“Superman” will meet Anthony Waldburger at UFC Fight Night 24 on March 26 at the Key Arena in Seattle. The event -- which figures to be headlined by a bout between former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira -- was recently made official by the promotion, along with a featherweight rematch between Leonard Garcia and “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 12 semi-finalist Nam Phan.
MMAJunkie.com on Saturday was first to report Hallman’s new contract, and Sherdog confirmed the report shortly thereafter.
Hallman has won six of his last seven bouts, including a 2-1 stint in his current run with the UFC. The 35-year-old rejoined the promotion in 2009, losing by knockout to the hard-punching John Howard at “The Ultimate Fighter 10” Finale. Hallman found success in his next two contests, however, as he earned a unanimous decision against American Top Team’s Ben Saunders at UFC 117 and followed that performance with a technical knockout of Karo Parisyan at UFC 123.
Hallman owns 33 of his 43 career victories by submission, including two lightning-quick wins over UFC hall of famer Matt Hughes. The Washingtonian began his career in 1997 and has competed against some of the sport’s best-known names, including Frank Trigg, Jens Pulver and Caol Uno. The welterweight recently discovered he suffered from Coeliac Disease, which caused his body to react negatively to wheat gluten and depleted his energy in both training and fighting.view original article >>
