South Okanagan MMA fighter gets groovy with post-victory dance

Marlan “Pretty Boy” Hall wants help in picking his celebration dance for his future pro career

The South Okanagan’s soon-to-be newest professional MMA fighter wants his fans help in choosing his post-fight victory celebration.

Oliver resident Marlan “Pretty Boy” Hall made quite a name for himself in the amateur circuit of the Battlefield Fight League, clinching 10 wins in total and earning the title of featherweight champion in September 2018. He went on to defend the title in his last amateur fight on March 17, pinning challenger Casey O’Leary in under two minutes in the first round.

Hall announced shortly before this fight, which was hosted at the Hard Rock Casion in Coquitlam, that he would be taking the summer to train and then would be entering the professional fight circuit in the fall. He told Western News staff that he currently “has things in the works” and expects to make an announcement about his future pro MMA fighting career in the very near future.

In the meantime, he has taken to Facebook to get his fans’ help in preparing for what he hopes will be a very succesful career – he wants to know which victory dance they would like to see him do following a fight. Facebook friends and followers were much amused on July 25 when reviewing the options he presented, either the worm or the canoe.

So we want to know, which victory dance do you think Marlan “Pretty Boy” Hall should perform and why?
