UFC 133 Results: White Talks About Evans’ Performance, Hallman’s Trunks

Written on August 08, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Dana White disclosed all his thoughts with regards to the UFC 133 results -- Evans' performance and Hallman's disgusting short-shorts.

Just after the UFC 133 event last Saturday, UFC President – Dana White – had an interview with Karyn Bryant from MMA Heat – in which he clearly commented on some vital aspects of the show. One of which is the impressive bout performance of Rashad Evans over Tito Ortiz.

White agreed that Evans was awesome that night. “Jon Jones tweeted ‘Same old, same old’ – I don’t know what he was seeing. Same old, same old would be if Rashad came in, double leg, lay on the guy for three rounds, and won a decision,” the President stated in his interview. “That was far from the ‘same old, same old’. I’m a huge believer of ring-rust, but that might have blew my whole theory on ring-rust.”

Meanwhile, aside from praising Rashad Evans, White also commented on the trunks which Dennis Hallman wore during his fight against Brian Ebersole last Saturday. He said it was disgusting and even announced that he is serious about banning that kind of bikini bottom from the competition – not because it was too short or revealing – but because it is not appropriate to wear for a combative sport such as MMA.

MMA veterans, Dennis Hallman and Brian Ebersole, is tapped for a welterweight clash at the soon-to-come UFC 133 in Philadelphia.

Though fans are all clamoring for the upcoming UFC 129: GSP vs Shields, the rumors have gone far to UFC 133. A welterweight bout pitting Dennis Hallman and Brian Ebersole is said to be in the works for UFC 133.

Dennis Hallman was slated to fight TJ Waldburger at UFC Fight Night 24 last month. Unfortunately, he was forced to withdraw from the fight due to knee injury. Brian Ebersole, on the other hand, carries an eight-fight win streak — including notable wins from Nick Thompson, Carlos Newton and Matt Horwich.

Though it’s not yet officially announced, UFC 133 is slated to kick off on August 6, at the Wells Fargo Center – formerly Wachovia Center – in Philadelphia.

UFC Welcomes Karo Parisyan, to Face Dennis Hallman at UFC 123

Just when Dana White stated that Parisyan will no longer fight to the UFC ever again, "The Heat" was tapped to be "Superman's" kryptonite for the upcoming UFC 123 in Detroit. The lesson: never say "never."

Karo Parisyan, one-time top ten welterweight fighter, is now back to the Octagon to face Dennis Hallman at UFC 123 in Detroit. “The Heat” left UFC unceremoniously after dropping a fight against Dustin Hazelett in November 2009. His removal was followed by Dana White’s proclamation on Twitter that “He [Parisyan] will not be fighting Saturday or ever again in the UFC!” However, never doesn’t always mean never.
