Following an impressive run of knockouts on The Ultimate Fighter Season 18, Uriah Hall will try to rebound from a loss in the finale when he returns to action at UFC on Fox Sports 1 on August 17 in Boston.

Hall will square off with fellow Ultimate Fighter alum Nick Ring in a battle of stand-up fighters according to UFC officials who announced the fight late on Thursday evening.

Damn, if Hall is getting Ring, I wonder who Gastellum will fight in his non-TUF debut...

I think Gastelum is dropping to WW.

Uriah should beable to beat Ring but, you just never know with Ring he is always in close fights not to mention the judges love him.

I say nick ring takes the decision. He's a smart guy and should know the game plan to beat hall imo.

should be good, if Ring comes in like he did against Camozzi, this is Hall's fight to lose but if he decides to clinch/wrestle this could be a close fight

I like this fight. I could see it going both ways. I'd like to see Hall get his first UFC victory tho.

Halls gonna be the biggest flop TUFs produced since Phillipe Nover.

Rings gonna kill this pretender.

You're wrong. Uriah Hall is champion of the world. Dana said so.

PS Philipe Nover is a light weight Anderson Silva. Not exactly a bust.

*head explodes from sarcsm*

On the real though, are we all going to write off Uriah because he flaked out in the championship? I think he could still be an elite fighter if he can get his head straight.

I think he's more Vitor Belfort than Phillipe Nover...but we'll see, he might be the next Jaime Yager
