Shawn “Dallas” Hall


Watch out! Is all we can say about our newest addition to MMA Fight Radio.

Dallas is as real as they come. As a highly touted athlete Dallas’ competition days came to an end when he suffered a tragic auto accident in 2000 leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. It may have ended his competition career but it never stopped his drive or passion for sports. Dallas is not just a fan, he has been able to successfully navigate the national MMA scene. He got his start in MMA managing several local pros using his proven knowledge of running a profitable corporation helped these athletes understand the importance of branding and creating their own value inside and outside the cage.

As if that’s not enough, He has since moved into his dream position and is a newly licensed judge with the AZ Boxing commission. With his intimate knowledge of the business structure of mma and his wealth of technical recognition of martial arts Dallas is a welcomed edition to MMA Fight Radio and we are sure the fans will enjoy his unfiltered and educated cantor.
