Tony Ferguson Vs. Dennis Hallman Set For UFC On Fox 3

via <a href=""></a>

Ultimate Fighter 13 winner Tony Ferguson will look to continue his impressive run at UFC on Fox 3 when he meets a veteran who has won three out of his last four bouts. shares the news:

A second lightweight scrap has been added to the UFC on FOX fight card recently announced for May 5 in East Rutherford, NJ. Lightweights Dennis "Superman" Hallman and TUF 13 winner Tony "El Cucuy" (which translates to "The Boogeyman") Ferguson have verbally agreed to the matchup.

Ferguson is currently 3-0 in the UFC and 2-0 at lightweight. He last stepped in the cage at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale in early December, where he defeated Yves Edwards by unanimous decision. On the other side you have Dennis Hallman, who picked up a quick submission victory over John Makdessi at UFC 140 last month. Hallman is probably most famous for submitting Matt Hughes twice back in the day, and the short shorts he wore to the cage at UFC 133 that have since been banned by the organization.

The only other bouts currently scheduled for the card, which will take place in East Rutherford, NJ, are Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller and John Dodson vs. Darren Uyenoyama.
