For the third time in recent weeks, Uriah Hall has a new opponent booked for UFC Fight Night 59, as the promotion has announced that Ron Stallings has agreed to the short notice fight.

Hall was originally scheduled to fight Costa Philippou, and then Louis Taylor at the January 18th event, but both middleweights went down with injuries.

Stallings (12-6) will make his UFC debut having dropped his last bout, as the Strikeforce vet was decisioned by Tim Williams at a Cage Fury Fighting Championship card in November. Prior to that Stallings had won three straight.

Hall (9-4) has scored victories over Chris Leben and Thiago Santos in his last two outings, after being decisioned by Kelvin Gastelum and John Howard.

UFC FN 59 will be hosted by the TD Garden in Boston and will feature featherweight Conor McGregor taking on Dennis Siver in the headliner.
