Dan Hooker Plans To End Makhachev


Rafael Dos Anjos had to cancel his bout with Makhachev in which Hooker has so graciously filled in for fight fans. While the image above (pulled from Hookers Instagram account) says the 31st. The Fight is actually on the 30th. One week from today!


Hooker has had some words to share about his thoughts on their upcoming bout -

“I'm not convinced. If they’re just doing this to kinda construct some mentality in him that he's indestructible. I'm not buying it. I don't buy it. He puts his pants on like I put my pants on in the morning. He ain't Superman, I'm very confident."


Hooker hasn't lost a fight since January and is coming off a recent win. He doesn't plan to lose again anytime soon.


“That’s the only way he’s gonna beat me is by decision. I feel like he’s gonna try and hold me down for two rounds. That would be their plan coming into the fight. He’s not a big ground-and-pound guy. He’s not, like, a real slick submission specialist.


He’s more like pressuring guys and tiring them out and forcing them to give up a submission. As opposed to being like a Charles Oliveira, like a real slick submission specialist that throws up all these different submission attempts and catches guys."


So it looks like Hooker is going to try and win the fight by keeping it on their toes and maintaining dominant ground positioning with superior wrestling. Makhachev may not be Superman but he comes from arguably the best MMA camp on the planet right now.
