Dennis Hallman at UFC 117

Dennis Hallman at UFC 117

Dennis Hallman’s interesting choice in ring wear didn’t go unnoticed by most who watched UFC 133 on Saturday night, including president Dana White.

Hallman walked out for his fight with Brian Ebersole wearing what could loosely be described as a speedo, and proceeded to share with the world more Dennis Hallman than most fans probably wanted to see.

White was so disgusted with the apparel that he even awarded Ebersole, who defeated Hallman, a $70,000 bonus just for getting the win over the man sporting the banana hammock.

Following the event, White erupted at UFC employees who check fighters before they fight for even allowing him to walk to the cage wearing the attire.

“I’m seriously pissed off at the guys who work for us that let him walk out with those things on. I’ve never been so embarrassed in the UFC as I was when (Hallman walked out in the shorts),” White commented to MMAWeekly.com following the fights.

While state athletic commissions do have the call to approve or disapprove certain ring attire, they didn’t intervene in the case of Dennis Hallman’s “barely there” shorts.

Because of Hallman’s choice in fight apparel, White says they will now have some sort of code in place to make sure fighters don’t sport that type of fight “short” again.

“We do now,” White answered when asked if the UFC will have a dress code now. “You know what I thought we had? I thought we had some common sense. At least a little bit of common sense. That was a really bad moment, I was horrified by that.”

Hallman suffered a loss to Ebersole at the event, but his choice in ring wear will likely follow him for a lot longer than the defeat.
