Wow. Just, wow. The roundhouse kick that Uriah Hall planted right on the side of Adam Cella’s head was one of the worst looking KO’s we’ve seen in a long time. The fight was aired during last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter 17.
Hall, who has already been impressing UFC brass, showed no hesitation. A mere :06-seconds into the match and he had already connected with the brutal kick. According to a tweet from UFC head Dana White, Cella was unconscious for a full four minutes.
Since we didn’t know a lot about Hall we did a little digging. According to Sportsmasher:
Uriah Hall is extremely talented. His kicks come from seemingly nowhere and have extreme power combined with excellent placement. He is not there yet. He is quick, but consistently drops his hands, and he will get caught if he does not improve his defense.
Damn right his kicks come out of nowhere.
Thankfully reports are coming in that Cella is in fact okay and has seemingly recovered nicely from the kick.

Before this season of “The Ultimate Fighter” started UFC President Dana White said that this season had the most brutal knockout he has ever seen in the UFC or an any other promotion. That’s a pretty big statement from a guy who has seen hundreds of knockouts so it was taken with a grain of salt.
After the knockout Hall became the most feared man in the competition according...
Is this the moment where we realize Rashad Evans is no longer at the top of the light heavyweight division, or is this the moment where the former champion turns himself around after an unprecedented two fight losing streak and decides he’s still hungry for this game of MMA. After making a reported $300,000 for [...]
Dana White might be critical of his performance, but that didn't stop the UFC from making Rashad Evans the highest paid fighter at UFC 156. In a losing effort Evans took home $300,000 (if he had won he would have earned another $210,000).
Here is the official fighter purse info for UFC 156, released from the Nevada Athletic Commission.

When former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture put pen to paper last week and joined the ranks of Spike TV, UFC President Dana White said he was happy.
Not happy as in "Good for him," happy as in "Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out."
As it turns out, the Las Vegas fight boss already...
If you've been watching The Ultimate Fighter 17 Sonnen vs. Jones then you've seen this crazy knock out.

Dana White said it was the craziest knock out he's seen in his fighting career. Check out the...
No fight team had more on the line at UFC 156 than the talented Blackzilians. The squad’s top two superstars were on display: Alistair Overeem (Pictured) returned from a nine-month steroid suspension would have earned a shot at Cain Velasquez’s heavyweight crown with a win over Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, while Rashad Evans could have found himself in a tango with middleweight...

When former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight champion Randy Couture signed a multi-year deal with Bellator MMA, UFC president Dana white was elated because that meant he never had to work with the Hall of Famer who, in Dana's words, "stops being a man when his big toes step out of the cage."

Between UFC president Dana White’s fight week video blogs, the UFC Countdown and Primetime shows, the organization has released some pretty solid behind-the-scenes footage in the past.
However, their latest piece featuring reigning featherweight king Jose Aldo (Pictured) prior to Saturday’s UFC 156 shootout with Frankie Edgar is quite compelling.
