Thiago Santos meets Uriah Hall at UFC 175 and he is looking to finish.
“Since the fight starts on the feet, there’s a good chance of a knockout. We’ll see once we’re in the cage. It’s MMA, so it’s hard to predict, since either one of us can take the fight to the ground. Anything is possible in MMA.”
Thiago “Marreta” Santos (9-2) Has five knockouts, one submissions and three wins by decisions. While he has been knocked out once, submitted once.
“He (Hall) is certainly a dangerous athlete. I can’t take my eyes away for one second. He’s a striker like me. I’ll have to be very focused on every move he makes. I think it will be an exciting fight for the fans. We’re both motivated. It will be great fight.”
Uriah Hall (8-4) Has five knockouts, two submissions and one win by decision victories. He has been knocked out ice and lost by decision three times.
