Hallman impresses in March Badness preliminary card bout

Originally posted on

The evening kicked off with a welterweight contest between 12-year veteran Dennis Hallman (40-12-2) and Danny Ruiz (5-4). A quick affair, Ruiz offered little for his veteran opponent.

Hallman shot in immediately, and though Ruiz defended two efforts, "Superman" eventually worked the fight to the floor from the clinch. Once on the mat, Hallman worked from Ruiz's half-guard to side control. As Ruiz looked to roll and escape Hallman instead scrambled to back position and looked to finish the fight.

A left arm slid under Ruiz's chin, and Hallman secured the hold by grabbing a Gable grip with his right hand. Ruiz resisted briefly but tapped at 1:50 of the opening frame.

Despite seeing action for the first time in 16 months, Hallman won his fourth straight contest. Ruiz drops his fourth consecutive outing.
