Hallman opened strong by taking Ebersole down, looking for a Rear Naked Choke submission. Hallman was very close to tap out Ebersole, but the man and the arrow managed to survive the onslaught. Once Ebersole freed himself from Hallman’s BJJ, it was a short way to the finish. Brian Ebersole went berserk with punches and elbow from the top, that quickly stunned Hallman and forced the referee to stop the action.
“Bad Boy” is not 2-0 in the UFC, with victories over Chris Lytle and Dennis Hallman. Rory MacDonald could be a great opponent for Ebersole, who looks to get himself into the mix for a shot at the title.
