Dustin HazelettA welterweight showdown between fellow submission wizards Karo Parisyan and Dustin Hazelett has been agreed to for UFC 106.

Sources close to the bout have recently confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that both fighters have agreed to the match-up.

UFC 106 is set for November 21 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will air live on pay-per-view. The card is expected to feature a heavyweight championship bout between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin as the headliner, with a light-heavyweight contest between Tito Ortiz and Mark Coleman as the co-headliner.

A Judo master crafted under the guidance of grappling legends Gokor Chivichyan and Gene Lebell, Parisyan has established himself as a constant force in the UFC’s welterweight division since his arrival in 2003, putting up an impressive record of 8-3-1 during his time spent in the Octagon. Parisyan’s most recent decision victory over Dong Hyun-Kim was overturned after it was revealed that Karo had tested positive for banned pain-killers following the bout.

Hazelett, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, has picked up the coveted “Submission of the Night” in both of his prior appearances in the Octagon. With a UFC record of 5-2, Hazelett has bested highly regarded fighters such as Josh Burkman and Tamdan McCrory in recent outings.
