The expectations for UFC middleweight Uriah Hall were extremely high entering the Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale given his performance on the attached season and a ton of hype from UFC President Dana White. Of course, things didn’t exactly play out as planned and Hall lost a Split Decision to underdog Kelvin Gastelum.
Hall will have a chance to redeem himself in a few months when he meets Nick Ring at UFC on FS 1. Officials announced the bout’s addition to the August 17 card earlier today.
The 7-3 Hall has finished six of his opponents including four by way of strikes. Prior to his loss to Gastelum he’d won a trio of tilts in a row not counting the sensational stoppages he scored on TUF 17.
