The unique grappler Ryan Hall is set to return to action against Ilia Topuria.
Specifically, the news was first reported by a Georgian Website called Adjarasport. In addition, the pairing of featherweights are in agreement to fight on the July 10 UFC card. The fight definitely has big fight vibes because of the rarity of Hall’s presence alongside the unbeaten record of Topuria.
Ryan Hall vs. Ilia Topuria Targeted For Summer
Following an impressive display of technique, Hall beat Darren Elkins back in 2019 where he picked up a unanimous decision victory. Then, when fans were at an all-time high in the excitement level to see Hall compete, the featherweight once again fell off the radar. After two canceled bouts in 2020 and one already in 2021, the inactivity of Hall is inhibiting his success.
Conversely, Topuria jumped into the featherweight field after he handled Youssef Zalal in his debut for the promotion. Overall, Topuria is a potent finisher. Not only that, but the 24-year old’s groundwork is astounding to watch. Interestingly, this is a pairing between two grapplers. In the end, fans and pundits alike will finally see Hall compete again, but also see how he handles a different type of grappler.
