Video: Uriah Hall floors sparring partner with perfectly placed spinning kick to the body

Watch The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17's Uriah Hall drop his sparring partner during a training session with a nice spinning kick to the body seconds after "Prime Time" eats a high kick.

Uriah Hall is at it again.

Okay, it might not have the same "wow" factor that his spinning knockout (KO) win over Adam Cella during The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 17 had, but "Prime Time" put his creative striking on full display during a recent sparring session at Mark Munoz's Reign Training Center.

In the above clip (courtesy of Fight Hub TV), Hall and his training partner seem to be taking it lightly on one another, but the unidentified striker clips the Jamaican-born fighter with a nice high kick to the kisser.

Keeps those hands up!

A few seconds later, Uriah returns the favor, delivering a nice spinning kick to the body which forces his foe to drop to the floor in agony.

Payback's a bitch!

Hall, the favorite to win the six-figure UFC contract, failed to make a splash in his official Octagon debut, losing to dark horse Kelvin Gastelum via split decision at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale on April 13, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He'll have a second chance to make a good impression on both the UFC brass and fans alike when he steps into the Octagon to face Nick Ring at UFC on FOX Sports 1 on Aug. 17, 2013, which goes down from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

Note: Forward to 0:20 and 0:57 marks for the kicks.
