This Saturday, in the UFC 261, Chris Weidman broke his leg on the first kick he threw at Uriah Hall. Although that was an image that quickly went viral around the world, the victor’s way of acting also attracted attention. He behaved like a true gentleman, which he had shown before. Anyway, his sayings in the previous one already indicated how he could react.
Starting with his words, Hall dictated: “When I saw him in 2009, 2010, I remember looking at him and thinking, ‘I’d love to train with this guy.’ People were comparing me to him, I really didn’t know who he was at the time, and then I thought, ‘Wow, I guess I’m kind of similar in a way.’ I started looking at it, of course. I idolized him so much. I had a lot of respect for him because he made me feel like I was not alone.
I was cunning. I was creative and this creativity is something you must nurture. Of course, there was a part of my career where I forgot about that creativity because when you start listening to people, you start hearing these negative statements, things, comments or opinions that little by little you start to forget who you are. I think I’ve done that, if I’m really honest with myself, I chose to listen to others, “he said.
They know what they are up against
In addition, Uriah He commented, “You hear people saying all the time, ‘What Uriah is going to show up?’ I started to believe that. Like, oh shit, which Uriah is going to show up? But you have to understand how certain things happen dynamically. It’s like no one is really the best fighter in the world. He is the best fighter that day, that moment, that moment. And that’s what I love about MMA, because anyone can be defeated.
“A lot of times, whether it’s the media or other things that will change your principles, you look at the old-school ways of UFC, it was about honor and integrity and all that. It no longer exists, which I understand. You have to evolve with the game. So now trash talk is one thing. It’s a good thing because it sells, but it’s bad because, is it really you? I used to struggle with it because why do I have to be fake to be something I’m not? I don’t want to be fake. They taught me to be myself », he closed Uriah Hall.
