WHAT A COMEBACK!! @UriahHallMMA drops Jotko, gets the finish in round 2!! WOW!! #UFCPittsburgh https://t.co/z4aoyT6PP22017-9-17 00:48:09
Most would have been knocked out cold then and there. Many more would have rolled over and taken the rear-naked-choke loss to escape the wave of punishment that came after. Not Hall, though.
OHHHH @JotkoMMA ROCKS Hall and has him hurt!! #UFCPittsburgh https://t.co/GklpWY1Mq92017-9-17 00:41:03
After escaping back to his feet in the waning seconds of the first frame, he answered the bell for the second and got right back to work. That resilience paid off in the form of a brutal comeback knockout win.
This was a much-needed victory for Primetime, who entered the night on a tough three-fight losing skid. Likely to jump back into the top 10 off this victory, it will be interesting to see if Hall can reassert himself as the offensive dynamo he was in 2015.
