    It takes two to make a great fight.

    And last night we witnessed a great fight. The kind of fight I live for as a fight fan.

    Felder, in my opinion, should have got the win. He controlled the octogon, pushed the pace consistently, and was the aggressor.

    Heart for days.

    But I can’t take away from Hookers performance.

    You could see it in both fighters eyes they wanted out. But neither are quitters, and neither quit last night.

    Hooker fought a hell of a fight.

    Respect to both dudes.

    It was a great fight and should have been apparent to the judges who had enough from backing up and shooting for takedowns when getting hit.

    Aggression and octagon control were not points of scoring criteria last night.

    Great fight. I shouldn’t still be surprised when so many sherdoggers are calling a close fight a ‘robbery’.

    He controlled distance well for the first 15 minutes. He ate Felders hardest shots and barely flinched. And he landed a lot from the outside. And yes, like it or not, he controlled the last few minutes of the bout, when it mattered most.

    Both middle top 10 fighters, before and after the fight. A virtual tie. One got the nod. Cheers to them both. I hope to see Felder fight again but if he doesn’t, Godspeed.

    I like him, but his striking defense is beyond terrible.

    Hooker is a top ten fighter for 2.5 rounds, then his movement and defense drop significantly. For his sake, I hope his cardio improves from here on out.

    Did Felder really land more in most rounds?

    Shut the fuck up, as usual you don't know what you're talking about.

    Hooker landed more head strikes in every round except the 4th

    No he didn't. How about looking up the actual statistics before posting?

    Hooker outlanded him in every round except the 4th. He landed more head strikes in every round but the 4th

    Yep. Play clash of clans and listen for crowd reaction. Look up to see who's winning the last 10 seconds of round.
