By FCF Staff
Uriah Hall has a new opponent for the January 18th, UFC Fight Night 59 card, after his original opponent, Costa Philippou withdrew due to injury.
The promotion has announced that Strikeforce and Bellator vet Louis Taylor will face Hall at the event, which will take place at Boston’s TD Garden Arena.
Taylor (11-3) joins the UFC armed with a four fight, win streak, and most recently the middleweight tapped out UFC vet Brian Houston, at an American Predator FC card in October.
Hall (9-4), meanwhile, is coming off victories over Chris Leben and Thiago Santos, after he was decisioned by John Howard in August.
UFC FN 59 will feature a featherweight fight between Conor McGregor and Dennis Siver in the main event.
