The matchup was initially reported in August. The official announcement was made today by the promotion.

Silva and Hall were expected to battle it out back in May 2016 at UFC 198. The bout fell off four days before the event, after “Spider” withdrew due to required surgery to remove his gallbladder. Hall didn’t compete on that show either.

In his previous outing in September last year Uriah Hall took a split decision against Antonio Carlos Junior. In December 2018 he knocked out Bevon Lewis in Round 3.

He was set to get back in action and face Yoel Romero this past August. The bout didn’t go ahead after the latter withdrew due to an undisclosed reason.

Anderson Silva, on the other hand, lost two bouts in a row. In May 2019 he suffered the defeat via first-round TKO against Jared Cannonier, after dropping a unanimous decision against Israel Adesanya. His most recent win goes back to February 2017 when he scored a unanimous decision over Derek Brunson.

The announced to date list of matchups for UFC Fight Night: Hall vs. Silva can be found below.
