Anderson Silva will make his sensational return to the octagon against Uriah Hall in October as the UFC legend's contract nears its end.
Silva's last outing inside the octagon came in a first-round TKO defeat to Jared Cannonier at UFC 237 in 2019.
But now UFC president Dana White has confirmed that the 'Spider' will face Hall in the main event of UFC Fight Night on 31st October.
ESPN reports that the location for the UFC Fight Night event has not been confirmed.
White recently hinted that Silva's upcoming clash could be his last, despite having two fights remaining on his UFC deal.
Jorge Guimaraes, who is the UFC legend's longtime manager, says that Silva's camp is approaching each fight one case at a time.
"We like the fight, and we'll see how he does," he told ESPN.
"The man is 45 years old, but he's always in good shape, always training. I was at his house the other day, and he was training well. He's lost a lot of weight, and he's been eating healthy."
Silva was initially scheduled to face Uriah Hall at UFC 198 in May 2016, but the UFC star was forced to pull out of the fight after he needed surgery to remove his gallbladder.
Hall, 36, hasn't fought in 2020 and his last fight came against Antonio Carlos Junior at a UFC Fight Night event in September 2019.
McGregor named Silva the GOAT in a controversial Twitter thread and has since revealed his desire to face the UFC legend inside the octagon.
