Uriah Hall will be cut in the UFC if he loses his next fight

Ultimate Fighter Season 17’s Uriah Hall is in for the most important fight of his life, a fight that he needs to win in order to keep his slot in the UFC.

Uriah Hall, a native of Jamaica, has been one of the most talked about fighter coming from the reality series. He has delivered several highlight reel knockouts in his stint in the TUF. His first round destruction of Adam Cella was dubbed by Dana White as the most brutal knockout in the entire history of the series.

Following his decision loss to Matt Brown at UFC on Versus 4, John Howard is now out of the UFC banner.

The 28-year-old UFC fighter – John Howard – announced in a video message last Monday that he was released by the promotion, following his unanimous decision loss to Matt Brown at UFC on Versus 4. His recent defeat marks his third consecutive loss.

“The rumors are true. I got released today. They finally announced it. … You get three straight losses in the UFC, and this is what happens. I’m not too mad about it. It’s whatever man. I tried my best. My last fight with Matt Brown, I didn’t think I lost, but when it goes to the judges, that’s what happens.

“My plan right now is to either go to Bellator or DREAM … or whoever makes the best offer, I’m going there. To UFC, Dana White, Joe Silva, thank you for the opportunity.”

Matt Brown gained the victory against John Howard at UFC Live 4 -- a win which saved his job.

The Sunday’s welterweight match-up is probably one of the most unforgettable fights for Matt Brown, as he beats up John Howard by unanimous decision.

Aiming hard for the title, the two players have performed a really great game. However, only one has the right to own the victory — and it seems that John Howard failed to do so. Albeit the event is not thrilling as expected, the UFC Live event last Sunday was already enough for Matt Brown to save his career. He hadn’t gained any victories after defeating James Wilkes in 2009.

“I just had fun. Mad props to Howard — what a f**king warrior he is”, Brown commented without promptly realizing that he just said these words on live television.

Meanwhile, John Howard is wondering if he would still get the chance to show off his skills inside the ring. The match had brought Matt Brown a record of 12-10, while 14-7 for John Howard.
