Hall on the fight’s key moment

“It feels great to get my first win this year. I had a great camp at Fortis MMA. We went over some really specific game plans and stayed true to the work. I came out here with a really great support system and it was just about following through. I was really proud of myself for going out there and letting it all go.”

Hall on his move to Fortis MMA in Dallas

“Switching camps helped a lot. One of the things I loved about Fortis was that it was just about things inside the octagon. We went over everything that we as athletes have to deal with. We only have a certain amount of time in here, so it was about taking advantage of that and leaving a legacy behind.”

Hall on what he wants next

“Next for me is to rest up and not think too much for a bit. We’ll see what happens. Now it’s about climbing the rankings, seeing who is ahead of me and taking them out.”
