    No. Everyone wants easiest fight nowadays with most to gain.

    Tony should fight Hooker. He can win that fight imo.

    Arman said Dan Hooker is his first choice.

    When asked what if Dan doesn't beat Nasrat, Arman said Tony would be his next choice.

    At this age, Tony loses to Arman, Dan and Nasrat.

    Lots of sherdoggers will complain about Arman calling out Tony following his 3-fight skid, yet hardly anyone complained when Dan Hooker said he wants to fight Tony just a few months ago ;)

    Islam, Hooker and now Tsarukian.
    As long as Tony is ranked so high, people will keep calling him out.

    Lol no. Two old guys on losing streaks holding up spots in the division they don't deserve. Having them fight each other would keep them both in the top 10 when neither guy should be at this point. They both should be fighting guys like Arman trying to break in.

    No, he is ranked 6th. The rankings should reflect who the best fighters in the world are. If you're scared of him fighting the 14th ranked guy then he shouldn't even be in the top 15.

    Hooker's on a two fight losing streak, calling out a guy on a three fight losing streak makes sense for him.

    Why on Earth would anyone complain about Hooker calling out Tony? It's a desperate call out because he needs a win and Tony looks utterly washed. Both guys could be 0-3 in their last three real soon.

    Why would Arman make a dummy call out like Ferguson now? It's stupid beyond compare. Arman should ONLY back up his call out of Hooker if he beats Nasrat, if Dan loses to Haqparast then Arman needs to drop that shit ASAP and move on.

    Let guys who are losing fight guys who are losing in a bid to win a fight; let guys who are crushing opponents fight guys who are crushing opponents to prove they're the best. Let's not employ dog shit Abdelaziz logic here.

    Rankings are based on previous achievement, not who is best.

    To the idiots who ranked him perhaps but that's not how it's supposed to work. His ranking justifies a tough fight next against someone worthy of taking that spot.

    Hooker fighting Tony does nothing to move the division forward. Right now there are several guys who deserve those spots and they should get them. If Arman beats Tony he gets his No 6 spot and gets to fight a top contender next.

    Abdelaziz logic again.

    Nobody gives a shit about Arman beating a ranked guy who can't buy a win. The rankings don't matter that much.

    Fans want to see names fight names and killers to fight killers.

    It's pretty simple.

    Hooker vs Ferguson would make sense.

    Arman vs Gregor/Fiziev/Riddell/Makhachev make sense.

    Mixing the two makes ZERO sense.

    Low hanging fruit is all these types of fighters want. Notice how they never call out guys on win streaks.

    I’d love to see Arman against a cagey vet, even if Tony is shopworn.

    Yeah Arman's on a win streak and Dan is on a losing streak but there's a huge difference in rankings between the two and of their past opponents.

    I think Arman beats Dan 9/10 times but as long as he has a #14 next to his name while Dan and Tony have #8 and #6, it's totally fair for Arman to call them out. Plus most other top 10 guys are booked.
