By Mike Fridley Jun 9, 2015

Uriah Hall cannot wait to get back to work.

Following his disappointing performance against Rafael Natal that resulted in a split decision loss and an end to his three-fight win streak at UFC 187, Hall has accepted a fight against Krzysztof Jotko at UFC Fight Night “Jedrzejczyk vs. Penne” after Jotko’s original opponent Derek Brunson was forced off the card due to injury.

The bout takes place at the 02 World arena in Berlin, Germany, on June 20, which means Hall has accepted the fight on less than two weeks notice.

Before dropping a decision to Natal, Hall (10-5) had defeated Chris Leben, Thiago Santos and Ron Stallings consecutively. The 30-year-old Team Tiger Schulmann middleweight is 3-3 in the UFC, with all of his Octagon loses coming by way of split decision.

Jotko, 15-1, is 2-1 in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and most recently outpointed Tor Troeng in Octocober 2014. The 25-year-old team Planet Eater product has went the distance nine times in his 16 professional bouts.
