It isn't really though? Seriously, how will they benefit from this in any way? I doubt they were thinking of the millions and millions of Hallman fans who would surely boycott the product if they actually existed.

And even i have trouble believing that you are buying PPVs to watch Dennis Hallman fight.

But hey.. if you are... good for you. I know i dont.

And i know what Jon Jones has accomplished in his short time is more impressive then what Hallman will EVER accomplish in his entire career.
I edited that out because I knew you'd miss the point.

The point is Jon Jones won`t still be in the game in 16 years.

Hallman gave basically his entire life to this sport, he didn't just jump on when it was already hot.

$20-30k to get him out of there hair for good? Or five times that over the next few years and a couple of prospects derailed by a veteran who caught them in a sub and exposed them.

They brought him in to hype up a Hughes rematch imo. Then that fell through and they were stuck with him.

Hallman is a knob.

Who goes and publicises that shit in in online interview? How does that help anyone involved?

I don't feel bad for him at all. I feel bad for his wife and child. Neither of which are given a chance to tell their side of the story.

Just as easily as people can paint his missus as a junked out bitch based on Hallmans opinion... I'm gonna go ahead and assume he's a wanker. Because only a wanker would chat about this online with Frank Trigg.

He really could have kept this to himself.

This comes off like he's just looking for empathy and pity.

Was his wife his concern just a few months ago when he missed weight by three lbs against Makdessi too?

If it is true that he's being screwed by judges and the system in place for dealing with disputes is awarding custody of his daughter to his wife with drug abuse issues.

If you agree that mma judges made bad decisions at times and something should be done about it, are you going to criticize people who point that out on the basis that talking about it and people being aware of it can't have an effect?

How does someone like Hallman fix things without some type of public disclosure?

Something that doesn't involve publicly slandering the mother of his child would be a good start.

He tried to set up a surprise "treatment" for her, for fecks sake. We all know that means fecking rehab. No wonder she flipped. I would fecking flip if my missus booked me in for a week at some shithole.

Its just the bitter words of some asshole who's wife doesn't love him anymore and he cant handle it, so he talks loads of shit about her. Just like one million assholes I've had the misfortune of bumping into over my long and cranky life.
