Thursday’s situation marks the second time Hallman has failed to
make weight since announcing his return to the lightweight
division. The 36-year-old previously came in heavy for his UFC 140
meeting with Canadian striker John
Makdessi but nevertheless dominated the catch-weight contest,
taking “The Bull” to the mat and sealing the deal with a

at “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 10 finale, Hallman would win three

summer by Brian
Ebersole at UFC 133 in his final fight at 170 pounds.
