Sources informed MMAWeekly.com on Monday that Wall has agreed to step in for Andreas Stahl to fight Alex Garcia at the Dec. 7 event, which airs on Dec. 6 in the United States. It was unclear at the time of publication as to why Stahl withdrew from the bout.
A member of Team Australia during The Smashes, this will be Wall’s first official fight for the UFC. He lost a decision to eventual finalist Colin Fletcher in the opening round of the show, and did not fight at the show’s finale.
Wall has fought just once since TUF aired, a unanimous decision victory in the main event of a smaller event in Queensland, Australia. His official professional record is 7-0-1.
Garcia is currently 10-1, riding a four-fight victorious streak. The UFC Fight Night 33 bout with Wall will be his first under the UFC banner.
UFC Fight Night 33 is headlined by a heavyweight match-up between Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
