“Stepping away from the greatest sport in the world,” Uriah Hall announced on Wednesday.

Hall, a former finalist on The Ultimate Fighter who has victories over some of the greatest middleweights in the history of the division, including Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman, and Gegard Mousasi, retired after his four-fight winning streak was ended by consecutive decision losses to Andre Muniz and Sean Strickland.

Hall’s post on Instagram

Hall posted on his Instagram account, “It is with great sadness that I will be stepping away from the greatest sport in the world. “I’m going to miss the amazing UFC staff, who I’ve come to think of as family, and the mentors I’ve encountered along the way. I’ve had the best chance to completely push myself outside of my comfort zone thanks to the UFC.

“Over the years, I’ve competed at the highest level against some of the best in the world. My greatest accomplishments in mixed martial arts were facing my fears and becoming a champion in life, even though I never attained the title of world champion.

Hall won 10 of his 19 fights under the UFC’s auspices, compiling a 17-11 record as a professional mixed martial artist. Before joining The Ultimate Fighter in 2012, “Prime Time” won the Ring of Combat middleweight title. He then advanced to the middleweight final, where he faced Kevin Gastelum, by winning three exhibition matches.

His message to the audience

I want to thank the amazing fans because you guys are responsible for the success of the sport today, he wrote. “It’s critical to surround yourself with like-minded individuals who support and motivate you to improve. I want to express my gratitude to my team, coaches, friends, and family for always supporting me. You all have been the inspiration that keeps me motivated every day.”

“Finally, I want to thank Dana White in particular for giving me the chance to fight contemporary gladiators. Thank you for always supporting me thru the good and the bad… To the next generation, you are the top 1% greatest athletes on the planet. I look forward to seeing where you all take this sport. I will be watching! Goforth.”
