MMA Weekly first reported the welterweight matchup on Monday.
Parisyan (18-5) defeated Dong Hyun Kim in January by split decision in January to rebound from an April 2008 loss to Thiago Alves, but the win was changed to a no contest after Parisyan tested positive for 3 banned painkillers and was issued a 9-month suspension. “The Heat” had previously won three-straight over Drew Fickett, Josh Burkman, and Ryo Chonan.
Hazelett (12-4) improved his UFC record to 5-2 by submitting Tamdan McCrory last November in his most-recent fight, his second-straight win following a June 2008 submission of Josh Burkman. “McLovin” had been scheduled to fight Ben Saunders in March at UFC 96 but withdrew from the bout after suffering a knee injury.
UFC 106 is headlined by a heavyweight championship bout between title-holder Brock Lesnar and challenger Shane Carwin, and also features Tito Ortiz’s return to the Octagon against Mark Coleman.
