Another lightweight match up has been announced today, with Sherdog reporting that Dennis Hallman and Thiago Tavares have agreed to fight at UFC 150 later this summer.
A veteran of the sport, Hallman (51-14-2, 1 NC) recently rebounded from a quick TKO loss to Brian Ebersole (in which he donned his infamous Speedo) by choking out John Makdessi at UFC 140 this past December. In his latest run in the octagon, the 36-year-old has gone 3-2, his only losses coming against Ebersole and John Howard; his other victories were over Ben Saunders and Karo Parisyan.
Since getting knocked out by Shane Roller last March, Tavares (17-4-1) has won two straight. The 27-year-old Brazilian picked up a TKO over Spencer Fisher and a unanimous decision over Sam Stout to put together his longest winning streak since debuting with the promotion in 2007.
UFC 150 has not been added to the UFC’s official schedule yet, but it is rumored to take place on August 11 at an undetermined venue in Colorado.
