I'm glad to see Hamill back in the octagon. His losses are only against absolute top of the heap fighters (Franklin, Rampage, Bisping, Gustafsson). He has some very impressive wins too (Munoz, Boetch, Ortiz).

I think the biggest thing about Hamill being back is it introduces another reasonably viable storyline for Jones as a title challenger. There aren't many left at LHW. If Hamill can string some wins together while Jones fights Belfort/Henderson/Gustafsson (and Sonnen if he can win some fights), it will give Jones a chance to avenge his "loss".
Yeah this is a huge step up in quality of opposition. Hollett is opportunistic and if Hamill presents that one small window - then Hollett will need to capitalize... that's his best (only) chance. If Hamill is in trouble (either with strikes or via submission) and is able to recoup then I would say chances are that Hamill frustrates him and wins the decision.
