UFC Books Uriah Hall vs. Rafael Natal
By FCF Staff
The line-up for UFC 187 continues to grow, as the promotion has announced that Uriah Hall will fight middleweight Rafael Natal at the May 23rd card.
Hall (10-4) has won three straight bouts now since he was decisioned by Kelvin Gastelum and John Howard in back-to-back bouts. Most recently, the feared striker stopped Ron Stallings in the opening round (via cut) at UFC FN 59.
Natal (19-6-1), on the other hand, is coming off decision wins over Chris Camozzi and most recently Tom Watson. Prior to the victories, the noted grappler was decisioned by Ed Herman and KO’d by Tim Kennedy.
UFC 187 will feature light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones taking on Anthony Johnson, and middleweight champ Chris Weidman versus Vitor Belfort.
The event will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
