UFC 187: Uriah Hall vs. Rafael Natal booked for May 23 in Las Vegas


It's a battle of streaking middleweights as Uriah Hall collides with Rafael Natal at the upcoming UFC 187 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on May 23, 2015, from inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC announced the bout on Thursday.

After a rocky start to his UFC career, Hall (10-4) was able to rattle off three consecutive wins, including a technical knockout (cut) victory over Ron Stallings back in January. Natal (19-6-1), meanwhile, recently racked up back-to-back wins over Tom Watson and Chris Camozzi to climb out of an 0-2 hole.

Fun fight.

The stacked UFC 187 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card -- perhaps the promotion's best since UFC 100 -- will feature light heavyweight champion Jon Jones vs. Anthony Johnson in the main event, as well as Chris Weidman vs. Vitor Belfort in the championship co-main.
