Former UFC middleweight title challenger Yoel Romero will return to the octagon this past August, with Uriah Hall becoming the Cuban’s rival.
The famous sports columnist Ariel Helwani announced the organization of the match.
“Yoel Romero vs. Juraj Hall in development for August. There is no date yet, and the contract has not been signed, but both fighters have verbally agreed to the fight, ”an ESPN reporter tweeted.
The 43-year-old Yoel Romero, who is on the strip of three defeats, in the last match made an unsuccessful attempt to take away the UFC middleweight title from Israel Adesagni, losing to the current champion by unanimous refereeing decision after five rounds.
The 35-year-old Uriah Hall, on the contrary, leads a series of two victories, knocking out Bivon Lewis, and winning a separate decision against Antonio Carlos Junior. The next fight the American was supposed to hold against Jacquard Souza at UFC 249 in Jacksonville, however, at the last moment the fight was canceled due to the fact that the Brazilian passed a positive test for coronavirus.
