Hallman vs. Tavares moved to Sept.

A lightweight bout between Dennis Hallman and Thiago Tavares, originally scheduled for UFC 150, has been rescheduled for “UFC 151: Henderson vs. Jones.”

MMAjunkie.com delivered the news earlier today.

The bout that would have taken place in August is now set for September 1 at the Mandalay Bay Events center in Las Vegas. Light heavyweight champion Jon Jones meets Dan Henderson in the main event of the card.

Hallman last competed at UFC 140, defeating John Makdessi via submission. The win was a bit of redemption for the longtime veteran, who was defeated by Brian Ebersole at UFC 133.

Meanwhile, Tavares is on a two-fight winning streak after a knockout loss to Shane Roller at “UFC on Versus 3.” His streak includes wins over Sam Stout and Spencer Fisher.
