Less than two weeks removed from his fourth UFC win on August 8, middleweight prospect Uriah Hall has agreed to make a quick turnaround and step up to replace the injured Roan Carneiro against Gegard Mousasi in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night in Saitama, Japan on September 27.
UFC Fight Night, which takes place at the Saitama Super Arena, is headlined by the heavyweight bout between Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson.
Fresh from a first-round TKO of Oluwale Bamgbose on August 8. the 31-year-old Hall, a finalist on season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter, has now won four of his last five bouts. Mousasi, who has scored back-to-back wins ove Dan Henderson and Costas Philippou, is currently ranked sixth in the middleweight division.
