Atlanta Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins was dubbed “The Human Highlight Film” because of his endless SportsCenter-esque moments. Well, “The Ultimate Fighter 17″ contestant Uriah Hall (pictured) is submitting his résumé to steal the moniker.
In two TUF tournament bouts, Hall has unleashed devastating finishes that have left his opponents unconscious on the canvas. Bubba McDaniel was his latest victim.
While Tuesday’s knockout was vicious, it still doesn’t compare to his headhunting kick on Adam Cella in the tourney’s opening round.
With last night’s KO, Hall advances to the semifinals to meet Dylan Andrews. Josh Samman fights Kelvin Gastelum on the other end of the brackets.
Hall is the favorite to take the tournament and win a six-figure UFC contract. The middleweight is praying he won’t have to face anyone as nasty as UFC bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey en route to hoisting the trophy.
Hall owns a 7-2 professional mark. None of the TUF fights count on his record, outside of the show’s finale if he appears in it.

Just in case you missed it, here is what Hall did to Cella:

1. Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith controlled the game from the tip.

Bravo Melo! Dropping 50 points against any team is an elite and celebratory feat. Critics may want to belittle it because LeBron James nor Dwyane Wade played, but I loved it even more for that exact reason. The sight of James and Wade looking helpless and pissed while Melo went on a shooting spree, on their court...
