UFC 232 will get a dose of ‘Prime Time’ as Uriah Hall welcomes Bevon Lewis to the octagon this December.
Twelfth-ranked UFC middleweight and Ultimate Fighter finalist Uriah Hall returns at UFC 232, the promotion announced Friday. Added to the official fight card for the event in Las Vegas is Hall vs. Bevon Lewis, the undefeated two-time veteran of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. The fight will mark Lewis’ promotional debut with the UFC.
Hall (14-9) most recently lost to Paulo Costa at UFC 226 in July. The Jamaican-American fighting out of New York, New York has struggled of late, going 1-4 in his past five fights. The lone win in that span came prior to the Costa fight, when Hall knocked out Krzysztof Jotko in a Performance of the Night effort. Prior to that, losses to Gegard Mousasi, Derek Brunson, and Robert Whittaker piled up.
In Bevon Lewis (6-0), Hall will welcome an undefeated fighter with appearances in both DWTNCS and LFA. Having turned pro in 2015, half of Lewis’ six wins have been finishes.
UFC 232 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The card is headlined by Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson, meeting for the second time with light heavyweight gold on the line. Women’s bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes will also move up in weight to challenge featherweight Queen Cris Cyborg at the event.
