Retired UFC Vet Uriah Hall To Face Former NFL Player Le’Veon Bell In Boxing Match

Uriah Hall might be retired from MMA, but he’s not entirely done with combat sports.

Hall has been booked to face former NFL player Le’Veon Bell in a boxing bout. The matchup is expected to be part of the October 29th card headlined by Anderson Silva and Jake Paul, as announced Thursday.

The fight is joining a card that will take place at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, USA.

Hall will be making his first appearance as a boxer in this bout. The booking also marks his first appearance since ending his 19-fight UFC run and announcing his retirement from MMA.

Hall declared the end of his MMA career in August, two months after suffering a decision loss to Andre Muniz at UFC 276.

Bell, a long-time running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, will be appearing as a boxer for the second time. He won his debut in September, scoring a fifth-round stoppage against 14-year NFL veteran Adrian Peterson.

The fight will be held at a weight limit of 195 pounds, which is just nine pounds above what Hall competed at during his UFC stint.
