I guess Jon "Almost Won The Title" Dodson just doesn't count.

When Dodson fought for the title the only guy in that division who didn't almost win the title was Louis Gaudinot. So no.

I was more impressed with Hall in this fight than I was in his 2 excellent KOs. Has striking is first class, just hope he has good enough wrestling/bottom game to make it effective once he's in the UFC.

Hey he was a ref's call away from being champion due to the illegal knee (he had won the rounds), and he was like 30 seconds of action in rounds 3 or 5 from getting the decision.

He came closer to winning the big one than say Michael Bisping who still needs to win the fight leading up to the big one to get to fight he big one. Dodson was better than Benavidez and Dodson and is frankly in my eyes the highest ranked TUF winner in the UFC today.

People need to recognize Turtle power

Heh, same thing that I said. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Like I said, his knock out against Cella was beautiful, but he looked average up until it happened, and his fight against Bubba was too short to really enjoy. This fight against Andrews, he looked nearly flawless and utilized a lot more which led him to just pick Andrews apart the entire time. Best Uriah we've seen thus far for sure.

having a hard time following your argument here

looks like MMAths here

Dodson is impressive since he joined the UFC (so post TUF), I give you that.

But he's still got tons to prove and his division is still fairly shallow.

Griffin, Evans, Bisping, Diaz, all fought the who's who in their respective and respectable divisions, they're here since a while and they're still here.

Hall sure looks like he could pose a serious threat in the MW division, but the guys in MW are experienced against top level competition.

I'd love to see hall vs bisping tbh, raw talent vs experience
