Brian Ebersole received a bonus of 70,000 and after his victory against Hallman at UFC 133. His welterweight bout was marked not only by Ebersole coming back wins, but also by choice Hallman tight trunks, blue speedometer instead of the longer, loose shorts typical mixed martial arts.
Ebersole extra money was a reward for “getting the horrible television shorts as soon as possible,” said UFC President Dana White. “He deserves every penny of the 70,000 that did tonight.”
They draw attention to the tricks tend to be the province of Ebersole. As he made his UFC debut in February, Ebersole on Saturday wore on his chest hair shaved in the shape of an arrow pointing up.
The choice of costumes for Hallman was unusual for him, Ebersole said.
“I was a little surprised he tried to beat me at my own game, humor and showmanship and all that,” Ebersole said. “I know he’s been here for long. I have not seen him do anything like that.”
Hallman-style swimsuit will not be allowed back in the UFC, White said. He elaborated on the subject with a group of reporters after the press conference after Saturday’s fight:
Q: If Dennis Hallman had won, what have you done?
White: Oh, my God.
I am seriously (ticked) off at the guys who work for us, which allowed him to go out with those things. I’ve never been so ashamed of being in the UFC as it was then.
Q: Do you really have some sort of dress code?
We’re going to do now. (Laughter reporters) we do now.
You know what I thought we had? I had some sense, you know what I mean? At least a little common sense.
That was a very bad time. That horrified me.
Q: In the old days of the UFC some guys wearing stockings wrestling. Is this really so different?
Means of struggle and what I saw tonight is – you know what, maybe that was a speedometer. But trunks were not designed to have a cup the size of a helmet stuffed in them. I think he was exaggerating the cup too.
That was bad. It was as bad as bad can get.
Ebersole (48-14-1, a non-contest) save Hallman (43-14-2, one no contest) with a TKO in the first round but survived until the early problems.
The early advantage went after Hallman grabbed Ebersole and climbed on his back. A senior MMA fighter, Hallman was planted in the back of his opponent for a few minutes while looking for a rear-n*ked choke.
“I was worried about the glass and worried about his uniform malfunction,” joked Ebersole. “No, I knew it was good there.”
Hallman lost his position when he tried to transition to full mount and Ebersole back. Hallman threatened with a guillotine choke, but Ebersole quickly escaped and began a gradual assault of punches and elbows that finally broke through Hallman attempts to hide. The fight was stopped with 32 seconds left in the first round.
Unlike other long veterans have been good for Ebersole. In February, the stunning victory against Chris “Lights Out” Lytle, who has over 50, fights on his resume.
