Melvin Guillard Out, Diego Saraiva In for UFC 67

Melvin Guillard has been forced to withdraw from a fight against Ohioan Dustin Hazelett scheduled for Feb. 3 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Guillard, a rising lightweight, suffered an apparent hand injury that will prevent him from competing at UFC 67.

Ken Pavia, the agent for Guillard’s replacement Diego Saraiva, confirmed to that his charge will indeed take Guillard’s spot against Hazelett. This will be the first UFC contest for the Atlanta, Ga.-based Saraiva (9-3-1).

Hazelett (7-3-0), winner of four in a row before succumbing to Tony DeSouza in his UFC debut last Oct., makes a second trek into the Octagon.
