Whatever happened to Dustin "McLovin" Hazelett?

Dude's easily top 5 as far as being an exciting fighter goes (In MY oppinion, as I love the ground game). He's beaten good guys in dominant fashion. He's still listed on ufc.com as one of their fighters.

WHERE IS HE? Are there maybe some news I've missed? Last time we saw him was on ufc 91 where he debuted the inverted armbar off the omoplata submission.

Official Leader of the Demian Maia Subway Station!

He was going to fight Ben Saunders at UFC 96, but had to pull out due to injury.

I haven't heard word since then.

Still injured as far as I know, not sure when his return will be. I think he is a contender.

One of my guys to give GSP a run for his money.

Last thing I heard (Back in March) he was out with an unnamed injury. I'd love to see him back in the octagon, submitting more Welterweights.

Besides from Demian Maia, I'd say he has the best pure Jiu-Jitsu in the UFC (remember his submission over Josh Burkman? That was sweet).

I'm not a big fan.

He could have done some serious damage to Tamdan's arm.

No, I'd say Gonzaga and Penn both have better pure BJJ. But, yeah, his submissions are pretty slick.

Well all submissions COULD HAVE done serious damage to fighter "x", but thats the whole point of a submission. To make the opponent 'submit'.

It was a torn ACL, and was going to keep him out almost a year, soonest fight possible late '09/early '10.

you're posting that on an MMA board?

There are no rules concerning arm bars, inverted or not as far as I'm aware.

MMA isn't a tickling contest, the guy was in danger for a long time on the ground. Tamdan can submit at anytime and the fight will be over.
