    Hooker at 145 is not something I wanted. Dude is too big for that division. I can see bad things coming from this cut, most notably a drop in durability

    He doesn't deserve KZ, give him someone around #6 - 10 at FW

    He's ranked #8 at LW. He'll get a favorable ranking and fight.

    What happened to ww? I like that move alot more.
    Draining yourself to compete at a lower weight class won't help your wrestling defense issue either
    Better to be as strong possible to help that hole

    I like Hooker, but if he's dumb enough to go back down to 145 he deserves to get KOd

    I have watched that fight with Felder 4xs and legit have no idea how some people think Felder won that one. I scored it 49-46 upon every watch. I like them both, just seriously don't see what some other fans are seeing when I watch it.

    It's all relative. Dan's grappling looked fine against Haqprast, Iaquinta and Poirier.

    No one at FW has grappling like Islam so it shouldn't block him from title contention.

    Not to mention he left featherweight a few years ago with a very mediocre record as well

    He shouldn't, considering we've seen him at FW and he couldn't hang there.

    The UFC likes him and keeps giving him big opportunities. I don't expect that trend to change right now.

    I agree he'll get a higher ranked opponent than he deserves. That's been a trend with hooker's career. People like him a lot I guess.

    Dan is playing this game well. Youngsters should be taking notes. I think he’s making a smart move going back down to 145lbs. He’s one win away from being back in the conversation.

    Hooker should win and earn himself a title shot.

    only reason hooker is even remotely relevant is because he keeps calling out big names

    KZ got bigger fish to fry
