Dustin Hazelett: "He has never been submitted; I like a challenge"

New Dustin Hazelett interview.

On his knee...

"The rehab went really quick. I was ahead of schedule on everything and back to training in 5 months. The knee feels great. I couldn't have asked for a better surgery and rehab on it."

On his upcoming fight with Karo Parisyan...

"I'm preparing for the best Karo that we've seen. In his last fight against Kim, his biggest thing had always been his conditioning was weak, but his grappling was always good and he is really strong. But his conditioning and endurance had always been his weak point and in his fight with Kim, he didn't look like he had got as tired as he normally does, so I think he's taking it more seriously now. with almost a year layoff for him, that would give him a lot of time to work on stuff that he needed to work on, so I'm assuming he was using his time off like I used mine and that's to come back better and stronger and that's what I'm preparing for."

"I would imagine that he would try to throw me at some point and take me to the ground and not be afraid or tentative or anything else. That's kind of what I'm looking forward to because he is a really good grappler who has never been submitted before and I like a challenge. I'm really excited about this fight. I think it's going to be a really good fight."

"A lot of his fights, he's been put in submissions and he's been able to work his way out. The difference between finishing a submission and not finishing a submission on a guy that good is just the tiniest of details. Anything is possible and I believe I do have what it takes to submit him, but on the flip side of that, I believe he has the ability to fight off being submitted by me; it just depends on whether he makes a mistake or not or whether I make a mistake or not."

Glad to finaly see Hazlet back. He's had some great fights, including that amazing fight with Tamden McCrory (one of the best grappling mathces you'll ever see).
Same Goes for Karo. Been a while for him, and he usually puts on a good show.

Can't wait for this matchup. I predict Hazlet takes it. He's always improving..
