I disagree here, I think Daleys standup has the edge here. I think he'd outstrike Thiago.

matt brown would be a good fight although i'm not sure brown is ready for daley. or even a fight with the stun gun if he isn't hurt.

which ww isn't scheduled and injury free btw?

I can see that happening. Although I think Alves would win, I am by no means counting Daley out at all. He could definitely pull it off.

Having anyone step up with a couple weeks notice is going to be really tough. Especially over the Christmas period, I'm not sure if many fighters would be willing to pack up their plans for the holidays with their families to take a fight with Semtex at such short notice.

Ahh, damn this is screwed up!

Favourite Fighters:

Dan Hardy
Paul Daley
Georges St-Pierre
Nick Diaz
Cain Velasquez
Frank Mir
Demian Maia
All the British MMA guys
And... Fedor!

Alves would never take this fight on such short notice. He probably would have trouble making weight with such little time and he is so far ahead of Daley in the rankings there is no point in risking a loss because of a poor training camp.

Thiago Alves was suppose to fight Jon Fitch this saturday but he's still recovering from a torn PCL tear so I wouldn't expect to see him again till a good little way into 2010.

Yeahhh that'd be sweet, I've been wanting this fight for a while but I think Semtex will get beat the same way Rumble did.

Comes across as a prick there, but he seemed humble after the kampman fight. Dunno what to make of it.

Give him Anthony Johnson, would make for a great fight.

Dustin Hazelett verbally agrees to replace Carlos Condit, face Paul Daley at UFC 108

The UFC has received plenty of practice in booking replacement fighters for the upcoming "UFC 108: Silva vs. Evans" event, so today's loss of Carlos Condit in the evening's co-feature slot was no problem.

Dustin Hazelett (12-4 MMA, 5-2 UFC) has verbally agreed to fill the open role and face British slugger Paul Daley (22-8-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) on the Jan. 2 event in Las Vegas.

Bout agreements have yet to be signed.

News of the new agreement was first issued by MMAWeekly, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since verified the report with sources close to the event.

The bout is still expected to be featured as the evening's co-main event and air live on pay per view.

The contest will be Hazelett's first since a November 2008 win over Tamdan McCrory. "McLovin" was forced into a year-long hiatus due to a knee injury, and a UFC 106 bout in November was scratched when opponent Karo Parisyan pulled out for, according to UFC president Dana White, "a laundry list of reasons."

Hazelett provides a threat on the ground for Daley, as the 23-year-old has earned nine of his 12 career wins by submission. Hazelett has also earned back-to-back "Submission of the Night" honors in his past two UFC appearances.

Meanwhile, Daley will provide the "Striker" portion of the classic "Striker vs. Grappler" matchup.

Following his UFC 103 TKO win over Martin Kampmann, Daley told MMAjunkie.com he was more than willing to repeat the performance of his promotional debut against anyone the UFC offered.

"I'll do it again, and I don't care who's standing in front of me," Daley said. "I'm just going to be the same fighter and go out there to finish people."

The 26-year-old Team Rough House product has won 10 of his past 12 contests, and "Semtex" has earned 17 of his 22 career wins by knockout or TKO.

Interesting fight here, the classic grappler v striker. I think Daley takes this, his stand up is world class and i think he will do enough to keep it standing long enough for him to tko/ko Dustin
