More than a decade after their first meeting, Chris Weidman and Uriah Hall are going to run it back.
According to ESPN, Weidman and Hall have verbally agreed to square off at UFC 258 on Feb. 13. The Las Vegas-based promotion has not formally announced the bout or a location for the event.
Weidman defeated Hall by technical knockout in the first round at Ring of Combat 31 on Sept. 24, 2010, part of a 13-bout unbeaten streak by “The All-American” to begin his professional MMA career. The 36-year-old Serra-Longo Fight Team representative returned to action after nearly a year away at UFC Fight Night 174, where he captured a unanimous decision triumph against Omari Akhmedov on Aug. 8. Prior to that, the former middleweight champion had lost five of his previous six Octagon appearances — all by knockout or technical knockout.
Hall, meanwhile, is riding the momentum of the second three-fight winning streak of his UFC tenure. The Fortis MMA product is coming off a fourth-round TKO triumph of former champ Anderson Silva in the UFC Fight Night 181 main event. Prior to that, “Primetime” posted victories against Antonio Carlos Jr. and Bevon Lewis.
