Activity vs Inactivity

Hooker is looking for a relativity quick turnaround after coming off a war with Paul Felder at UFC Auckland. He managed to pick up a closely contested win, which many had Felder winning. Now Hooker is letting the momentum flow and stepping up the ladder even further as he takes on Dustin Poirier.

Meanwhile, Poirier hasn’t fought since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 242 in September 2019. Prior to that Poirier hadn’t lost since 2016 and picked up wins over Eddie Alvarez, Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway since then. This break for Poirier should be good thing, time to recoup and go back to drawing board.

Kickboxing vs Boxing

“The Hangman” is one of many proficient fighters to come out of City Kickboxing in New Zealand. Including Alex Volkanovski and Israel Adesanya currently riding high at the top of their respective divisions.

We seen Felder being the better boxer on some of the exchanges against Hooker, especially the hooks. It’s in the kickboxing department that Hooker excels and this is where we give him the edge.

Expect Poirier to integrate that into his game plan along with smothering Hooker, so he can’t use his range. Poirier has one of the best pure boxing games in UFC with decent kicks and a well-rounded ground game. This will be the difference on fight night with Poirier coming off as the more seasoned and crisper fighter.

Pick: Dustin Poirier by Knockout.
