UFC Quick Quote: Ronda Rousey kicked Uriah Hall's a** during TUF 17 appearance

While Team Sonnen's Kelvin Gastelum was filled with confidence due to the appearance of Ronda Rousey on The Ultimate Fighter 17, Uriah Hall was not feeling as good after a training session with "Rowdy," saying that the UFC women's bantamweight champion kicked his behind.

"I said to myself, ‘I can get out of this...Then she caught me and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this [expletive] is real...You can't grab her and if you do grab her, you're [expletive]...Thank God they didn't show that, because she totally kicked my ass,"

-- Uriah Hall, a middleweight standout on the current season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) reality show, talks to Marc Raimondi of the New York Post about his training session with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey on last Tuesday's (March 26, 2013) episode of the show. Hall's head coach and current light heavyweight No. 1 contender Chael Sonnen brought in "Rowdy" as a guest coach for his team and the Team Sonnen competitors got a few lessons from the Olympic bronze medalist. According to Hall, things didn't go all that well for him in said training sessions as the 28-year-old claims Rousey kicked his butt. Footage of Hall and Rousey training together was not aired due to the episode focusing on the first two quarterfinal bouts; however, from the sounds of it, that may have been a good thing for the New Yorker.
