Dustin Hazelett Released From The UFC

MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

Following his third straight stoppage defeat, jiu-jitsu specialist Dustin Hazelett (12-7) has officially been cut from the UFC.

Hazelett recently went to war with Mark Bocek at UFC 124, but within two-and-a-half minutes, Bocek beat Hazelett at his own game, submitting his lanky challenger with a tight triangle choke.

Prior to the Bocek bout, Hazelett was stopped by Rick Story (TKO) at UFC 117, and prior to that, Paul Daley turned him into a human punching bag at UFC 108 en route to a destructive first round knockout.

Where Hazelett goes from here is unknown, but Bellator Fighting Championships and Strikeforce look to be viable options.
