No, Uriah Hall isn’t leaving the UFC. Instead, the recent runner-up on The Ultimate Fighter is departing from the Tiger Schulman gym.

“Moving forward is the one thing I’m constantly focused on as most of you know I’m not with Tiger Schulman’s anymore never will I forget where I came from but I know exactly where I’m going so much could be said now especially to those who dislike me for my actions but I’ll let your thoughts consume you; if wanting to become better is selfish then that’s a road I’ll gladly take in the mist of my training i have gained the best traits any Tiger Schulmann student can get, from this experience I learned the importance of finding oneself I know people are still struggling with this and I’m ready for the next path.. that’s in front of me” “IF YOUR NOT THERE DURING MY STRUGGLE DONT EXPECT TO BE THERE DURING MY SUCCESS -will smith”

Hall lost to Kelvin Gastelum in the finals, as he entered as the heavy favorite after several highlight-reel knockouts.

Hall informed via text that he was “not interested” in discussing his plans and that he didn’t want to explain his reason for leaving.
