Uriah Hall Glad That ‘TUF’ Didn’t Show Footage of Him Getting Ass Kicked by Ronda Rousey

Uriah Hall‘s ferocity on TUF 17 has already resulted in a legendary head-kick knockout and an upcoming nervous breakdown for Bubba McDaniel. And yet in a straight grappling match, the 185-pounder was still out-gunned by UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey. Hall put his ego aside in an interview with the New York Post, and discussed what really happened the day Rousey visited the Ultimate Fighter set:

Hall, who fights at 185 pounds – 50 more than Rousey, underestimated the former judo Olympic medalist intitially. He found that to be a terrible mistake.

“I said to myself, ‘I can get out of this,’” Hall told The Post. “Then she caught me and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this [expletive] is real.’”

Hall, a Queens resident, said Rousey got him in two armbars while grappling – and he couldn’t get out. He compared it to rolling with an anaconda or a cat…”You can’t grab her and if you do grab her, you’re [expletive],” Hall said with a laugh…

That humbling experience on the show has led to a friendship with the women’s champion. Hall still doesn’t want that grappling footage getting out there, though. “Thank God they didn’t show that, because she totally kicked my ass,” Hall said, laughing.

Oh, I wouldn’t worry about it, Uriah — the UFC is pretty good about burying footage. Still, it shouldn’t surprise anybody that Ronda Rousey can dominate dudes on the mat, considering she’s been doing it her whole life. Hall’s quarterfinal matchup against Bubba is slated for tomorrow night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter, and oh man, is it going to be sweet.

When my snake bites, the welling lasts 9 months.

7 comments, 3 dick jokes, a spam and a partridge in a pear tree. Still nothing relevant. Gotta love it.

4 comments, 3 dick jokes, none of which have anything to do with the content of the article. I love this site.

Ronda never met a large snake she couldn't handle.

Am I the first one to dub the whole .9 thing as "Weight Gate"? I haven't seen anyone say it yet but somehow I seriously doubt it.

.9 dub sacks? Shady.

But it has no bones to break! Unlike my penis.

A really long arm, or, a reeeaaally long penis.
