After suffering a torn ACL in his right leg prior to a scheduled UFC 96 bout with Ben Saunders, UFC welterweight Dustin Hazelett said it could be up to a year before he returns to competition.

Hazelett discussed the injury today with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Hazelett (12-4 MMA, 5-2 UFC), a fast-rising prospect who's 5-1 in his past six UFC fights, hopes he'll get a fight in by year's end but admits it could be early 2010 before his next bout takes place.

For sure. He's easily one of my favorite guys to watch. His work from the rubber guard is like poetry. And the guy is like an armbar virtuoso. I'm hoping for a speedy recovery. Good luck McLovin', hope to see you back soon.
