According to a Feb. 8 report from Fightland, Adam Cella, the victim of one of the most brutal knockouts in UFC history, wasn't overly impressed by Uriah Hall's epic spinning back kick that landed flush on the TUF star's jaw.
Cella, a 6-foot-2 middleweight, explicitly stated that Hall's knockout "wasn't that amazing," even though it rendered him unconscious for four minutes.
"It’s funny I got to the hospital and I felt fine, actually," Cella said. "I didn’t feel that injured at all. I’ve gotten concussions before where I had a headache for weeks afterward, but this wasn’t like that. And because I don’t remember anything from that day, I was going on whatever all the commercials were saying: that it was the worst knockout anyone had ever seen. So I was pretty curious and kind of excited to see it. Then I saw it and it was a good knockout, but I didn’t think it was that amazing."
Hall took to Twitter when he heard of Cella's criticism of the knockout heard round the world, and he simply laughed it off.
"@EricHolden @examinercom lmao I really have no response to this," Hall wrote of Cella's comments.
Hall's knockout win was one of the most brutal in UFC history, and Cella says he doesn't remember it happening.
"I didn’t remember anything about it, so it was weird watching myself," Cella said of Hall's devastating spinning back kick. "I don’t remember standing up or talking to the doctor or walking out of the Octagon. I have no memory of anything until I was in the ambulance. I came to in the ambulance and I looked around and I thought to myself, “What is Jon Jones doing with me in an ambulance?” That’s when I figured, 'Well, I guess I lost.'"
