The way UFC President Dana White sees it, it’s not Dustin Hazelett‘s fault that Karo Parisyan pulled out of the pair’s anticipated UFC 106 showdown with a “laundry list of excuses”, and accordingly the limb twisting submission wizard will not be punished financially.
White recently made the announcement that Hazelett will receive all of his show and win money regardless of Parisyan’s inability to fight as previously expected via his Twitter account, stating:
Dustin will be paid his full purse to show and win. Its not his fault.
Hopefully the UFC will manage to secure another fight for Hazelett at a UFC in the near future. As it currently stands, it has been four days past the one year anniversary of Dustin’s last trip to the Octagon, where he tapped out Tamdan McCrory with a nasty inverted armbar at their UFC 91 meeting.
