Nick Ring out, Josh Samman steps in to face Uriah Hall at UFC on FOX Sports 1 1

USA TODAY Sports

As Nick Ring suffers another injury setback, Josh Samman steps in on short notice to face fellow TUF 17 cast mate Uriah Hall at UFC on FOX Sports 1 1.

A fight many had pegged for the TUF 17 final looks to be happening next month in Boston. Cast mates on last season's 'Ultimate Fighter 17,' Josh Samman will now face Uriah Hall at UFC on FOX Sports 1 1. Hall was originally slated to face Nick Ring, who appears to have suffered another injury setback, his second in three fights.

Hall (Team Sonnen) and Samman (Team Jones) seemed to be last season's top dogs until each of them ran into eventual winner Kelvin Gastelum. After scoring a rear naked choke over Samman to earn his spot in the finals, Gastelum topped Hall via split decision to become the season's 'Ultimate Fighter.'

With Gastelum making his welterweight debut against Paulo Thiago the same night, the new middleweight bout creates an opportunity to salvage a lack of prospect depth coming out of last season. Samman has already rebounded from his TUF experience after scoring an impressive TKO win over fellow alum Kevin Casey at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale back in April.

UFC on FOX Sports 1 1: Shogun vs. Sonnen will take place Aug. 17 from the TD Garden in Boston. The main event features a light heavyweight bout between former UFC champion Mauricio Rua and three-time challenger Chael Sonnen.
