    Nate is still a draw, win or lose. Everyone wants a red panty night.

    Man just fought and lost two Chandler and Poirier. Hooker probably just looking for a tune-up

    No. Islam vs Hooker or Tony vs Hooker.

    That's a great fight if Nate wants to come back to 155, hell Dan would move up in a heart beat to 170 for that fight.

    Hooker should be out of the top 15 if he wants to fight nate.

    That's a good fight. Hooker could win a 3 rounder pretty convincingly. Doesn't pace himself for a 5 rounder though

    He gassed bad against Dustin, he doesn’t beat Nate in 5. hooker gets folded like Pettis did.
    Remember Nate was #4 at LW when he left. Just like when cowboy came back to 155 his old rank will be put into consideration

    Why? His last fight was over a guy with 0 ufc wins
    Why can’t Hooker fight a proven yet unranked due to inactivity Diaz? Islam continues to fight unranked guys yet is moving up the ranks yet Hooker should be removed? Overreaction.

    Hooker is on his way to being a gatekeeper if he continues to fight... I don't see a problem with him fighting Diaz if Diaz wants it.

    Islam is fighting Moises next who's ranked 14th. Meanwhile hooker is trying to fight nate who's not even close to being ranked. If he wants to fight some unranked guys then he should fight fiziev.

    His first fight vs a ranked contender. #8 vs #14
    Nate’s not close to being ranked because his last 5 fights have been at welterweight
    If he goes back to lightweight he’s a fight away from being ranked which is pretty close to me. Diaz is more proven a fighter than Moises also who lost to dariush pre prime and ismgolov
    His only wins being over a washed MJ(Diaz embarrassed prime version) a washed Bobby Green and the hype job Alex Hernandez. Hooker shouldn’t be demoted for giving an unranked fighter a way in.

    But Dana once told me that Nate Diaz isn’t a needle mover? Hahaha

    That’s right up there with never seeing women in the UFC.... a statement that was sadly proven to be a lie.
