After taking some time off to mend a broken toe (see the graphic image here), one he suffered during his unanimous decision victory over Thiago Santos at UFC 175 back on July 5, 2014, Uriah Hall is eyeing a return to action this December.
And with good reason, too, as a fight and subsequent win over the former Golden Gloves-winning boxer would give Hall some payback after losing to the Cypriot at Ring of Combat 34 three years ago while both men were still fighting it out in the minor leagues.
After losing his first two bouts inside the Octagon, Hall turned it around by reeling off consecutive wins against Chris Leben and the aforementioned Santos. And it's a good thing, too, as his UFC career looked to be coming to an end before it had the chance to pick up any steam.
Costas, meanwhile, recently got back on the winning track himself by knocking out Lorenz Larkin in the very first round of their 185-pound contest at UFC Fight Night 40: "Brown vs. Silva" last May. Prior to that, Philippou had dropped two straight to Francis Carmont and Luke Rockhold.
According to the report, Philippou's manager, Lex McMahon, revealed that his client did indeed have an empty dance card at the moment, but didn't offer up his thoughts on the proposed fight.
While he's staying mum, what do you have to say about this potential middleweight showdown?
