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
