Finding people who are willing to face Hall has apparently been a problem for both Hall and the UFC, which is why Hall has started to call out some fighters for potential future bouts.
Never thought I’d have to go this route, but then again, I also never imagined a laundry list of ranked professional tough guys turning down a fight with a skinny, blinky kid from the suburbs... Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo are two people for whom courage won’t ever be an issue and it’s for that reason I have looked up to both since I first saw them compete years ago. Maybe one of them would be willing to step in to show everybody else how it’s done? Pick the time and place, boys. I’ll be there.----
Aldo was last seen in action at UFC 245, suffering a split decision loss to former WSOF Bantamweight Champion Marlon Moraes. Edgar last competed in the main event of UFC Fight Night Busan, suffering a first round TKO loss to Chan Sung Jung.
There has been no response yet from either Edgar or Aldo, plus neither have been booked for their next fights at this time.
