Facing Darrick Minner
FeatherweightUFC
September 18, 2021
Hall (hand) will face Darrick Minner at UFC 269 in Las Vegas on Dec. 11, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Hall is apparently ready to go after breaking his hand in his loss to Ilia Topuria back in July. That loss was his first as a UFC fighter, ending a streak of four straight wins. In Minner, he'll face an opponent with similarly little experience at the UFC level, as he's gone 2-2 in four fights with the promotion.

Breaks hand in loss
FeatherweightUFC
July 12, 2021
Hall suffered a broken hand in last Saturday's loss to Ilia Topuria, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Hall had never been defeated prior to last weekend's knockout loss to Topuria. Hall aparently suffered the broken hand on the first punch he landed and was in trouble from there. Hall was supposed to fight Dan Ige back in March, but had to withdraw due to injury. Hall should be back in a couple months from the broken hand and will be looking to get back on track.
Returns from long layoff with loss
FeatherweightUFC
July 10, 2021
Hall lost to Ilia Topuria via KO (punches) at 4:47 of Round 1 at UFC 264 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
A Hall fight is unlike any other UFC experience. Saturday was no exception. An elite, all-world mat specialist, Hall spends the vast majority of virtually all of his bouts rolling around on the mat in hopes his opponent will engage him in a submission battle. As a result, no one wants to fight him. Not only did Topuria jump at the chance, he quickly figured out Hall's timing and hopped on top of him and finished him with powerful strikes. It's impossible to know what to make of Hall moving forward. He's now 36 years of age and has fought four times since December 2016. He had been on the sidelines nearly two full years prior to Saturday. Topuria is a stud, but Hall isn't going to make any sort of progress if he doesn't step into the octagon more frequently.
Booked against Topuria in July
FeatherweightUFC
March 24, 2021
Hall will take on Ilia Topuria in a featherweight matchup at UFC 264 on July 10, Giorgi Kokiashvili of Adjarasport reports (via Marcel Dorff of MMADNA).
ANALYSIS
Hall is a perfect 4-0 in the UFC, but he hasn't been the greatest fantasy scorer, as three of those fights have gone to the judges. He also has yet to eclipse 50 significant strikes in a single bout, landing 2.32 per minute. He draws another solid grappler in Topuria, though Topuria did show some power in his hands when he knocked out Damon Jackson last December to improve his UFC record to 2-0. Hall will enter this matchup with three-inch height and one-inch reach advantages.
Withdraws from upcoming fight
FeatherweightUFC
February 11, 2021
Hall withdrew from his upcoming fight against Dan Ige on Thursday, Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The pair had been set to fight on March 13. The reason for Hall's withdrawal is not yet clear, but it's not the first time he's been forced to withdraw recently, as he also pulled out of an August fight against Ricardo Lamas with an injury. Ige is expected to remain on the card against a new opponent.
Slated to return in March
FeatherweightUFC
January 14, 2021
Hall (undisclosed) is expected to take on Dan Ige in a featherweight matchup at a UFC event scheduled for March 13, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Hall was expected to fight in late August, but an unspecified injury forced him off the card and has kept him sidelined since. He most recently defeated Darren Elkins via unanimous decision at UFC Sacramento in July of 2019 to bring his record with the promotion to 4-0. Ige last fought in July, losing to Calvin Kattar via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night in Abu Dhabi, which brought his six-fight winning streak to an end. The two fighters are even in reach, but Hall has an advantage in height.
