Hendricks in for Hallman at UFN

Johny Hendricks replaces Dennis Hallman against TJ Waldburger at UFC Fight Night on March 26
UFC President Dana White announced today that there’s another change to March 26th’s UFC Fight Night event in Seattle, with welterweight Dennis Hallman joining Duane Ludwig on the injury list.

"Dennis Hallman is out of UFC Fight Night March 26 with a knee injury,” said White. “Powerful wrestler Johny Hendricks has verbally agreed to replace him against submission specialist TJ Waldburger in a preliminary fight."

Hendricks, a four-time All-American wrestler from Oklahoma State University, is looking to bounce back from his first pro loss last December, a hard-fought decision to Rick Story. Submission specialist Waldburger will look to make it two in a row later this month.

Earlier Saturday, Ludwig was forced to withdraw from his bout against Amir Sadollah, with James Wilks stepping in to face his fellow TUF winner in Seattle.
