The Ultimate Fighter 17 finalist, Uriah ‘Primetime’ Hall looks to notch his third consecutive victory and arguably the most high-profile win of his career, as he headlines the Las Vegas event opposite division icon, Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva.
35-year-old Spanish Town native, Hall has scored recent wins over both Antonio Carlos Junior and Bevon Lewis over the last two-years, return to the win-column after a knockout loss to one-time middleweight championship challenger, Paulo Costa. The Fortis MMA trainee has won eight separate times in the Octagon, scoring other noteworthy victories over the likes of recently minted Bellator middleweight champion, Gegard Mousasi, and one-time light heavyweight championship chaser, Thiago Santos.
Limited to just one triumph since July of 2013, veteran Brazilian icon, Silva seems to be on the verge of a somewhat retirement from the sport, or at least the end of his promotional stint, having featured a staggering twenty-four times under the organization’s scrutiny.
A dominant former middleweight champion, Silva had scored an incredible ten separate successful title defences, including infamous victories over the likes of Rich Franklin, Dan Henderson, Chael Sonnen (x2), and compatriot, Vitor Belfort.
Taking co-main event honours, streaking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace, Bryce ‘Thug Nasty’ Mitchell attempts to extend his undefeated professional run to fourteen fights. The 26-year-old Arkansas native will sport his requested camouflage fight kit for the first time tonight, as he meets with featherweight mainstay, Andre ‘Touchy’ Fili.
