    relying too much on iron chin is a bad idea....

    He never should have laced them up in the first place.

    dude came to ride his bike around in circles


    Highly doubt he is “retiring” though, just probably pissed off and disappointed (understandable) and having a temper tantrum.

    Not everyone can be George Foreman and have a chin that never leaves you. Dan will not recover from this mentally imo.

    No way... he’s still young. He was probably just disappointed.

    Hooker needed a humbling, I loved it!

    He'll be better from it, just like Chandler is from his defeats.

    Hooker is overrated, Edson took his soul already.

    Don’t make permanent decisions based on temporary feelings

    My strea....ppv cut out, but I made it back in time to see the replay and the promo Mike cut. Doesn’t get much better than that for a debut. Hooker will bounce back from this, just needed a bit more time off from the DP fight.

    I haven't felt right about Hooker since he got that hometown robbery vs Felder.

    Hookers deciding to quit without talking to management is a risky move.

    Hasn't Holloway had the most punches landed on him in UFC history?
