MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighter Dennis “Superman” Hallman caused quite a stir Saturday night when he walked into the UFC ring wearing a too-tight pair of Speedo trucks to take on opponent Brian Ebersole.
UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) President Dana White claims later he was totally embarrassed watching the fight with, as he put it “Hallman’s junk practically in my face.” In fact, he was so offended that after Ebersole beat Hallman in the fight, White rewarded him (Ebersole) with a $70,000 bonus for “getting those horrific shorts out of the ring.”
Asked later about his decision to wear the Speedo trunks, Hallman had this to say “You know what offends me? Guys who shoot first and ask questions later. If Dana would have just come to me and asked me what was up, I would have told him the truth,” said Hallman.
Hallman claims he had a swim date later after the fight on Saturday and decided to just wear his swim trunks into the arena in case the fight ran a little over.
“Don’t you just hate it,” said Hallman, “when people assume things about you based solely on your appearance? Dana is disappointed in his crew. Well, big boo hoo. I’m disappointed in Dana,” said Hallman as he left to get an after-fight spa treatment.
