Hazelett is gonna have some ring rust, Daley should win this by KO or TKO in the 1st or 2nd round.

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.



Stop being such a baby. It's all to sell his fights and the sport. How exactly is it bad for the sport that he talks crap to a guy he was supposed to fight that pulled out. It's called controversy and it makes things interesting.

BJ Penn said GSP had no heart and was a quitter, it's the same concept....it's all psychological and part of the sport.

Hazelett is a great replacement. He's a class act and is all about making fights exciting for the fans.

And no, Daley was not selling tickets, he was being a shite talking arrogant prik. His choice comments came after Condit pulled out. This is why Hazelett's tap out of Daley is going to be especially sweet.

If Paul Daley's smart he'll tap before he hits the ground.

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.



Agreed, wonder what the odds are on Hazzlett winning by can-opener are?

Hazelett will get blasted out while trying to get a takedown.

I think its easier to pick now tbh. Dustins wrestling is closer in comparison to Kampmans than Condits, I cant see him getting the takedown. I dont think he has a solid chin either, one solid shot and thats all she wrote.

Dustins a crafty dude though, and he can box so if he sets up his shots, or pulls guard then he could get the sub. I dont like this fight, I really like both guys and id rather not see either loose.

Hazelett is a stud on the ground. Round 1 submission.

I like both these fighters. I'm gonna take Daley this time around because last time I listened to everyone here saying he didn't have a chance against Kampmann, and it cost me money, and a pick. Hazelett's gonna have to show me on this one.

I think Daley could just overwhelm Dustin while he tries to set up his game. He's so good on his feet.

Yea I like this fight because its going to be competitive but I think Dustin's not going to be able to Get the fight to the ground. Everyone knows how this fight is probably going to go one of two ways and Daley has fought better wrestlers and been able to avoid take downs. Like him or not the dude is the best striker in the WW division and has some good take down defense so Daley is always going to be a tough fight for anyone.

On the picks section it has Daley fighting Drew McFedries? Am I missing something or is that just an error?
