MMA: UFC Fight Night-Pittsburgh- Jotko vs Hall Don Wright-USA TODAY Sports

Middleweight veteran Uriah Hall will try to get back into the win column when he takes on Octagon newcomer Bevon Lewis at UFC 232 on Dec. 29 from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Nevada, per a recent promotional announcement.

Hall, 34, is coming off a tough knockout loss at the hands of undefeated Brazilian sensation Paulo Costa. Before that, “Prime Time” was able score a big come-from-behind knockout finish over Polish contender Krzysztof Jotko back at UFC Fight Night 116 in September of last year. The former Ultimate Fighter standout has only managed to post a 1-4 record in his last five appearances so his UFC 232 bout could be a crucial point in his promotional career.

Lewis, 27, brings an undefeated 6-0 record to the octagon and is coming off a memorable first-round finish over Alton Cunningham on the second season of “Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series.” The Jackson-Wink protege has a real chance to deliver fireworks in his UFC debut so it will be interesting to see how he handles a dangerous opponent like Hall. Having teammate Jon Jones on the same card should help the middleweight youngster settle in.

UFC 232 will be headlined by a light heavyweight title fight rematch between the aforementioned Jones and perennial contender Alexander Gustafsson.
