 Martial Arts Background
 Mixed Martial Arts Career
Hazelett fought in a variety of promotions before making his UFC debut on October 10, 2006, in a submission loss to Tony DeSouza. He has since fought six more times in the organization. Dustin holds notable wins over Josh Burkman via Flying Armbar at The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale and Tamdan McCrory due to a Reverse Armbar at UFC 91: Couture vs. Lesnar. Each spectacular finish earned Dustin Submission of the Night Honors. His next fight was expected to be against Ben Saunders at UFC 96: Jackson vs. Jardine, but he had to withdraw due to injury.
Hazelett had another set-back, as he was scheduled to face off against Judo expert Karo Parisyan on November 21, 2009 at UFC 106: Ortiz vs. Griffin II, but Parisyan pulled out of the bout only a few days before the event. UFC President Dana White made the announcement later that day that Hazelett would 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. It's not his fault."
Good news came Hazelett's way when Carlos Condit was forced out of his UFC 108: Evans vs. Silva fight against Paul Daley. Hazelett would replace Condit, making the bout a classic striker vs. grappler match-up. Daley failed to make weight at the weigh-ins, giving Hazelett 10% of his purse, and making the bout a Catchweight affair at 172 lbs. Hazelett started the bout off with a rolling attack, that missed, and he tried to keep Daley at a distance with kicks, but Daley's far superior technical striking helped him land a left hook that dropped Hazelett. A few more unanswered shots, and Herb Dean stopped the action at 2:24 of the first round.
Hazelett's next fight took place at UFC 117: Silva vs. Sonne, where he faced Rick Story. Story dominated the first round, keeping the fight standing. Story again let his hands fly in the second. The blows forced an already-dazed Hazelett to cover up on the ground, which prompted referee Josh Rosenthal to award a TKO victory at the round's 1:15 mark.
With the second consecutive (T)KO loss, Hazelett announced that he would be dropping down to compete at Lightweight (155 lbs.).
