A lightweight bout between veteran Dennis Hallman (51-14-2 MMA, 4-5 UFC) and "The Ultimate Fighter 13" winner Tony Ferguson (13-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) has been added to UFC on FOX 3.
UFC officials announced the fight late Monday.
UFC on FOX 3 takes place May 5 at IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J. The main card airs on FOX, and the prelims are expected to air on FUEL TV.
It's not clear where Hallman vs. Ferguson will be situated on the night's lineup.
Hallman returns to action after a quick and efficient first-round submission victory over John Makdessi at UFC 140 in December. The victory was Hallman's third in his past four fights, which also included UFC wins over Ben Saunders (decision) and Karo Parisyan (TKO). In fact, the 36-year-old has in the midst of a career resurgence with an 8-2 mark over the past five-and-a-half years.
He'll now serve as another stiff test for Ferguson, who recently earned a unanimous-decision victory over veteran Yves Edwards for his third straight UFC win and sixth consecutive victory overall. After knocking out Ramsey Nijem to win "TUF 14," the California-based Ferguson broke the jaw of Aaron Riley for his second UFC win.
