    Solid step up in competition for Hooker. Should be some decent violence.

    Just book Vick vs Hernandez now and the two rising talents of LW can both prove themselves.

    Leaning toward Dan Hooker in this one, maybe 3rd round TKO or something.

    I think Dan pressures him with the boxing and gets a decision win. Either way should be a great fight. War Hook--* Dan.

    Hooker is a savage, I think he wins. Beneil Dariush was doing just fine against Barboza until he got caught, Barboza can always land something insane but Dan hooker should be the favorite.

    As long as hooker can avoid getting his long legs fractured, I could see him winning this one. He can box which is usually enough to give barboza fits.

    Excellent fight, should be fireworks. Hooker has looked like a boss since he moved up to lightweight, and Edson needs a W.

    I got Edson in a competitive fight, for as long as it lasts.

    Excited for this fight, and happy for Dan Hooker that he has finally got a Top-10 guy and pretty big name to fight against.

    Big fan of Barboza *and* Hooker, i think for sure it will be an entertaining fight, great stuff!

    Spamming spinning shit won’t work against a high level striker like Hooker, and Barboza’s boxing isn’t near his level. Hooker will get a statement KO here and shoot well into the top 10. Very rough skid for Barboza if so.

    yeah not sure who to root for here because I like Edson and same with Hooker. Hooker getting the W might be better for the division overall though right now as Edson probably isn't getting a TS anytime soon.

    Awesome fight either way and really lookin forward to this one

    Jesus. Whatever Vick did to your family, it can't possibly be this bad. Hernandez is gonna eat a raw giraffe steak in that octagon.

    I say give Felder and then Barboza to Vick.

    Yes! Great match making. I got hooker, but I hate to see either of them lose.
