He's not overrated. He's an exciting prospect and one of the best competitors to ever be showcased on TUF. And no one sees him as anything more - go read through that 'Chael dubs Hall a contender' thread if you need proof of this.

People like you are a problem. You frequently dismiss fighters, but you're the first to defend Anderson Silva's legacy. This despite Chael's being overrated, Weidman's being overrated, Okami's being overrated, and so forth. And here you are dismissing a guy who could well find his rhythm in the UFC before he's even entered the organization.

What's so bad about people being excited about Hall? No one is claiming that he's knocking at Anderson's door, but it's apparent to anyone with a set of eyes that he does have impressive striking and is fun to watch. Crapping all over someone because he's been mentioned in the same thread as Anderson Silva... great attitude. You must be a fun guy to watch fights with.

Funny that this vicious striker got dropped and finished by Weidman in his 3rd ever fight.

Hilarious. Fighters can tighten their games over the span of three years, and I don't know why people act as though Weidman is some scrub. Even if does lose to Anderson, that won't make him a bum.

Hall has looked like a vicious striker on TUF. But that doesn't mean anyone is saying he's ready to take on Anderson. I don't know why people are getting that impression. Weidman probably likes some of the techniques he's seen from Hall on the show and wants to learn a few... big deal.

I meant it as a compliment to Weidman who I think is a prodigy.

What are the odds on Weidmann pulling out because Hall knocks him out in training 3 day before the event?

Oh god, settle down. You are going on and on because I said Hall is overrated by the casual fan. You act like I wrote a book about it.

I certainly do have you on the edge without even trying. And it is hilarious.

Not sure how that's going to help him. Hall is absolutely nothing like Silva.

This, Hall is a dangerous striker but no where near the style of Silva.
