    I take Hazelett by head kick KO in the 2nd. He is better at everything than Burkman.

    According to some other sites Burkman says if this fight goes to a decision he will retire.

    Burkman won’t retire, he’s just not a finisher. And he needs to accept that.

    Burkman will win, Hazelett I think while a great fighter, has a long long ways to go and I do not believe that he has what it takes and posess the knowledge to hang with Burkman. I am not taking sides for either fighter, I sicerely don’t like either one of them actually but I have seen their fights and am stating a fact.

    Hazelett is a better striker and if Burkman takes him down he’s in even more trouble.

    hey # 6 how can you state a fact ,when the fight hasn’t even played out yet..
    hazelett always finish his fights .the only fight that went to a descision was his fight with a gracie.and he was victorious ! his loss with koshcheck wasnt from lack of skills ,he got caught .he dominated koshceck,first round ..
    burkman dont stand a chance.this isnt fact .just a personal oppinion!

    Hazelett Is going to tuff for a long time. I think he got alot of experience in his last fight and I think it will carry over into this one. As stated by Walker he dominated Koscheck in the first round. He learned alot I dont think he will get cought off gaurd in this one. Also like Walker, Just my opinion..
