UFC FN 44: Uriah Hall to Battle Thiago Santos
By FCF Staff
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced that TUF 17 Finalist Uriah Hall will compete on the promotion’s upcoming, June 28th card in San Antonio, and that he’ll face middleweight Thiago Santos.
UFC FN 44 will be hosted by the city’s AT&T Center, and will feature Jeremy Stephens taking on featherweight Cub Swanson in the headliner.
Hall (8-4) is coming off a first round, stoppage win (via retirement) over Chris Leben in December, after being decisioned by John Howard and Kelvin Gastelum in his first, official, UFC bouts.
Santos (9-2) recently competed at UFC FN 38 on March 23rd, and quickly took out Rony Markes in the first round with strikes. In his Octagon debut last August, “Marreta” was tapped out by Cezar Ferreira.
