    Solid fight. Hooker has alternated wins/losses in his UFC career so it will be interesting to see if he can win this one coming off a win earlier this year.

    Diakiese by a murderous death. The hype train lost a bit of steam but will continue in due course.

    I hope Hooker is a stand up fighter. That stupid match-making of grappler vs striker is one of the reasons why some fights suck.

    Match strikers with strikers and grapplers with grapplers, unless it is an unavoidable title fight or title eliminator.

    Don't turn great strikers into game planning tentative point scoring fighters because they are afraid to lose and get cut.

    Great fight. I'm taking Diakiese to get back on track.

    UFC 219 so far:

    Dominick Cruz vs. Jimmie Rivera
    Carlos Condit vs. Neil Magny
    Kamaru Usman vs. Emil Meek
    Gokhan Saki vs. Khalil Rountree
    Cynthia Calvillo vs. Carla Esparza
    Myles Jury vs. Rick Glenn
    Marc Diakiese vs. Dan Hooker
    Louis Smolka vs. Matheus Nicolau

    With 8 fights confirmed, we should get getting an influx of Main Card fight announced for The UFC's annual NYE event.

    Eh. I think he's still a really good prospect. He lost a very close fight against another prospect in Drakkar Klose who has a bright future at 155. It could be argued that both of those guys have potential to be top 10 eventually.

    Great potential for violence in that match up. That card as a whole looks wonderful.

    Fun fight, biasly picking Dan but Marc is a dangerous fight, Dan has a good chin but he's pretty hittable.

    Heart says hooker
    Brain says diakese

    Decent match up. I'd like to see Diakiese pick up the win.

    I agree. I would imagine that Diakiese would be a slight favorite.

    Hooker got Hioki out of the UFC, and comes to finish (13 finishes in 14 wins). Diakise is flashy, but was exposed in his last fight. I’m hopeful Diakise worked on his wrestling, because otherwise, he will never be a serious contender.

    The knee that Hooker finished Pearson with was SICK. This should be a good fight. I favor Diakiese slightly but couldneasily see either winning.
