News broke earlier today that former champ Chris Weidman had suffered an injury and was forced to withdraw from his scheduled UFC 199 main event rematch with current UFC middleweight title holder Luke Rockhold.

Shortly after the news broke, perennial contender Michael Bisping offered to step up and take the short-notice fight with Rockhold.

Then just moments ago, dangerous striker Uriah Hall took to Twitter to ask for the short-notice fight with Luke. Here is what Hall had to say:

Uriah Hall was just in training camp for a scheduled UFC 198 bout with Anderson Silva, which ended up falling through due to an illness suffered by “The Spider”, so he should be primed and ready to go.

Would you like to see Hall and Rockhold go at it for the UFC’s middleweight title on June 4 in Los Angeles, or would you prefer to see a different opponent selected by UFC officials? Sound off PENN Nation!
