After his unlikely concurring of the 22nd season of the Ultimate Fighter last December, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist Ryan Hall will make his return to the Octagon to face Alex White in Sioux Falls.
Hall (5-1, 1-0 in UFC) won a UFC contract in his Octagon debut after winning TUF with a victory over Team Europe’s Artem Lobov in the finals. Hall would replace Saul Rogers who had been removed from the Finale due to visa issues. Hall would go on to earn a dominate decision victory over Artem, who had knocked out each competitor he faced in the house to make it to the Finale. Hall has two knockouts and two submission victories inside of his five current wins, not counting his two heel hook submission victories earned in the Ultimate Fighter.
White (11-2, 2-2 in UFC) himself is also coming off a dominant decision victory over Artem Lobov in his last fight. That victory broke a two-fight losing skid against both Clay Collard and the infamously released Lucas Martins. His only other victory inside the Octagon is a knockout win over Estevan Payan in his debut back in April of 2014. White holds five submission victories and four knockouts out of his 11 total wins. White has thus far not been submitted in his MMA career.
