Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 185-pound veteran Uriah Hall will get the chance to avenge his loss to former middleweight champion Chris Weidman at the upcoming UFC 258 pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for Sat., Feb. 13, 2020 in either Las Vegas or Abu Dhabi.
That’s according to ESPN.
Hall (16-9) suffered a technical knockout loss to Weidman (15-5) in their Ring of Combat 31 main event back in Sept. 2010, in what marked just the third professional fight for the “All American.” Both fighters were undefeated coming into their “Garden State” headliner.
Like Weidman, “Prime Time” worked his way into UFC and carved out a respectable career. In fact, the 36 year-old striker is now the winner of three straight with two of those bouts ending by way of knockout, including last month's finish over Anderson Silva.
Speaking of “The Spider,” Weidman — also 36 — is looking to recapture some of the magic he had against the former Brazilian champion back in 2013. The “All American” has dropped five of his last seven and could be one or two losses away from retirement.
UFC 258 is expected to be headlined by the welterweight title fight pitting reigning 170-pound champion Kamaru Usman against top 170-pound contender Gilbert Burns. Expect more fight card announcements in the coming weeks.
