Yves EdwardsLightweights Yves Edwards and Piotr Hallmann have verbally agreed to fight at UFC 173. UFC officials announced the match-up on Monday.

Edwards (42-20-1, 1 NC) is a UFC veteran with 19 fights inside the octagon. He suffered a knockout loss to Yancy Medeiros in his last outing, but the fight was later ruled a No Contest after Medeiros tested positive to a banned substance following the fight. The 37-year-old went winless in 2013.
