Uriah Hall will face a new – but old – opponent in August at UFC on FS1 1.
Nick Ring has suffered an injury and forced to remove himself from the planned main card bout on August 17 vs. Hall. In his place will step Josh Samman, a former castmate on The Ultimate Fighter with Hall.
Samman advanced to the semifinals on the show, and many expected him to face Hall in the championship round. Instead, Kelvin Gastelum scored an upset in the semis and moved on to defeat Hall and capture the TUF title.
