Well, he missed weight in his last fight too but if his family issue is as severe as everyone's making it out to be, he shouldn't fight. I'm just curious as to what it is. Serious enough to screw with making weight but apparently not serious enough to warrant skipping the weigh ins entirely.



Correct me if i'm wrong but i'm pretty sure he didn't even go to the weigh ins. His fight didn't show up at any time during it and Tavares didn't come out either.



He was still trying to make weight.

If he missed weight, then why would Dana give him his win bonus? Let alone fight bonus

This is very strange.

So he missed weight because of some family issues. Dana clearly thought they were a good enough excuse to pay him his fight pay AND win bonus.

Yet somehow it wasn't a good enough excuse to keep his job...

I'm interested to see if they ACTUALLY pulled the fight or if Tavares refused to take it.

It looks to me like they pulled it, other wise Dana wouldn't be paying him.

Props to Dana for treating a fighter who really doesn't draw any money for him like a real person and making sure Hallman and his family don't lose any meals over this situation.

he had some kind of personal family matter so in order of the ufc to not look like assholes they give him a severance pay....he is cut apparently.

I hope nobody died. "Serious family issues" can mean a whole range of terrible things in my book.

I don't know how family matters gets you cut from the Ufc
If he comes back he needs to stay at

So his family matter's were serious enough from him to train 40+ hours a week but not fight? Something doesn't add up, I hope everything clears up.

Thanks Hallman for becoming Ballman!

Well thanks Ariel Helwani for reporting that the fight was cancelled entirely because Hallman missed weight. Now I look like a dick for bashing the guy today.


Maybe there's a lesson there...

Frank Trigg X Dennis Hallman interview

this could add some clarity, kiddies.

I would have been fine if he had wanted to keep it to himself, but after hearing what was really going on, I give him credit for coming out with it, and I can't blame him for missing weight and not fighting.
