UFC 133 Results: Brian Ebersole Takes Out Dennis Hallman


Brian Ebersole

Brian Ebersole extended his winning streak to nine on Saturday, grounding and pounding Dennis Hallman to a first-round stoppage at UFC 133 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Hallman, dressed in blue speedo-type trunks, immediately came out and secured a takedown in the opening seconds of the fight. From there, Hallman took Ebersole’s back and began looking for a rear naked choke.

Ebersole was able to turn to escape and gained top position where he brutalized Hallman with punches and elbows.

The end came at the 4:28 mark of the first round when a well-placed elbowed caused Hallman to briefly go limp, forcing the referee to stop the fight.

“I’m amazingly happy (with my performance),” said Ebersole following the technical knockout victory.

“I came out in a bit of a daze and got taken down, but I’ve been there with black belts before in this training camp,” he said. “I was comfortable and once I got on top, I’m the wrestler.”

Ebersole lobbied Joe Rogan during his post-fight interview for an “all UFC Fear Factor.”  Rogan said he would put in a good word.
