“This is his party. I’m just here to spoil it” – Dan Hooker fighting Islam Makhachev



Dan Hooker aims to sign Islam Makhachev in his match at UFC 267.

Dan Whore (21-10) will face Islam Makhachev (20-1) Saturday at UFC 267 in one of the biggest fights of his career. Hooker got into a fight with Makhachev shortly after. Rafael dos Anjos (30-13) is dropped from the battle card. A few days after being defeated Nasrata Haqparasta (13-4) At UFC 266, New Zealand decided to duel the Russian at UFC 267.

In an interview with the media ahead of Saturday’s event, Hooker talked about his upcoming fight with Mahachev. The New Zealander admitted that he looks forward to testing his skills in the fight against the Russians.

This way of thinking didn’t appeal to me at all, nor did I ever understand to downplay my opponent’s achievements before a fight. Because when you overcome them, you only distance yourself from your own achievements. I’m not going to analyze their past or their achievements and belittle them. I don’t even approach it that way mentally. I want to fight him because he is an expert. I want to fight it because there is so much intrigue in it. I want to fight him because he is considered the best hunter in the department. I want to fight with the best fighters in the world and he is considered one of the best fighters in the world. That’s why I want to fight him. I don’t want to fight him because I think he’s an easy target. There’s no point in discrediting him. He deserved everything he got. This is his party. I’m just here to ruin it. That’s my whole plan.

The whore confessed.

Do you think Dan Hooker has what it takes to beat Islam Makhachev at UFC 267?
