After a huge PPV like UFC 254, the UFC is cooling things down a bit with this week’s Fight Night offering. The promotion is back in Vegas for a fight card that has a couple highlights, but mostly just feels like a grab-bag of whoever was around and interested in fighting on the date. The main event, Anderson Silva vs. Uriah Hall, feels like a bout that was supposed to go down in much different circumstances than Silva coming off his 3rd two-fight losing skid in the last seven years. The co-main, between Andre Fili and Bryce Mitchell is a legitimately awesome action contest, and the card is otherwise carried by Kevin Holland and Bobby Green once again making quick turnarounds.
