USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings, Nov. 3: Where to place Uriah Hall?

Saturday night marked one of the finest nights in the career of Uriah Hall as he earned a fourth-round TKO over the legendary Anderson Silva in the main event of UFC on ESPN+ 39 in Las Vegas.

It was an impressive moment for the veteran middleweight, for sure. But it was also a victory over a 45-year old Silva, who has been on a protracted downward slide, not the 35-year old version who was considered by many the greatest fighter on the planet.

So what does that mean for Hall (16-9 MMA, 9-7 UFC) in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings? It’s enough to get you into the top 15, which is the precise spot Hall takes.

Hall wasn’t the only competitor to impress at 185 pounds on Saturday. Kevin Holland has sneakily put together a solid run. This time he earned a first-round verbal submission finish of Charlie Ontiveros. That’s enough to get “Big Mouth” into the middleweight honorable mentions.

That was far from the only consequential result of an interesting week of fights, which included both UFC on ESPN+ 39 and Bellator 250. To find out where your favorite — or least favorite — fighter is ranked, go to the drop-down menu above.
