I'd have to go with Hazelett just because he's the more complete fighter. there is no question in my mind though that Aoki is a much better BJJ practitioner.

I'd go with Aoki via UD. I think he'd latch on and stay tight the whole time.

ill go with aoki, but hazelett has a pretty decent shot in this one if it stays on the feet obviously.

I'll gladly take the Tanner beard. But as far as the fight goes, I think Aoki would win but Hazelett probably can go the distance.

Aoki would gt this to the ground and control him en route to a UD. this would look similar to JZ vs Aoki 2.

I'd go with Hazelett by KO, Hazelett is good enough on the ground not to get caught, and he knowns the rubber guard pretty well himself. He'd have a big reach advantage, i'd say he takes him out in the second.

I would go with Aoki via late sub. Aoki would probably pull guard and when he latches on you're stuck with him. Dustin gas great jiujitsu, but he's not adverse to being submitted. Granted it was a couple years ago that he was submitted by Tony DeSouza via kimura (inventor of the Peruvian necktie).I think a really high level BJJ guy like Aoki is going to be too slick for him.

Hazelett has some huge limbs for Aoki to attack onto and Aoki has shown he can fight much bigger BJJ guys quite competently.

I think Aoki would win a UD, but it would be a very fun grappling match to watch.

Hazelett is too big for Aoki and thats why he would probably lose. He can probably only get it down by pulling guard lol I dont see any flying armbars in this one. I would even give Hazelett a slight JJ advantage, via the cage and size. Look what Hellboy just did to Aoki and Hellboy isnt as good as Hazelett on the ground or as strong, probably better than Hellboy standing too, granted Hazelett's a WW.

This would be good at first but an easy pick of Hazelett by TKO.

I could see that or it looks like JZ / Aoki 1 where Aoki chickened out from a Legal elbow in a fight which he should have lost.

ill take hellboy in a stand up match against mclovin anyday, and i dont think his jits is better than aokis either. i see what youre getting at with the cage, but aoki would stick to dustin once he got ahold of him.
