Uriah Hall, Andre Muniz middleweight fight rebooked for UFC 276 on July 2
Andre Muniz- Uriah Hall
Seems like no matter the previous cancellation, middleweights Uriah Hall and Andre Muniz were destined to scrap anyway. Hall and Muniz were originally booked for UFC on ESPN 24 which was headlined by welterweights Vicente Luque and Belal Muhammad. The fight was called off on Hall’s side and Muniz’s manager Alexis Davis immediately reported that he was ready to fight a short notice replacement in Dricus Du Plessis but Du Plessis didn’t take the fight.
Hall was running on a 4-fight winning streak when UFC middleweight Sean Strickland decided to spoil the show in his last fight and hand him a unanimous decision loss. Hall is regardless, a legit contender in the division and therefore a strong opportunity for the relative new fighter in Andre Muniz who’s on an undefeated run in the UFC.
Uriah Hall vs Andre Muniz- a magnificent striker vs an exceptional grappler
As reported by Cageside Press, Muniz and Hall are now rebooked for UFC 276 on July 2, 2022, in T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, the United States. The main event of UFC 276 is to be decided. Hall who shot to fame with his highlight-reel knockout against Adam Cella at The Ultimate Fighter: Season 17, has made many notable victories against Chris Leben, Thiago Santos, Gegard Mousasi, Krzysztof Jotko, Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman and many more.
Muniz on the other hand is a submission specialist and came out of Dana White’s Contender Series: Season 1. So far, Muniz has 15 of his 22 wins by the way of submissions and his rise to fame came from his submission victory over the grappling legend, Ronaldo Souza, whose hand was broken by Muniz’s armbar due to no tap from Souza.
What do you make of this matchup? This fight sounds like a classic grappler vs striker contest, on feet, Hall has all the advantages of a striker where he is well versed in mixing up his punches with his surprisingly executed kicks. On the ground, it’s all Muniz’s world and once he gets a hold of you, it’s all done for the Brazilian.
