Five-time UFC veteran Dennis "Superman" Hallman (41-13-2 MMA, 1-4 UFC) will return to the lightweight division for the first time in nine years and plans to fight in late spring or early summer.

The 13-year mixed martial arts veteran said he made the decision after John Howard pulled off a come-from-behind victory in a welterweight contest at "The Ultimate Fighter 10" finale this past December.

"I just got into phenomenal shape and I can't keep on weight," Hallman on Wednesday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I was weighing 167 pounds (before the fight) and I was literally drinking water while I was waiting to weigh-in for John Howard.

The last time the two-time Matt Hughes victor fought at lightweight was September 2001 when he contended for the first UFC lightweight title against Jens Pulver.
