Ryan Hall will make his long-awaited return to the octagon when he takes on rising prospect Ilia Topuria at UFC 264 set for July 10th, as first reported by Giorgi Kokiashvil.

Ilia Topuria vs Ryan Hall Set for July 10th

Ryan Hall (8-1-0, 2-0-0 UFC) got his start by winning The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale, having defeated Artem Lobov. Highly regarded as a submission specialist, Hall has won three of his eight victories via submission. Hall has seen his last three scheduled bouts cancelled, including two scheduled against Ricardo Lamas in 2020, and most recently versus Dan Ige set for March 13th. He will now make his long-awaited return against the undefeated Topuria.

Ilia Topuria (10-0-0, 2-0-0 UFC) is one of the hottest prospects in the sport currently as he remains undefeated with a record of 10-0. The 24-year-old has a mixture of European roots as he represents Georgia, yet fights out of Alicante, Spain while having been born in Germany. He is coming off wins over Damon Jackson and Youssef Zalal and will be knocking on the door of the featherweight rankings with a win over Hall.

Ilia Topuria vs Ryan Hall is a must-see for MMA fans! No location is set for UFC 264 as of yet, but the bouts added to the card so far is as follows:

  • Women’s Flyweight: Jessica Eye vs Jennifer Maia
  • Featherweight: Ilia Topuria vs Ryan Hall
  • Flyweight: Zhalgas Zhumagulov vs Jerome Rivera

Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor is rumored to be headlining the event, however, has yet to been made official.
