Riggs vs. Hall Set for Nashville

 

Nashville gets another intriguing matchup for its August 8 event, as veteran Joe Riggs returns to middleweight to face former Ultimate Fighter finalist Uriah Hall.

The UFC Fight Night card, which is headlined by the light heavyweight bout between Ovince Saint Preux and Glover Teixeira, will be televised live on FOX Sports 1 from the Bridgestone Arena.

Looking to get back in the UFC win column, Arizona's Riggs hopes that a move back to the middleweight division will get him back to the form that saw him win six straight before recent losses to Ben Saunders and Patrick Cote. New York's Hall has won three of his last four, and a victory over the seasoned Riggs will be a key one for the career of "Prime Time."
