An intriguing middleweight bout appears to be set for early 2018.

Former UFC champion Vitor Belfort (26-13 MMA, 15-10 UFC) announced today on Instagram that he’s signed a bout agreement to fight Uriah Hall (13-8 MMA, 6-6 UFC).

I just signed my bout agreement for January 14th at UFC.
I always looked for big challenges and in my last UFC fight it couldn’t be different…
@uriahhall it’s a honor to share the cage with a such young and talented fighter. Thanks for accepting the fight!

According to Belfort’s post, the fight is slated for a yet-to-be announced UFC event on Jan. 14, which, it should be noted, falls on a Sunday.

In his last fight in June, Belfort scored a unanimous-decision win over Nate Marquardt at UFC 212. It was Belfort’s first victory since Nov. 2015, when he knocked out Dan Henderson at UFC Fight Night 77.

Belfort was called out by Sam Alvey in August and responded in kind. But with Alvey booked to fight Ramazan Emeev on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 118, Belfort apparently has moved on.

In Hall, Belfort faces an opponent also on the rebound. Hall last month rallied to win via TKO over Krzysztof Jotko at UFC Fight Night 116 to snap a three-fight losing streak.
