10 Sensational UFC Fights That You Can't Miss In September

10. Uriah Hall Vs. Antonio Carlos Junior - UFC Fight Night: Cerrone Vs. Gaethje

Despite being extremely talented, Uriah Hall hasn't always lived up to his potential inside the Octagon. In some fights, the middleweight has looked spectacular, knocking out opponents in a number of brutal ways. However, he can also be extremely frustrating in other matches, losing to opponents that aren't half as good as him.

How he'll deal with Antonio Carlos Junior - who is also hilariously referred to as Shoeface - will be extremely interesting to see. While Hall has incredibly powerful striking and could finish anyone at 185lb on a good day, his level of grappling doesn't quite match what he can do while standing.

That's not to say he's bad, but Carlos Junior is on a different level when it comes to the submission game. Prior to losing to the very tough Ian Heinisch, the Brazilian was on a crazy submission streak, finishing four opponents via rear naked choke. If Hall can keep this fight standing, then it could be another highlight reel finish for the Jamaican. However, if the fight goes to the floor, he could be tapping out extremely quickly.
