MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today learned from sources close to the event that knee injury suffered in training has forced Hallman to bow out of a planned matchup with T.J. Waldburger (13-5 MMA, 1-0 UFC).

Hallman’s replacement foe has not yet been determined.

UFC Fight Night 24 takes place March 26 at KeyArena in Seattle and airs live on Spike TV. A light-heavyweight tilt between Phil Davis and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira headlines the card.
