A new bout has been added to the UFC on Fox 3 fight card with Ultimate Fighter winner Tony Ferguson facing Dennis Hallman.
UFC officials announced the new match-up through their Twitter account on Monday.
Since winning the 13th season of The Ultimate Fighter, Ferguson has become a solid prospect in the UFC’s lightweight division.
Winning both of his fights since the show’s finale, Ferguson continues to improve with each passing bout and hopes to move his six-fight win streak to seven when he returns in May.
Facing Ferguson in New Jersey will be veteran fighter Dennis Hallman.
With nearly 70 fights to his record, Hallman has just about seen it all and done it all in his long MMA career. The former UFC lightweight contender returned to the division for his last fight, but missed weight before dismantling John Makdessi at UFC 140 in Toronto.
Promising to never miss weight again, Hallman will try to show that to the UFC brass when he faces Ferguson at UFC on Fox 3 on May 5.
The UFC on Fox 3 card takes place at the IZOD Center in New Jersey on May 5 and will air live on Fox.
