Uriah Hall replaces injured Michael Bisping, faces Robert Whittaker at UFC 193 in Melbourne




TUF Smashes welterweight champion Robert Whittaker (14-4) has quickly climbed the ladder at middleweight, where he earned himself a high-profile bout against Michael Bisping (27-7) on the main card of UFC 193 inside of Ethiad Stadium. Unfortunately, Bisping will no longer be a part of what should be a record-setting night as far as attendance goes come November 15th in Melbourne (on the 14th in stateside due to the time difference). Bisping would reveal that he will be unable to compete against Whittaker on the card due to an elbow injury. Later on in the night, officials announced that Uriah Hall (12-5) has been tapped to fill in for the Brit on short notice.

Fresh off the biggest victory of his career, Hall will look to take advantage of the momentum he’s created following his ultra crafty KO of Gegard Mousasi this past Saturday night in Saitama.
