Dennis Hallman vs T.J. Waldburger possible for UFC Fight Night 24 in Seattle


This looks like a job for "Superman." 

Dennis Hallman will return to action for yet another fight when he takes on T.J. Waldburger at UFC Fight Night 24, which is set to invade the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington on March 26, according to

Does it seem like Hallman has been around forever?

Well, that's because he has. At the ripe old age of 35, "Superman" is a veteran of nearly 60 professional fights spanning all the way back to 1997. 

He's appeared sporadically in the UFC over the years, compiling a record of three wins to go with four losses. However, Hallman will always be able to hang his hat on what he is perhaps most famous for -- two first round submission victories over former Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes.

Having won two in a row, and both fighters careers seemingly winding to a close, some fans have called for a third and final fight between the two. However, nearly everyone except the fans are against it, and that's been made evident by the decision to book the Washington native against Waldburger.

"TJ" has followed slightly in the footsteps of his counterpart at the March event, having been extremely active in his young fighting career. 

At just 22 years of age, the Grapplers Lair member has fought 18 times with a solid amount of success. Enough to earn him a spot on the card when the UFC came to his home state of Texas for Fight Night 22 in September of last year (2010).

A unanimous decision win over David Mitchell led to his being asked to come back for the promotion to take on Hallman in his backyard. 

Old guard vs young lion, anyone?

UFC Fight Night 24 will mark the organization's first trip to Seattle and will air live on Spike TV. The feature fight of the evening will see Tito Ortiz in what may prove to be his last stand against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
