Uriah Hall to miss weigh-ins at UFC Fight Night 124 last week.
Uriah Hall was expected to square off against Vitor Belfort at last weekend’s UFC Fight Night 124 in St. Louis, MO. However, the former Ultimate Fighter contestant Hall never made it to the scale, and his fight with Belfort was pulled from the card.
As per Uriah Hall, the medical problems that happened last week were mostly due to ‘some issues’ he had ignored after an earlier injury. Hall did not go into farther detail about these issues or the past injury.
Uriah Hall further said the experience was on the verge of being life-threatening as he fainted on his way to the scales.
“For the record, I did make weight, I just failed to make it to the scale, which sucked,” Hall said on Instagram Live (via MMA Junkie). “I think I had a mini-seizure and at the same time a slight heart attack. My kidneys were just not good. The doctor even said, even if I made weight, I probably would’ve died the next day because my body wasn’t having it.”
After the event, UFC brass Dana White spoke of his displeasure regarding Hall wasn’t taking things seriously and alleged that the Hall was partying in Los Angeles the week before the event.
In his live cast, Uriah Hall denied White’s claims about the LA parties.
While Hall said that he now feels “almost back to normal,” had he continued the fight week process, his situation could have been even more frightful than it was.
Watch the Uriah Hall’s clarification.
Hall did not mention a timetable for his complete recovery or when he will be able to return to training. He hopes it’s sooner than later, though, and said he would still like to fight former champ Vitor Belfort sometime in future.
