Hall hasn't really lived up to his potential in some time, but tonight, after the midway point of the 1st, Hall was more or less a stationary target. Good luck to both in the future.
Pretty sure the body shots did him in, and Hall just kept his poker-face on but lost all his mobility... As for Costa, he's overwhelming guys for a living, just relentless pressure and sick head-body combinations.
He may suffer a fate similar to that of Gaethje though, he gets rocked frequently and at one point his chin will give in. The question is how much damage he'll have been able to dish around his division by then, if he can put one or two performances like this together we may start hearing talks about a top-5 opponent for him, and at that level one can only wonder.
I see crazy entertaining fights for us in the near future though, Yoel (if he doesn't move up right away) standing and trading and trying to take him down, or Whittaker just putting it all together against this plodding Brazilian monster
