    dc pushing islam machechev vs hooker. if hooker thinks he can win, that's a path to khabib. beat up his friends, and make him come defend their honor.



    joanna not making 115.

    If anything, I could see it being Poirier vs Gaethjie next. Hooker was #15 going in, and will probably just crack the Top-10 after the win. I'm guessing he maxes out at #8. Maybe Cowboy vs Hooker?

    cowboy looks like the weak link in the standings. might have been better for hooker to call out porrier, and "settle" for cowboy.

    this was the prelim fight with the crazy 3rd round. final buzzer, exhausted, both on their knees, hard right hook.

    Hooker should face one of Felder, barboza or gaethje yet

    That's what I'm sayin. Was really impressed by his defense, and obviously his counters. Rob looked rusty ... couldn't find his range.
    That was one of those style fights that just played into
    Adesanya's hands where he had an opponent doing exactly what he wanted him to do and allowing him to play counter striker. His reach advantage didn't hurt either. It's funny though in that Whittaker was doing exactly what he had to do in the first round and was winning it until he got it. Again, just a matchup that didn't favor him.

    You have to wonder how much Whittaker's layoff hurt him cause that's a long time between fights. Still, that was a pretty convincing win.

    Ya it was obvious couple mins into the fight Robbie was either going to knock stylebender out charging ahead like that or eat a counter. I really did not expect such a quick fight and honestly rob got saved by the bell 1st round. 15 more second and that would have been a finish. Its going to be tough for middle weights to get into adyesanas range and land no matter how much power they have. Costa may be able to get in a land a shot but he may face the same fate as whittaker, I offically believe the hype now, Isreal is 4real

    this will be a good one. I like Hookers confidence but he hasnt earned a shot at someone like dustin yet. He has nothing to gain but everything to lose taking that fight, The connor porrier matchup would be one that both guys should like. Dustin has the chance to avenge his loss and stay in title contention. while Conor can take a fight he thinks he can win since he really needs a W after i think nearly 3 years since he has won. Winner gets a shot at the BMF

    Hmmmm Dan Hooker calling out Dustin Poirier? Before this fight he was ranked 14. I could see him maybe jumping up to 8 or 9. But I don't see what Poirier gets out of that fight after challenging for the belt, except to stop the young upstart ... would be a great fight though.
    Thought so ...
