Hall even actually fled from Elkins on celebration, which is when the boos began to truly get. Hall has actually typically been identified as a one-dimensional grappler who does more Imanari rolls than strikes, however Hall is puzzled as to where this story came from given that the statistics and truths inform a various story:

“You try to be as tricky as possible to deal with,” Hall informed MMA Junkie of his design. “My striking has really come along. I’ve cleanly outstruck every opponent I’ve fought. I don’t know why the narrative is different. Nobody wants to grapple with me, but we’ll see what happens when that changes.”

Hall did certainly outstrike Darren Elkins in the battle 40/31 with a greater performance and likewise dropped Elkins more than as soon as in the battle. As the MMA world has actually long given that found out about Elkins, he is rather the resilient character:


“Darren’s super tough,” Hall stated. “When I dropped him in the first, I was going to use the guillotine to get to something else. It had a bit more bite than I thought, so I stuck with it. I think with about 10 more seconds in the round, it would have been game over. Darren’s just tough as nails. Getting him out of there is not easy.”

Up next, Ryan Hall would enjoy to continue
riding his wave of favorable momentum by handling a fighter that can land him a
area in the top 10:

“Darren’s been in the top 10 or 15 for some time. He’s an unbelievably tough fighter,” Hall continued. “There’s a card in (Washington) D.C. at the end of the year that’s about five minutes away from my house. I’d be excited to be on that and I’d love to fight someone in the top 10.”
