Not too long ago, former UFC middleweight Uriah Hall told combat sports media that Jake Paul “humiliate true athleteswith its pay-per-view (PPV) traveling circus featuring famous boxers and MMA washes.
And now, “Prime Time” is fighting on the undercard of “The Problem Child.”

The most interesting promotions carried out the official announcement Thursday.
“Le’Veon Bell, I hope you’re doing your best,” Hall said. “I know I will. Thanks to Most Valuable Promotions for this opportunity.
Hall retired from the UFC in August after losing back-to-back fights to Sean Strickland and Andre Muniz. As for Bell, he made a name for himself in combat sports circles for his violent knockout of compatriot Adrian Peterson last month.
“As soon as Most Valuable Promotions approached me about joining the Paul-Silva pay-per-view, I said to them, ‘I want in,’ and I didn’t care who the opponent was,” Bell said. “Uriah Hall is going to feel my punching power and kick like he’s submissive. He’s not built like me.
