Left without a fight recently when Karo Parisyan pulled out of his scheduled fight with him at the last minute, Dustin Hazelett now has a fight again. He has verbally agreed to replace an injured Carlos Condit at UFC 108 and face Paul Daley.

I think I'll pick Hazelette......mostly because I'm biased, although Hazelette does have a pretty good chance to get the submission.

Really, harder to pick now? I think its easier IMO. I think Condit would smash Hazellet. I mean Hazellet has better BJJ but I think Condit has better wrestling even though neither have elite takedown ability. I just liked Condits ability on the feet better. plus the long layoff for Hazellet. I think Paul's going to knock Dustin out. Should be a pretty exciting sick fight though!!!! Can't wait!!!

Damn Condit dodged a bullet here. No disrespect but Daley was going to KHTFO!!!! His fight with Ellenberger showed his weakness......his chin! IMO Hazlet has better striking than Condit and will use that to set up his TD's. Then in the imortal words of Kevin Ferguson! Daley is a DunDada!!!!!!!! Hazelet via RNC 2nd rnd.

I think that I would pick anyone over Paul Daley. Not necessarily because of his abilities (though I do think he's overrated), but because I cannot stand fighters with his attitude. His latest rant but him up there with Josh Koshcheck and Brock Lesnar, zero respect=bad for the sport.

If McLovin can get the fight to the ground,he's going to win.That simple.McLovin makes really good grapplers look bad on the ground,and Paul Daley isn't even a good grappler to begin with.

First round submission for McLovin.Something exotic probably.

Brian.

Daley has the power to end this fight at any moment, and Dustin has the cunning to pull off a sub without getting the takedown at all.

Hard fight for me to pick.

Hazelett should win this. Unlike Kampmann Hazelett is a smart fighter and will take Daley down and sub him.

I think it's easier as well, for but the complete opposite reason than you have.

Daley's ground game is doo-doo. Hazelet will find a way to get this one to the ground and will sub him once he's there

I was just about to post the same thing. Only thing that worries me a bit is Dustin's ring rust, but I think he knows he has to get the fight to the ground asap. Can't wait to see McLovin in the octagon again

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.
