Superman Returns at UFC 106

Dennis HallmanDennis “Superman” Hallman, the founder of cowboy karate, is rumored to be making his Octagon return against John “Doomsday” Howard at UFC 106 in Las Vegas.

Although no contract has been signed, sources close to the event claimed both fighters have verbally agreed to the contest according to a recent report by MMAWeekly.com.

Hallman returns to the UFC for the first time since 2005. He has gone a total of 7-1 since his last UFC appearance, back in UFC 55. He’s a proven 12-year veteran in mixed martial arts, boasting a record of 41-12-2. His most notable wins are two submission victories over future hall of famer Matt Hughes, in which neither fight went past the 0:30 second mark.

Howard is coming off a split decision victory over Tamdan McCrory last month at UFC 101. He is currently on a five fight win streak and 12-4 overall.

UFC 106 is expected to take place Nov. 21 in Las Vegas with a heavyweight title fight between champ Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin.

  • Nice to see Hallman back. Hopefully we can see him and Hughes go at it again. Maybe Hughes can make it out of the first round this time!

    I guess it’s good to see him back, but I was never much of a fan of his really, aside from him shutting Hughes’ mouth anytime they clashed. I can see Matt wanting an immediate fight, but it would really be a bad idea for Joe Silva, since Hughes could quite potentially lose, and Matt is still an extremely big draw for fans casual and hardcore alike. There’s no sense putting Hughes in a fight he could lose star power that the UFC wouldn’t make a whole lot of money off of.

  • BigDave says:

    I would love to see Hallman beat Hughes again. It would bring a smile to my face for sure and i’m not even a Hallman fan I just like watching Hughes lose.

    If Hallman gets past John Howard, which in all likelihood he won’t, then I think they would definitely look to set up Hughes vs Hallman III. Although meaningless to rankings, Hughes will have a boner over the idea of avenging two fights he really should have never lost – and its likely Joe Silva and Dana White will comply with his inevitable requests.
    Hughes hates to lose and, at this point in his career, there firstly aren’t many match ups in the WW division that are guaranteed wins for him and secondly there is no real motivation for Hughes to accept dangerous fights against hungry, up and coming welterweights. So Hallman fits the bill perfectly.
    It should be mentioned however that Mike Swick recently made a statement on the internet (his Twitter site) regarding his next fight and mentioned Matt Hughes’ name as a potential opponent. I personally think Hughes should take that fight should the opportunity arise; Swick being one of the few highly ranked (ish) welterweights that Hughes could hold down for three rounds without the power to knock him out on the feet.

    im still not sure of the reason for the ufc contracting dennis. it wasnt to keep him away from any other promotions cos he isnt big enough. It certainly wasnt to boost the ufc ww division, cos he really isnt good enough any more. it wasnt to be a ppv draw cos no fucker outside of hardcore fans would know him. so they got this veteran dude to fight on the undercards? surely there are some young guys SOMEWHERE in the world that would have been better for the ufc?

  • fanoftna33 says:

    I have never seen dennis fight but I am a fan of anybody who tappes Hughes out even once, let alone twice. How many times during the broadcast do you think Rogan will mention that Hallman tapped out Hughes? I say at least 4 times.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    i’m trying to remember where i saw their first fight, i think matt actually got choked out and didnt make it to tapping. it was in a square cage if i remember rightly. no idea where i have seen it. second fight was funny, 20 seconds!!

  • fanoftna33 says:

    I am going to youtube it tonight and hope someone has it out.

  • xtreme_machine says:
