Brian Ebersole vs Dennis Hallman odds for UFC 133 fight on Aug. 6

127 fights.

That's how many bouts Brian Ebersole (47-14-1) and Dennis Hallman (50-13-2) have between them in their respective mixed martial arts careers (enough to make them legitimate tough guys). However, throughout all those battles, not once have they crossed paths ... until now.

The "Bad Boy" and "Superman" will finally hook 'em up at the upcoming UFC 133: "Evans vs. Ortiz" pay-per-view (PPV) event to be held this Saturday night (August 6) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

And with both combatants carrying their respective credentials from the school of hard knocks, the oddsmakers are having trouble making up their minds, locking each fighter into a -115 betting line.

Ebersole will ride into "The City of Brotherly Love" on an eight-fight win streak, including spoiling Chris Lytle's welterweight title aspirations in his Octagon debut back on Feb. 27.

The longtime veteran drew a tough match-up in his debut with the world's largest fight promotion but made the most of it, knocking off "Lights Out" and winning "Fight of the Night" in the process.

His reward is a bout against the one and only "Superman."

Hallman has been building his reputation as a knockaround guy since the late 90s, with his most notable wins coming against UFC Hall of Famer and former Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes.

The American boasts 33 career submission wins, two of which came at the expense of Hughes. And although there were brief calls for a third and final fight between the two as their careers seemingly wind to a close, that notion never picked up enough steam to come to fruition.

Instead, Hallman will square off against Ebersole in a scrap of two welterweights who deserve a lot more respect than they're getting.

Ready for war?
