8/10 is an estimate I made based on the skill level each has shown both in this fight and the others I've seen. Furthermore, it reflects the betting odds going into fight.

Kelvin basically fought as good as he possibly could have and Uriah fought dumb. I'm not trying to take anything away from Kelvin. He won. He is the Ultimate Fighter. Uriah's better and clearly has more potential going forward.
80% of the time he wins reflects the 3 to 1 favorite Hall was?

Interesting.

Interesting.
Hall was -350. Which converts to ~78%. Rounded to the nearest 10% it makes 80%.

Even if he was only -300, it's 75%.
