In a highly-anticipated middleweight matchup in the UFC’s 185-pound division, No. 9-ranked Uriah Hall clashed with No. 10-ranked Derek Brunson in the co-main event of UFC Hidalgo earlier tonight (September 17, 2016).
From the opening horn the two men engaged in a clinch battle after Hall decided to close the distance early, however, Brunson landed a clean strike that sent Hall down to the canvas and Herb Dean decided he’d seen enough.
While the decision for Dean to call the contest was a controversial one, the fact remains that Brunson was declared the winner and will surely be on to bigger and better things in the interesting middleweight division.
