UFC welterweight Dustin Hazelett (12-4 MMA, 5-2 UFC), who's won three "Fight Night" bonuses totaling $105,000 in his past two fights, will return to action in his home state of Ohio for UFC 96.

His opponent for the March 7 event at Nationwide Arena in Columbus will likely be Ben Saunders (7-0-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC). Link

This is a great fight.I think if McLovin works on his sweeps he should be ok. I don't think Saunders is going to have any reach advantage in this one. So his inside game is what he'll need to get him through.

I'm hoping Hazelett can get it to the floor once Saunder's starts to work his clinch game. Once that happens...It's pretzel time.

I definitely would love to see this fight, both of these guys are up in comers in the division and they both have looked very impressive as of late. Hopefully this fight does happen.

McLovin is taking this one. Saunders won't have much of a reach advantage and as we saw in his fight with Koscheck, Hazelett has some striking too. i'm taking Hazelett by Sub.

This is a great match up! Good way to really test Ben as I thin Hazelett has already secured his spot in the div. I gotta go with the consesus here and pick Hazelett by sub as well, 2nd round.

awesome fight and a tough one for me to call as I like both fighters about the same but I guess I could see Hazelett pulling off the win somehow

Standup I give it to Saunders, on the ground McLovin, I think he can get it there eventually and submit him if he dosnt get careless striking.
