Quoteworthy:

"I take fights as they come. I don’t really like to put too much into a defined strategy. I like to see what my opponent gives me, but I have been working very hard on my stand-up, so I think fighting someone like Daley is a really good test for me. If I can test myself against him it will let me know where I stand among the strikers in the welterweight division. Most of his losses have come by way of submission and that is my strong suit, so that’s where my advantage will be. If I can get a win here, it will propel me up the rankings quite a bit."

Submission specialist Dustin Hazelett could be heading for disaster when he clashes with feared striker Paul Daley at UFC 108 this Saturday (Jan. 2) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. "McLovin'" is known for his ridiculous ground game but has also steadily improved his striking to help make him a more well-rounded mixed martial artist. Is throwing leather with "Semtex" a good way to test your hands? Or a fast-track to kissing canvas? Hazelett is confident he has the skills to make this his night -- anyone else in agreement?
