Bocek Ready For "Good Test" Against Hazelett
Like Hazelett, the 29 year-old Bocek will be looking to get back in the winning column, after losing by unanimous decision to Jim Miller this past March. The judge’s decision put an end to Bocek’s (8-3) three fight winning streak, which saw the lightweight tap-out Alvin Robsinson, David Bielkheden and Joe Brammer.
After going 1-2 in his first three Octagon appearances, Bocek is now 3-1 in his last four UFC bouts, a run of success which is likely tied to his decision to begin training with American Top Team. As a result, Bocek has once again headed south to Florida, to prepare for his upcoming tilt with Hazelett.
“I have been training with Marcelo Garcia and American Top Team; I will be ready for this fight,” Bocek told FCF. “Training has been going very well and I feel very good.”
And as far as the Nova Uniao black belt’s prediction for the December 11th bout?
“Impossible to make predictions,” Bocek responded. “I can just guarantee that I will be ready for everything that he brings.”
UFC 124 will be hosted by Montreal’s Bell Centre, and will feature UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre vs. challenger Josh Koscheck in the main event.
