UK start time, undercard, live stream and how to follow – UFC takes on NFL superstar ahead of Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva

UFC great Uriah Hall takes on NFL superstar Le’Veon Bell in another crossover exhibition clash on undercard Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva tonight.

Hall has been a mainstay on the elite MMA scene since 2009, but his UFC career has taken a hit in recent years following losses to Andre Muniz and Sean Strickland.

Uriah Hall and Le’Veon Bell will square off this weekend

The 38-year-old, known as ‘Prime Time’, is now ready to code-switch to the boxing ring and take on Bell.

Bell is an All-Pro NFL running back but is currently without a team and has focused on boxing this year.

He knocked out fellow American footballer Adrian Peterson in their exhibition bout last month and the 30-year-old certainly has the raw power to threaten combat sports veteran Hall.

Hall vs. Bell: Start date and time

This four-round cruiserweight fight will take place on Saturday October 29 as part of mainstay support for Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva.

It will take place at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona.

The card will start from 1am on Sunday morning for UK fans with Hall vs Bell expected around 3am.

But remember that clocks go back, so keep that in mind.

Hall vs. Bell: What Was Said?

Uriah Hall at the end of his MMA career: “I’ve spent the last 20 years of my life dedicating myself, my soul, to an attribute, and then all of a sudden, it’s gone, it’s removed.

It was really dark and deep places, and luckily I had the right people around me to support me.

“When I say I felt depressed, I even looked at my gun at one point, like, ‘Wait a minute, I could be going down a very dark road if I don’t make it.'”

Le’Veon Bell: “I have to be into boxing if I want to do this, because it’s not something you can mess with if you want to be the best at it.

“I’m not about to do anything if I’m not trying to be the best, to be honest.

“I don’t do this as a hobby. I don’t just do this to try to get money or any kind of fame. For me, it’s more for me. See how far I can go.

Jake Paul: “Adding NFL superstar Le’Veon Bell to the card only increases the power of this fight and puts him up against a fighter as experienced and dangerous as Uriah Hall – it’s going to be fireworks .

“Taking on this challenge is proof that Bell, like me, is serious about professional boxing and after his knockout of Adrian Peterson looks like a force to be reckoned with.

“Hall, on the other hand, has proven himself many times before in the UFC and we know what he’s capable of.”
