Interesting...Hallman was impressive in the past when he dispatched Hughes in less than 37 seconds total(two fights)! However, recently he hasn't looked that good. Salmon has a good chance of winning this fight.

Hallman just has Hughes' number. Overall however, he is not that great of a fighter.

Yes, that's pretty much what I said in a nutshell.

That's not bad for an alternate fight...you could probably make a case for either of those guys actually being in the tourney.

Correction - "HAD" I very much doubt he would of ever been able to pull off another quick guillotine win

Pretty gash matchmaking imho, Salmon would of been a much tougher test for Cung Le than Sammy will be so they should of swapped those 2 imho

Salmon will win this by decision i think
