    Dennis Hallman just signed with the UFC again, and they said he'd be fighting in the winter unless someone pulled out with an injury…i wouldn't be surprised if they through him in there to face Condit.

    Hallman? wtf, Ii thought he lost all but his hughes fight the first time, maybe they are planning a revenge match for one of Hughes last fights, I can't imagine any other reason. Besides, he'll get fucked up by just about anybody there now in welterweight, unless I missed something and he's secretly been training with Fedor Rocky 4 style and is going to challenge GSP for the belt, yeah right :)

    Also, yeah that sucks about Lytle, he's fun to watch.

    Also feel sorry for Cote, damn that's a long time to be out, I don't know how he's gonna bounce back.
