The Ultimate Fighter season 17 star Uriah Hall has been smashing his opponents throughout the competition delivering devastating knockouts to Adam Cella and Bubba McDaniel of Team Jones.
The knockout of Cella was one of the most spectacular knockouts we have ever seen in combat sports and the KO of McDaniel was impressive in it’s own right.
When Hall hit McDaniel initially, it didn’t look like a big shot, but McDaniel crumbled to the ground and was out cold.
McDaniel eventually made his way back to his feet once the fight was stopped, however he recalled nothing from the short fight and couldn’t see out of his eye.
After hearing what happened to McDaniel from the straight right that ended his run in the competition, it’s no surprise that he had trouble seeing.
Hall’s punch was so devastating that it broke McDaniel’s face (literally) in three different places.
As McDaniel explained:
“They say I have three breaks in my face,” related McDaniel. “The flooring of my orbital is broke, the shelf on the inside of my nose is broke, and something to do with the septum. Something like that… behind the workings of my nose is broken.”

There is no doubt that Hall is a serious contender not only to win TUF 17, but to make a run in the middleweight division after his official octagon debut. Hall is the real deal, and we expect to see a lot more from him going forward.
