changing my tune regarding this new network...

That'd be tough.. I think if they bring him along at the right pace and not just throw him in with more experienced guys, he'll be fine. He's got a lot of potential

Hall will be fine he's a head case so we'll see but he'll be motivated by a guy that he doesn't like.

I thought Ring would of been a great upset bet to beat Hall, however Samman is a stand up fighter who is tailor made for Hall's power. Plus he came a cross as a douche on the show, killer spinning roundhouse and its goodnight Josh
