Uriah Hall (pictured) is just five days removed from posting the biggest win of his up-and-down career, so why not strike while the iron is hot?
Hall has agreed to replace injured Michael Bisping and fight Robert Whittaker at UFC 193.
The November 14 event takes place inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
Hall served up an upset special by TKO’ing Gegard Mousasi this past Saturday. Hall beat Oluwale Bamgbose prior to UFC Fight Night 75.
Whittaker, meanwhile, is perfect through his past three outings. He’s looking to build off May’s knockout victory over Brad Tavares.
It was announced Wednesday that Bisping will have minor elbow surgery that will force him to ride the pine for a few weeks.
Here is UFC 193’s updated lineup:
Anthony Perosh vs. Gian Villante
Steve Kennedy vs. Richard Walsh
Kyle Noke vs. Peter Sobotta
Ricardo Abreu vs. Daniel Kelly
Akbarh Arreola vs. Jake Matthews
Uriah Hall vs. Robert Whittaker
Stefan Struve vs. Jared Rosholt
Mark Hunt vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva
Valerie Letourneau vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk (UFC strawweight champion)
Holly Holm vs. Ronda Rousey (UFC bantamweight champion)
