Hall had a lot of hype surrounding him, some fans calling for the middleweight to challenge for the UFC Middleweight title after he ran through Gastelum, but the underdog who was picked last had other plans.

White gave his comments on the decision:

“The kid deserved the hype,” said White. “The question becomes, can you handle the pressure?
