Former welterweight Dennis Hallman (43-14-2 MMA, 3-5 UFC) is cutting down (his weight, not his shorts) and now meets lightweight John Makdessi (9-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at UFC 140.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) confirmed verbal agreements are in place for the December fight, which MMADiehards.com first reported.

UFC officials have not formally announced the fight, which takes place Dec. 10 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

The night's main card airs live on pay-per-view, though Hallman vs. Makdessi likely will be part of the preliminary card.

Hallman really upset Dana and facing Makdessi is his punishment.

I'm becoming a fan of Makdessi and want him to win because he is more of the future than Hallman because of his age.

This will be a great fight. I doubt Makdessi can hang grappling with Hallman, and I also doubt Hallman can hang if he strikes with Makdessi. Classic match making right here. Who will prevail? The Kickboxing Canuck, or the Speedo wearing Superman? We'll find out

Makdessi is certainly going to punish Hallman! Its fun to watch a kid from little old Halifax actually make a splash in the big leagues. (even if he is slightly cross eyed)

I like Hallmans gameplan against Ebersole, attack early and get that choke early, Makdessi is definitely a future contender if he cuts to 145 but i dont know how he's gonna handle the jitz of a bigger 155er who used to be a 170er.

I like Makdessi to knock Dennis out but it wont be easy

after seeing what Makdessi did to Watson (has he even recovered yet? lol), im kinda scared to Hallman's well being.
