Dan Hooker Really Bout That Life: Kiwi Lightweight To Take On No. 5 Ranked Islam Makhachev, On Short Notice

Dan Hooker is a fucking savage.

After UFC lightweight veteran Rafael dos Anjos was forced to withdraw from his Islam Makhachev fight, on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi, uncle Dana made a phone call.

Without hesitation and despite being fresh off a fight last weekend, No. 6-ranked Hooker has said yes to the fight nobody else wants.

Already in Vegas, Hangman will likely stay or ship out early for Abu Dhabi to avoid the restrictive and widely-criticised COVID protocols back in NZ.

We all know Dan’s story how even made it to his most recent fight. The hoops and hurdles he had to get past to make the walk – only to put in arguably the performance of his career.

And now, in little over four weeks time, he’s going to fight Makhachev (20-1).

For those who might not know yet, this bloke is a savage that everyone in the division avoids.

Currently riding an eight fight win streak, and the protege of former champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Yeah….nightmare. A guy widely viewed as the future champion in the division.

But, Dan don’t give a fuck about that.

The Kiwi will be a massive underdog, but it’s looking like this will be a three round fight and that’s where Hooker does his best work.

It’s kind of a win-win.

All the pressure is on Makhachev. He wins this, it’s title shot season.

Dan is expected to lose, on short notice, nobody will give him much of a chance….perfect!
