– Karo Parisyan (18-5 MMA, 8-3 UFC) and Dustin Hazelett (12-4 MMA, 5-2 UFC) have verbally agreed to face off at UFC 106. Parisyan is coming off of a suspension, stemming from his UFC 94 bout with Dong Hyun Kim, while Hazelett is coming off of ACL surgery. Hazelett is returning earlier than expected, as he stated the following in April.
“I’m out for probably a year, If everything goes perfect, I may be able to get one (fight) in before the end of the year. But I just don’t want to rush it and tear [my ACL] again like ‘Shogun’ (Rua) did.”
