Ryan Hall’s return could come sooner rather than later, as UFC is reportedly looking to put him against Darrick Minner for their December 11th pay-per-view card.
The matchup, which has not been finalized but is expected to be confirmed soon, was first reported by Farah Hannoun and Mike Bohn of MMA Junkie.
Should the fight be made official, it would join the UFC 269 PPV – an event that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.
Hall suffered his first UFC loss in July, getting stopped in the first round with strikes from undefeated lightweight Ilia Topuria. The fight was Hall’s return to action, with his four previous UFC bouts spanning from 2015 to 2019.
UFC 269 is expected to be the promotion’s last PPV event of the year. The card looks strong thus far, with two title fights announced and a lightweight championship bout reportedly in the works.
Here’s how the card looks:
Bout 8: Charles Oliveira (31-8) vs. Dustin Poirier (28-6) (UFC Lightweight Championship)
Bout 7: Amanda Nunes (21-4) vs. Julianna Pena (10-4) (UFC Bantamweight Championship)
Bout 6: Brandon Moreno (19-5-2) vs. Deiveson Figueiredo (20-2-1) (UFC Flyweight Championship)
Bout 5: Kai Kara-France (22-9) vs. Cody Garbrandt (12-4) (Flyweight)
Bout 4: Maycee Barber (9-2) vs. Montana De La Rosa (12-6-1) (Flyweight)
Bout 3: Randy Costa (6-2) vs. Tony Kelley (7-2) (Bantamweight)
Bout 2: Dricus Du Plessis (16-2) vs. Andre Muniz (21-4) (Middleweight)
Bout 1: Darrick Minner (26-12) vs. Ryan Hall (8-2) (Featherweight)
