    repeat of the hooker fight basically, he should fight more than once a year

    I mean it’s a call out I guess but sounds more like an invitation for coffee & scones

    He was supposed to fight Jeremy Stephens but he pulled out so Arnie is just trying to find another opponent to keep his slot fighting at the event alive

    He's ranked higher than anyone else Barboza will get, so Barboza should accept the fight.

    Hooker and Allen are nothing alike.

    Did you start watching MMA yesterday? Allen is likely favored if they fought today.

    Allen isn't great at all. His best win is a split decision to Amirkhani and he was getting dominated by Mads Burnell

    Barboza has hardly destroyed anybody as of late, rather he's gone to close decision after close decision, then had one clear decision against Makwan, who he probably should have destroyed. Historically, Barboza doesn't let his leg kicks go as much against southpaws and sticks with boxing, as he did against southpaws like Makwan and Dariush. This plays into Allen's advantage as he's a southpaw with a great counter left.

    I think it would be a close fight with both guys having their moments, but I doubt anyone gets destroyed.
