TUF 17 sensation Uriah Hall is set to make his return to the octagon for the first time since losing in the season finale to fellow Team Sonnen teammate Kelvin Gastelum. Hall’s return to the cage will come on the UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 card at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. Hall is set to face off against Canadian Nick Ring at the event. News of the bout first surfaced in very late Thursday night on Twitter.

There is no word on whether this will be on the main card or preliminary card, though the prelims seems most likely.
Most of Ring’s career wins have come by way of submission, while Hall makes his presence felt in the stand up game.
After an impressive outing during his season of TUF, many expected Hall to come in to the UFC and become an immediate contender, but Gastelum had different plans. Hall will be looking to get another spectacular knockout under his belt this August when he takes on Ring, who has dropped two of his past three fights.
Here is the current fight card for UFC on FOX Sports 1 1:
- Travis Browne vs. Alistair Overeem
- Thiago Alves vs. Matt Brown
- Michael Johnson vs. Joe Lauzon
- Uriah Hall vs. Nick Ring
Irish featherweight sensation Conor McGregor is also expected to fight on the card, but an opponent has not yet been named.
