Dennis Hallman Returning to Lightweight, Plans to Fight at UFC 114 or UFC 115

Dennis HallmanVeteran Dennis Hallman will return to the 155-pound lightweight division after suffering a third-round knockout to welterweight John Howard in his return to the UFC in December.

“I just got into phenomenal shape and I can’t keep on weight,” Hallman recently told MMAjunkie. “I was weighing 167 pounds (before the fight) and I was literally drinking water while I was waiting to weigh-in for John Howard.”

In his matchup with Howard, Hallman (39-13-2) won the first two rounds before suffering come-from-behind KO with just 5-seconds remaining in the bout, which snapped a four-fight win streak.

Hallman said he plans on returning this summer at UFC 114 (May 29 – Las Vegas) or UFC 115 (June 12 – Vancouver), but has yet to receive an official date or opponent for his next fight from the UFC.
