uriah hall - tuf finaleUFC officials have announced that TUF 17 finalist Uriah Hall will be taking on Nick Ring on the UFC on Sports 1 event that’s set for August 17 in Boston at the TD Garden.

Hall (7-3) is coming off a split decision loss to Kelvin Gastelum in the finals of the “The Ultimate Fighter 17” reality show. Hall was thought to be the favorite, but was edged out by the hard nosed prospect in Gastelum. He’ll look to reestablish the hype he amassed on the show against Nick Ring.

Ring (13-2) is coming off a split decision loss against Chris Camozzi at UFC 158. Ring is a TUF 11 alum but was not able to complete the show due to a knee injury. He currently has a (3-2) UFC record.

The UFC on FOX Sports 1 main event should be named fairly soon. The rest of the card can be found below:

  • Alistair Overeem vs. Travis Browne
  • Thiago Alves vs. Matt Brown
  • Joe Lauzon vs. Michael Johnson
  • Uriah Hall vs. Nick Ring
