Brian Ebersole (pictured) returns to the UFC Octagon this weekend to take on veteran submission specialist Dennis Hallman.

During Wednesday’s Afternoon Press Box, Darren and the boys spoke with UFC welterweight Brian Ebersole who takes on Dennis Hallman at UFC 133 this Saturday in Philadelphia.

Ebersole (47-14-1, 1 NC) shared his thoughts on Hallman and how the two match-up, he talked about his short notice, yet successful, UFC debut against Chris Lytle at UFC 127 in February and he discussed the fine art of shaving designs into chest hair, an art, by the way, Mr. Ebersole is quite adept at.

In addition to talking with Ebersole, the guys discussed and gave their predictions on the UFC 133 main event between Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans and talked about Fedor Emelianenko‘s TKO loss to Dan Henderson and his release from the Strikeforce roster. All this and much more!
