It looks as if one less fight will be aired on tomorrow night’s UFC on FX 5 card, as lightweight Dennis Hallman failed to make weight for his fight with Thiago Tavares.
According to UFC officials, Hallman came in at 7lbs. over the 156lbs. weight limit. His opponent Tavares then ultimately decided to turn down the fight.
This is not the first time Hallman has failed to make weight, he also came in overweight for his fight against John Makdessi at UFC 140. Although Hallman won that fight, if he continues to miss weight, his future with the UFC looks bleak.
