Back in 2010, Chris Weidman KO’d Uriah Hall in The Ring of Combat organisation. Weidman went on to eventually win the UFC Middleweight title from Anderson Silva, while Hall was working his way up after his appearance on The Ultimate Fighter.

A decade later, Uriah Hall himself is coming off a win over Anderson Silva, and the two are set to rematch. This is a fight that Hall has long hoped to get back, but hasn’t quite made sense up until now.

Weidman first hinted at this earlier today, on his twitter, which you can see below.

Now, Ariel Helwani of ESPN has offered some clarity. Stating that Weidman and Hall have verbally agreed to fight.

Weidman is coming of a win over Omari Akhmedov, which snatched a two fight losing streak. Uriah Hall on the other hand is now on a three fight win streak. Both fighters will need a win in order to have hopes of a title run, and the loser will suffer another major set back in their career.
