Makdessi vs. Hallman booked for UFC 140


Canada’s #3 ranked Lightweight, John “The Bull” Makdessi has signed to take on Dennis Hallman at UFC 140 in Toronto. The undefeated resident of Tristar Gym in Montreal will look to spoil Superman’s return to the Lightweight Division after decade of competing at 170lbs and higher. Hallman however will look to erase the memory of a quick loss and an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction in his most recent which drew the fury of Dana White.

Makdessi is going to give up a big size advantage in this one. He's going to have to rely on speed for sure. He has shown excellent takedown defense, but can he defend against Hallman? Time will tell...

Makdessi is a very fun fighter to watch. It's going to be interesting seeing Hallman at 155 though.

Nice matchup!I don't see Makdessi hanging with the grappling at all but Hallman is going to wade through some crazy strikes to get close.

Damn why are they matching up such a exciting fighter with Ballman...? Who is just gonna wear a thong, run up to makdessi, hug him, and try and shove his nuts in Makdessi's face for three rounds. I really hope Makdessi has good TDD.

Makdessi would have to chop off one of his tree trunk legs to make 145. Height wise it looks like he could do it.

I will donate to charity if Hallman wears a speedo again.
