Dustin Hazelett to Replace Carlos Condit, Fight Paul Daley at UFC 108

Dustin HazelettDustin Hazelett has been tapped to replace an injured Carlos Condit and square off with Paul Daley at UFC 108 on January 2 in Las Vegas, according to MMAWeekly.

Condit withdrew from the matchup with Daley with an undisclosed injury earlier Wednesday, and has since told MMAWeekly that he cut his hand on a piece of sheet metal, including cutting one finger “down to the the bone”.

Hazelett (12-4) hasn’t fought since earning “Submission of the Night” honors for his win over Tamdan McCrory last November, which improved his UFC record to 5-2, withdrawing from a March matchup with Ben Saunders due to a knee injury before Karo Parisyan backed out at the last minute of planned November fight at UFC 106.

Daley (22-8-2) upset Martin Kampmann in his UFC debut in September, knocking out the welterweight contender in the opening round for his third-straight win.

Daley-Hazelett is expected to remain as the co-main event for UFC 108, which is headlined by Rashad Evans vs. Thiago Silva and also features Junior Dos Santos vs. Gilbert Yvel, Tyson Griffin vs. Jim Miller, and Joe Lauzon vs. Sam Stout.
