Anderson Silva's Final UFC Opponent Uriah Hall Once Knocked Out A Fighter With A Spinning Hook Kick

Anderson Silva's Final UFC Opponent Uriah Hall Once Knocked Out A Fighter With A Spinning Hook Kick

Anderson Silva's final UFC opponent Uriah Hall once knocked out a fighter with a brutal spinning hook kick in a move Dana White described as "one of the nastiest" he's ever seen.

Hall scored a devastating victory over Adam Cella on 'The Ultimate Fighter 17: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen' in 2013.

He stopped Cella in their contest in the first round with a spinning hook kick that immediately knocked him out cold.

A stunned White jumped out of his seat as the rest of the fighters looked on in disbelief as Cella remained on the canvas for a worryingly long time.

Jones' fighter received medical treatment before regaining consciousness. He eventually got back to his feet and embraced with Hall.
