Former Ultimate Fighter runner-up Uriah Hall will return to the Octagon this July, meeting Thiago Santos at UFC 175, officials confirmed Tuesday.
Set for July 5 from Las Vegas, the card will feature UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman defending his title against Lyoto Machida.
Hall (8-4) scored his first Octagon victory when Chris Leben stopped after a devastating first round of action. The 29-year-old had dropped his initial two UFC fights to John Howard and Kelvin Gastelum – both via split decision.
Santos (9-2) was on the second season of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil. He is 1-1 with the promotion, falling to Cezar Ferreira before rebounding to defeat Ronny Markes recently.
