Anderson Silva vs. Uriah Hall Rumored For UFC 198

Anderson Silva

Uriah Hall just might have hit the jackpot thanks to his win over Gegard Mousasi.

Or it might be a nightmare.

According to a report by Sherdog, the former Ultimate Fighter finalist and Anderson Silva are headed to a meeting at UFC 198 this May in Brazil. The event is set to take place inside a soccer stadium with Fabricio Werdum defending his heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic.

Silva was bested by Michael Bisping recently, returning from a year-long suspension after his fight in 2015 with Nick Diaz. The former UFC middleweight champion has not won a fight since besting Stephan Bonnar in 2012, which was also the last time he competed in Brazil.

Hall (12-6) went 3-2 over five 2015 appearances, including his win over Mousasi. Last September, he finished the former Strikeforce champion with a flying knee in the second round. Overall, he is 5-4 in nine Octagon appearances.
