“I haven’t seen any downs (in my career), really; it’s only downs when you believe and start to listen to the media, because the media is usually bullsh-t and they usually come up with sh-t that makes no sense,” Hall told MMAjunkie. “They will never step in your shoes for a day, no less a second, but they can write a story to think that they know you. I was at that point where I used to believe the media, but the media is bullsh-t, and people who are negative are bullsh-t.”
With so much of the MMA news cycle taking place on the Internet and fight promotions such as UFC pushing athletes to have a social media presence, it’s not easy to push all the distractions aside. Hall says he’s found the formula to make that happen, though, and now he’s able to focus on three things important to success: fighting, winning and learning.
“The first step in doing stuff like that is being honest; I’m honest with myself and I’m honest with everybody else,” Hall says. “I’ve been doing something in (2015), and it’s called being honest, and the first step is being honest with yourself.
