Dennis Hallman (51-14-2 MMA, 4-5 UFC) and Thiago Tavares (17-4-1 MMA, 7-4-1 UFC) have been added to a new UFC pay-per-view event.

The lightweights are set to meet at the yet-unannounced UFC 150, which is targeted for Aug. 11. Sherdog.com first reported the matchup, and Tavares confirmed it via Twitter.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) sources say Denver's Pepsi Center may host the fight card, but nothing has been finalized to date.

Hallman most recently appeared at UFC 140, where he quickly submitted hometown hero John Makdessi at the Canadian pay-per-view event. That eased the sting of a first-round TKO at the hands of Brian Ebersole at UFC 133. Still, the 36-year-old has in the midst of a career resurgence with an 8-2 mark over the past five-and-a-half years.

"Superman" was supposed to fight "The Ultimate Fighter 13" winner Tony Ferguson at next weekend's UFC on FOX 3 but was forced to withdraw due to injury. His replacement was Tavares, but then Tavares was forced to withdraw due to injury.

So the UFC has taken the injured and put them together.

Easier said than done, but I think if Hallman only throws big ones and wades through the smaller shots, he could easily end this in rd 1. Tavares has a pretty poor chin from my recollection.
