Uriah Hall replaces injured Michael Bisping, fights Robert Whittaker at UFC 193 in Australia

Joshua Lindsey-USA TODAY Sports

Fresh off his electrifying win over Gegard Mousasi last week in Japan (watch it), rising middleweight contender Uriah Hall will make a lightning-fast turnaround to throw hands against the equally dangerous Robert Whittaker, according to News.au.com.

That's because "The Reaper" was left high and dry when his original opponent, Michael Bisping, was forced to bail on their "Down Under" dance due to injury (details), something rarely seen from "The Count" and enough to add more fuel to this fire.

As for "Primetime," he's now charted course for the UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Nov. 15, 2015 inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Hall (12-5) already has a pair of knockout wins during his 2015 fight campaign and would no doubt like to make it three.

Easier said than done.

Whittaker (14-4) -- six years his junior -- has done some shop wrecking himself, toppling three straight including a blistering first-round knockout over the venerable Brad Tavares back in May. Both fighters are currently ranked in the top 15 (see the list here).

Who ya' got?

UFC 193 features reigning women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey squaring off against unbeaten 135-pound No. 1 contender Holly Holm. In the five-round championship co-main event, strawweight roost ruler Joanna Jedrzejczyk puts her 115-pound strap up for grabs against the rough-and-tumble Valerie Letourneau.
