Hallman expresses little interest in a third bout with Hughes

by Damon Martin | source: mmaweekly.com

In a combined time of 38 seconds, Hallman has twice submitted former UFC welterweight champion and UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes, and with his current run in the promotion, there has been some buzz among fans about a third fight between the two.

The only problem is that neither the UFC nor Hallman seem particularly intrigued by the trilogy.

“I don’t know. I’ve got to talk to Matt and see what Matt’s thinking,” UFC president Dana White said when asked about the match-up.

“For myself as a fighter, I don’t have anything to gain,” Hallman said about fighting Hughes again. “If it financially made sense for me, I would want to do it. If it wasn’t something that made sense financially for me then I don’t have anything to gain from it. It’s kind of like that situation.”

“If the people want to see it then I’m sure the UFC will make it happen,” said Hallman.

Much like Hughes/Penn, I think Hughes wins one out of every three fights.

 LOL at this.  Did you watch the fight?  Hallman won the first 14:55 and then got caught with a huge punch with seconds left.  Not a beatdown at all - it was Duffee/Russow esque
