Ryan Hall’s return to action is set to happen against Dan Ige at UFC’s March 13th “Fight Night” event. First reported by Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com, the fight will be Hall’s first since July of 2019.
The bout joins a card that does not have a location confirmed for it at the moment.
Hall has remained undefeated through his UFC run. Having only fought four times since joining the UFC in 2015, Hall’s last fight was in July of 2019, where he won a decision against Darren Elkins.
Hall was pulled from two different bookings in 2020 against Ricardo Lamas. His first fight was scheduled for May, although the fight was postponed after COVID-19 forced UFC to pause their events.
When the fight was placed on an August card, it was subsequently removed after Hall faced injury. Now Hall has a return scheduled against a new opponent.
Ige’s last fight was in July of 2020, where he lost a five-round decision to Calvin Kattar. The loss for Ige stopped his fast climb up the featherweight decision, which saw him defeat six opponents in three years.
