An Ultimate Fighter reality show alum member, Uriah Hall has fought for the UFC since 2013 and has had mixed results. Sporting possibly the greatest knockout in the history of the television show, Hall has gone 8-7 since joining the promotion – with his biggest struggle coming in the form of a three-fight losing streak against top names Robert Whittaker, Gegard Mousasi, and Derek Brunson. However, since his 2018 loss to Paulo Costa, Hall has seemed to be finding his stride. With some training camp adjustments, Uriah Hall now finds himself on a two-fight winning streak. At UFC 232, Hall knocked out Bevon Lewis, and, most recently, was on the winning side of a split-decision against Antonio Carlos Junior last September. He has yet to fight this year.
Hall and Silva were originally set to face each other back in 2016 but an injury to Anderson Silva forced the former champion to pull out of the fight, needing surgery.
Hall, born in Jamaica and 36-years-old, stands at an even 6 ft. and has a reach of 79.5 inches. He has been training out of New York with Fortis MMA since 2019 and has been fighting professionally since 2005. He holds a second-degree black belt in Kyokushin karate under Tiger Schulmann and a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Jason Manly. The striking expert currently ranks as the UFC’s tenth-best middleweight.
There is no denying the credentials of Anderson Silva. The former middleweight champion is often considered the greatest middleweight of all time and is constantly in the mix when it comes to debating the sport’s greatest fighter of all time. He held the middleweight title from 2006 all the way to 2013.
However, some argue that he has held on too long. That he is past his prime. His last several fights have not been kind to “The Spider” as he is just 1-6 with one no-contest across his past eight fights. The lone win during that stretch was a unanimous decision win over Derek Brunson in 2017. Since then, he has lost two in a row against Israel Adesanya and Jared Cannonier.
At 45-years-old, the Brazilian fighter has been fighting professionally since 1997. He will have a two-inch height advantage over his opponent Saturday night but will be at a two-inch disadvantage when it comes to reaching. The southpaw fighter has trained with many gyms over the years and is currently working with Killer Bees Muay Thai College. He boasts a black prajied in muay thai, a yellow rope in capoeira, a third-degree black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Antonio Nogueira, and a fifth dan black belt in taekwondo. Despite his accolades, Anderson Silva is currently unranked in the UFC middleweight division.
Bryce Mitchell was on the Ultimate Fighter: Undefeated season in which all participants came into the show as undefeated prospects. He won. Now 13-0, Mitchell has fought for the UFC since 2018 and has won three straight since his appearance on the show. He’s also only one of two UFC fighters to have a submission win via a twister, which won him the submission of the year award. His most recent performance came this past May at UFC 249. Mitchell took on Charles Rosa and defeated him via unanimous decision.
The 26-year-old American stands at 5 ft. 9 in. tall and has a reach of 70 inches. Fighting since 2015, he currently trains with Westside MMA and holds a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He rounds out the top-15 on the UFC featherweight rankings.
A UFC mainstay since 2013, Andre Fili has already fought twice in 2020, going 1-1. His first fight of the year was a unanimous decision loss to Sodiq Yusuff at UFC 246. He bounced back this past June, however, when he earned a split-decision victory over Charles Jourdain. He has traded wins and losses for most of his UFC career but does hold a “notable” win over Artem Lobov.
At 30-years-old, The American-born fighter has been fighting since 2009, spending the entirety of his career training out of California with Team Alpha Male. He will stand two-inches taller than his opponent Saturday night and will have a notable four-inch reach advantage. He enters the cage Saturday as an unranked fighter.
Maurice Greene is another fighter on the card who won his season of the Ultimate Fighter. After his win, Greene won two fights in a row before dropping his next two. The two losses sparked something in Greene who went on to change the gym in which he trains. His last fight took place earlier this year in June, where he submitted Gian Villante with a third-round arm-triangle choke.
Standing at 6 ft. 7 in. tall, Maurice Greene possesses a reach of 82 inches. He now trains at the Jackson-Wink MMA gym with the likes of light heavyweight great Jon “Bones” Jones. He trains under his head coach Brock Larson, whom he has a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He has been fighting since 2012. The 34-year-old is currently unranked in the heavyweight division.
Greg Hardy’s MMA career has been quite a rollercoaster thus far. His debut was spoiled by a DQ loss due to an illegal knee and he had a win overturned into a no-contest after he used an inhaler between rounds. Still, the former NFL star is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Yorgan De Castro this past May at UFC 249.
Hardy will be at a two-inch disadvantage against Greene in both heights and reach this Saturday night. Hardy trains in Florida with American Top Team and has been doing so since he started fighting in 2017. Like his opponent, Hardy has yet to crack into the division’s top-15.
Kevin Holland has been a man of streaks since joining the UFC. After losing his promotional debut, Holland went on to win three fights in a row. The streak was snapped in 2019 by Brendan Allen but Holland would bounce back by winning another three straight, including his most recent victory against Darren Stewart, which came just over one month ago via split-decision.
The 27-year-old stands at 6 ft. 3 in. tall and has a reach of 81 inches. Pretty big for a middleweight. Fighting since 2015, he currently trains out of Texas with the Phalanx MMA Academy as well as with Travis Lutter BJJ. He holds a second-degree black belt in Kung Fu and a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Lutter. He is currently unranked by the UFC.
If you like to bet on underdogs then this is your dream fight, as Charlie Ontiveros comes in at a +475 versus Kevin Hollands -715 at the time of writing. Ontiveros will be making his UFC debut Saturday night and is a last-minute replacement for Makhmud Muradov who was, in turn, a replacement for Krzysztof Jotko. He enters the octagon on a two-fight winning streak with the Fury FC promotion.
Born in the United States, Ontiveros will stand one-inch shorter than Holland and will be at a significant five-inch reach disadvantage. Known for a karate style, he currently trains out of Texas with the W4R Training Center.
UFC fight Bobby Green has made it no secret that he’s looking to fight as much as possible in 2020, hoping to set records. This Saturday night will mark his fourth octagon appearance in five months. More impressively is that the quick turnarounds seem to be working for Green, as he has won all three of his fights thus far in 2020. He has defeated Clay Guida, Lando Vannata, and Alan Patrick – all by unanimous decision with the Lando Vannata fight earning him a fight of the night bonus.
The 34-year-old American fighter stands at 5 ft. 10 in. tall and has a reach of 71 inches. Training out of California with Pinnacle MMA, Green currently holds a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Fighting since 2008, Green has been with the UFC since 2013.
Thiago Moises has gone 2-2 in the UFC since performing on the Contender Series. His first three fights all went to decision but his most recent fight, taking place this past May, was his best performance to date. Moises submitted Michael Johnson junt 20-seconds into the second round of their fight with the not-often-seen Achilles lock.
At just 25-years-old, the Brazilian fighter will stand one-inch shorter than Green and will be at just a half-inch reach disadvantage. The southpaw fighter currently trains out of Florida with American Top Team. He has been fighting since 2012 and holds a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Paulo Streckert.
