      This was a very one-sided fight, with Jon Fitch taking Hallman to the ground in all 3 rounds, and basically grinding out a decision with punches on the ground, and superior wrestling. Hallman went for a heelhook which was kind of close in the second round, so that was kind of exciting, but other than that, this was "just another Jon Fitch 15 minute grinding decision". Is anyone surprised? Yeah, me neither.

      These guys traded a few strikes, and then Hallman threw Hornbuckle to the ground, and then they popped back up immediately. Hornbuckle clinched, pressed Hallman against the fence, and then dropped him with a knee to the groin. Hallman was down for quite a while. When the fight started back up, Hallman threw Hornbuckle to the ground. He spent the rest of the round clinging to Hornbuckle's back, so I'm giving that first round to Hallman. The referee also took a point from Hornbuckle, so as far as I'm concerned, that's a 10-8 round for Hallman.
      The second round started with 90 seconds of back & forth striking, and then Hallman scored a takedown, and spent the rest of the round on top, inside Hornbuckle's guard, trying to work ground & pound, while Hornbuckle mostly just tied him up with his guard. Hallman probably wins that round based on top control, since Hornbuckle didn't come very close with any submission attempts, but Hallman didn't do much from top control either, so I don't know what's going on with the scorecards at this point.
      The third round was basically a repeat of the second round, with Hallman on top for most of the round, while Hornbuckle tried to set things up with his guard, without much success. This fight seems like it's going to be a weird one, because nobody else believed the groin strike was legit, so the lost point there could be questionable, but I thought it was a groin strike, so... I don't know... Two judges agreed with me, in giving the win to Hallman, and the other judge declared it a draw, so Hallman wins via majority decision.

      This fight was kind of cool I guess. Basically Dennis Hallman, WAY bigger than Makdessi going into this fight, grabbed Makdessi, flung him against the cage, took him to the ground, got on his back, beat him up for a while, and then choked him out. Dennis Hallman really was the stereotypical bully in this fight, but it worked well for entertainment's sake I guess, I don't think it did much to raise him up the ranks in the lightweight division though, especially since he failed to make weight for the fight.

      Dennis Hallman was wearing a speedo, and his balls fell out. Now that we have that out of the way, Dennis Hallman started strong, immediately taking the back of Ebersole, and after grappling the shit out of Ebersole, Ebersole was able to get on top, at which point he started raining down HARD elbows, knocking Ebersole the fuck out. Excellent fight for both guys, and I'd say this fight pushes Ebersole ever so closer to the Top 10 at 170 list, what do you think?

      Well, Karo Parisyan used to be one of my favorite fighters in the world, but his head has been out of the game for a long time. This fight started kind of slow and awkward, and then Hallman landed a punch, Parisyan fell down, Hallman battered him with hammerfists, the referee stopped the fight, Parisyan cried, and that's about it. I don't know if there is still a reason for Parisyan to continue fighting, unless he gets some serious help with the mental portion of his game.

     This fight was ok. For the most part, it just consisted of Dennis Hallman taking Saunders to the ground with relative ease, and unleashing some hard elbows, cutting the face of Saunders in the first two rounds. Saunders won back some points with his Muay Thai knees in the third round, but it wasn't enough to secure the victory for him, so Dennis Hallman walks away with the unanimous decision victory.

      This fight was decent, not really all that exciting, other than a few submission attempts that Dennis Hallman threw out there in then first couple of rounds. As soon as he thought he had it in the bank though, within the final minute of the last round, John Howard started throwing thunder, and knocked Hallman the fuck out! Excellent comeback at the last minute, for John Howard, this was a much needed win for the guy that spends a ton of time at the barber shop, getting his cool tattoo style hair did...

      Dennis Hallman took Davis to the ground almost immediately, he grabbed his back, locked on a rear-naked choke, and got the submission victory just 20 seconds into the first round. Really strong performance by Dennis Hallman, against a guy I've never heard of.

      This fight started out great, during the entire first round... Dennis Hallman went in and secured the takedown within the first 5 seconds of the fight, and looked like he was going to dominate on the ground, even nearly locking on some sort of triangle style submission, but then Jorge Rivera escaped it... From that point forward, it was Jorge's fight, since he dominated the last half of the first round, as well as both the second & third rounds... In the end, Hallman got winded way too quickly, and Rivera had some good combos, but couldn't finish the fight with his strikes... So Jorge Rivera wins, by unanimous decision...

      They stood for a few seconds, Frank Trigg took Hallman to the ground, and then there was a bunch of laying around for the first few minutes of the round... Then Hallman started trying to lock on various submissions from the bottom, and Trigg countered that by punching Hallman in the face... Eventually, the fight started to sway in favor of Trigg as he gained more & more control, until eventually he knocked out Dennis Hallman via ground & pound... Good solid fight, albeit lackluster...

      These guys traded some hard strikes, Hallman slapped on a tight standing guillotine choke, and then threw a knee as they reset. They traded some hard strikes again, Trigg clinched, and pressed Hallman against the fence. Trigg worked some dirty boxing, and the referee warned Trigg about punching Hallman repeatedly in the back of the head. They were both then warned for throwing knees that were awfully close to being low blows. Trigg tried to throw down Hallman, but Hallman was able to stay on his feet, so the referee reset them back in the center of the cage. They both traded some wild punches, Trigg looked like he was rocked, and then he kicked Hallman in the head, chased him across the cage, threw a flying knee, Hallman dropped, and the referee paused the fight. I think they're saying it was a flying knee to the groin? That's rough. Oh wait, no... I guess Trigg threw a front kick to the groin before the flying knee, so yeah, that was clearly a groin shot. Hallman threw a high kick, and Trigg's front kick hit him right square in the nuts by accident. Hallman complained that his nuts basically exploded, so the fight was stopped after a long break. I guess Frank Trigg wins the championship, via groin strike?

      This was a long boring fight. Dennis Hallman just looked tired the entire fight, and he spent most of the fight pulling guard, and trying to keep Pulver tied up, more of a defensive strategy than anything else. Pulver was ready to kick some ass, but had trouble getting past the guard. So in the end, I gave all 5 rounds to Pulver, and the only noteworthy thing Hallman did, was in the 5th round, where he threw a drop kick (both legs up in the air, flying forward) it was ridiculous. But yeah, Pulver keeps his belt. The only reason Hallman had any business being in this fight, was because he made Matt Hughes tap out twice, in under 20 seconds. So congrats to Pulver for getting a little revenge for his team.

      Dennis Hallman is crazy. He's like kryptonite for Matt Hughes. They fought before, and he choked Hughes unconscious in under 20 seconds. They fought again here for the second time, Hughes grabbed him, picked him up in the air, slammed him HARD, Hallman locked on a beautiful armbar, Hughes slammed him a few times, and Hallman finished the fight by nearly snapping Hughes's arm off. Pretty awesome fight, and a huge disappointment for Hughes I'm sure.
