Sean Shelby’s Shoes: What’s next for Uriah Hall after UFC on ESPN+ 39 win?

(ALSO SEE: Sean Shelby’s Shoes: Will Anderson Silva really retire after UFC on ESPN+ 39 loss?)

In the biggest spot of his career on Saturday at UFC on ESPN+ 39, Uriah Hall came through victorious against Anderson Silva.

The first main event opportunity of Hall’s (16-9 MMA, 9-7 UFC) octagon tenure was a success, as he served as Silva’s (34-11 MMA, 17-7 UFC) retirement-fight foe in the middleweight headliner, which took place at UFC Apex in Las Vegas and streamed on ESPN+.

Although it looked early on like “The Spider” might catch Hall in his web, the more youthful and in-his-prime fight emerged on top, with Hall scoring a fourth-round TKO to improve his winning streak to three fights.

Beating Silva doesn’t carry the same cache as it used to, but it’s still a hugely meaningful accomplishment, and puts Hall in a spot for another big fight at 185 pounds.

What makes most sense for him, though? Watch the video above for thoughts and analysis on Hall’s future after UFC on ESPN+ 39.
