Dennis Hallman at UFC 117Former UFC lightweight and welterweight fighter Dennis Hallman suffered a tragedy on Thanksgiving as his family home in Washington burned down.

According to Hallman via a Facebook post, he says that his family is physically fine, but the fire ravaged the house and all of their personal belongings.

“Sad Thanksgiving for me and my family. My house burned down early this AM,” Hallman wrote. “Thank God no one was hurt and I have that to be thankful for. Something like this makes my recent direction change all the harder…the one person that could make me feel okay about everything is no longer here. When God wants you to have a fresh start sometimes he really wants to make his point clear.”

Hallman’s good friend and training partner Benji Radach also updated about the situation, saying that all of the family’s personal belongings were lost and any help that could be provided would be appreciated.

“My good friend Dennis Hallman and his three boys didn’t have the best Thanksgiving. Their house and all of their clothes and belongings went up in flames last night so they have what’s on their back and that’s it. Keep the family in your prayers,” said Radach.

Hallman has had a very tough personal and professional run over the last several months.

Due to personal issues mounting, Hallman struggled to make weight for his last scheduled fight in the UFC, which was the second time the fighter missed making weight for a bout in the Octagon.

The UFC offered to pay Hallman his fight purse, but released him after the show for the repeated infraction for not making weight.
