Every blind squirrel finds a nut...thats what it looks like his spinning heel kick hightlight was. I'd like to think differet and maybe his last two fights were flukes...but its not looking like it. Zombie Leben via UD will send Hall packing his bags.

At first glance I thought this read Uriah Faber and my first reaction was that the UFC's losing its mind. Then I looked again and actually read the thread and article. Just a mind fart. That said, Hall should be let go if he loses.

Either man will be released
This will be a dog fight. I don't expect it going past first rd
I think leban will come out swinging and get clipped
Hall needs to stop playing it safe

I'm a little surprised the UFC released this info. They never say when they're going to cut someone or not before the fight.
It is a little obvious though, going 0-3 while not looking good will easily warrant a release.
Maybe they said it to light a fire under his ass, knowing your job will 100% be on the line in your next fight would motivate someone quite a bit. And maybe they want him to refrain from being so friendly to his opponents or whatever Dana was complaining about.

^That's what I'm thinking too. Dana is right on this one. Uriah Hall is a gifted fighter with the tools and athleticism. I think Hall could have won his last 2 fights if he stuck to his gameplan like he did on TUF.

Leben has been handed to Hall because the UFC dont want to release him. Its the perfect match up for him.

Something isn't there....he's fighting scared now and I'm real disappointed. It seems like he's suddenly afraid to hit people or afraid of getting hit.

Damn tough fight after dropping his first 2 UFC appearances.

Leben is still a tough mother fucker and Hall's style will play into his I think. Which sucks cause I really thought Hall looked awesome and wanted to see him grow in the UFC
