The Brazilian announced the news on Instagram earlier today.
“Next Fight! #UFC249 Vs. Uriah Hall,” Souza posted on Thursday.
UFC 249 will feature the highly anticipated and much-talked about lightweight showdown between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson, where Khabib will put his lightweight title up for grabs in the main event. American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) head coach Javier Mendez believes the bout could take place in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates while Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, thinks the bout will take place in Dubai.
