Wasn't sure if this was posted yet, did a quick search and didn't see it... pretty sad situation. I can see why Dana White paid him his win and show money after hearing all of that. Hope Hallman can get everything together and get back.

Poor guy.

It's amazing how powerful of a hold a drug addiction can have on people.

Big ups on Dana and the UFC brass. What other org would pay their fighter their show + win money in this type of situation.

This.

It doesn't even seem like UFC does this kinda stuff to get good PR either...they really take care of their employees even if it's at the cost of business.

Yeah the UFC does good things pretty often. One of their greatest traits.

I hope things get better for Hallman and big props to the UFC for looking out for their guy. Hopefully we can see Dennis work his way back the UFC. Hes a solid midcarder with some huge wins.

All fighters from 151 were contractually obligated to get paid for their fights if they weren't booked on the next show. Just like how the UFC has to pay Thiago Tavares and Yves Edwards if they don't fight on the next show. I would have given the UFC props if they didn't cut Hallman and Brenneman as both cases are turning out to be kind sketchy.

Holy crap. What a situation. Really makes you think though. Really shows that these top athletes that seem to be above everyone are really just normal people with problems like everyone here.

Really glad to hear that Dana and the UFC got him his money. Some things are just more important than showing up for a fight even if it is your job.

You could make the argument that the UFC does this kind of thing because it reflects well on them. Good publicity.

And if that's the case, judging from the posts in this thread, it's working.

When the UFC does nice things, it's nice, but they do some pretty outrageously awful things to fighters too and it's important to remember that as well.

But in the case of this story, good on them and I hope Dennis gets his kid back.
