Hall (15-9) is the No. 10 ranked middleweight in the UFC. A former TUF contestant, the 36-year-old Hall has been a full-time member of the UFC roster since 2013, racking up an 8-7 record so far inside the Octagon. Some of Hall’s notable wins include Gegard Mousasi, Antonio Carlos Junior, Thiago Santos, Krzysztof Jotko, and Aung La N Sang. Although Hall has struggled at times in the UFC, he rides into this Silva fight having won three of four.
Silva (34-10, 1 NC) is the former UFC middleweight champion and one of the greatest fighters of all time. The 45-year-old Brazilian held UFC gold between 2006 and 2013, but ever since losing to Chris Weidman at UFC 162, he just hasn’t been the same. Silva is 1-6, 1 NC over his last eight fights with his lone win since 2012 coming against Derek Brunson in 2017. Silva is an absolute legend of the sport but he is now in the twilight of his career.
