After almost 17 years of competition, UFC middleweight Uriah Hall is stepping away from MMA.
Hall, currently ranked No. 12 in the division, explained his decision in a Wednesday post on his Instagram, thanking the fans, his team, and Dana White and the UFC for the opportunity to compete at the highest level.
Hall (17-11-0), 38, burst on the scene in 2013 on The Ultimate Fighter with spectacular knockouts, including one of Adam Cella that wowed fighters and fans alike. He made it to the finals but was upset by Kelvin Gastelum. Hall never competed for a title in the middleweight division, but did record some notable victories over former champions Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman, and future former Bellator champion Gegard Mousasi.
Hall currently trains out of Fortis MMA in Texas.
