Undefeated featherweight Ilia Topuria will test his career-long win streak against Ryan Hall at UFC’s July 10th pay-per-view event. The fight will see the return of Hall after over two years outside of the cage, per a report from Giorgi Kokiashvili of Adjarasport.
The fight joins UFC 264, which is set to happen at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Topuria has picked up two wins in his ongoing rookie year in the UFC. He made his promotional debut in October, where he scored a decision victory against Youssef Zalal.
Two months later, Topuria picked up a first-round stoppage victory against Damon Jackson.
He will now fight Hall, who has not competed since July of 2019. Numerous cancelled bookings in the past two years have kept him out of the cage.
Hall has won four fights in the UFC since joining the roster in 2015. He last fought in 2019, where he defeated Darren Elkins on scorecards.
