Uriah Hall’s response to Luke Rockhold defending his belt against Michael Bisping

May 18, 2016 11:20 am by Russell Ess

Number 10 UFC ranked Uriah Hall was hoping that he would get the call to step in and fight Luke Rockhold for the middleweight title at UFC 199 on June 4 after Chris Weidman was forced to pull out of the originally scheduled match.

Unfortunately for Hall and his fans, the UFC announced on Wednesday that number 4 UFC ranked Michael Bisping would be stepping in on two and a half weeks notice to fight Rockhold for his title.

Hall took to twitter after hearing the news of Rockhold vs. Bisping 2 at UFC 199.

Hall tweeted, “He knew I had a full camp so bisping would be easy coming off 2 weeks .. Smart move.”

Hall was scheduled to fight Anderson Silva at UFC 198 this past weekend, but Silva pulled out of the fight with just a few days notice, having to get a surgery procedure done to remove his inflamed gallbladder.

Hall followed up with another tweet venting his frustration with the UFC’s decision saying, “Lol a loss means nothing ranking means nothing it’s numbers I’m over it you guys should be too”
