Longtime middleweight contender Uriah Hall will look to maintain his spot in the division Top 10 — and keep Sean Strickland seated at No. 12 — when he goes to war with “Tarzan” at the upcoming UFC 265 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Aug. 7, though a city a venue have yet to be revealed.
That’s according to ESPN.
Hall (17-9), 36, is the winner of four straight for the first time in his UFC career, which got started as part of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 back in April 2013. “Prime Time” is coming off a first-round technical knockout win over Chris Weidman, who broke his leg just 17 seconds into their fight.
As for Strickland (23-3), he’s also captured four consecutive wins, two of which came by way of technical knockout. The 30 year-old “Tarzan” is fresh off his unanimous decision victory over Krzysztof Jotko at UFC Vegas 25 just a few weeks back.
UFC 265 is expected to be headlined by the women’s bantamweight championship battle between Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena. Elsewhere on the card, Drako Rodriguez collides with Vince Morales in featherweight action.
