Ryan Madigan replaces Hazelett at UFC 96

An undisclosed injury has forced Dustin Hazelett (12-4 MMA, 5-2 UFC) out of a bout with Ben Saunders (7-0-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC). UFC newcomer Ryan Madigan (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who recently signed a four-fight deal with the organization, will take his spot on the card.

UFC 96 takes place March 7 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, and features a main event between Quinton Jackson and Keith Jardine.

The Ohio-based North American Allied Fight Series, an organization in which Madigan previously competed, recently announced the deal.

Madigan, based out of Cuyahoga Falls (near Akron), is a former kickboxer who previously competed in the World Combat League. His transition into MMA has been a smooth one; Madigan is now 5-0 with five stoppages since turning pro in 2006.

Saunders, a cast member from "The Ultimate Fighter 6," has posted three consecutive victories since joining the UFC. The list includes a decision victory over Dan Barrera, a submission victory over Ryan Thomas, and a brutal TKO of Brandon Wolff in his most recent fight at December UFC Fight Night 16 event.

Hazelett declined to comment on the injury when contacted by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) over the weekend.

Saunders should win this easily.

Doh, love watching Hazelett. Will be interesting to see if the Saunders domination was a fluke.
