Dan Hooker expects a title chance in case of victory over Dustin Porrier

The fifth number of the UFC lightweight rating, Dan Hooker, is confident that defeating Dustin Porrier in the upcoming match will make him the number one challenger and provide a title chance.

“I will have a victory over the third number of Dustin Porrier, over Paul Felder, who was the sixth, and Al Yakvinta, who was also the sixth, which gives me confidence that I will be next in line for the title fight,” said Hooker in Sporting News interview. “When I beat Porrier, I will be number one contender, and if someone has a problem with this, they know where to call them”

Hooker considers Porrier a skilled boxer and a versatile fighter, but the New Zealander is confident that he will succeed in surpassing the American in the rack.

“I know what he has to offer. He is an incredibly strong, strong boxer, a strong fighter, very versatile and comfortable in the main fights. This will be his fifth or sixth main event, so he definitely has more experience in five-round matches. It’s worth respecting, but when it comes to skills, I think he suits me very well, as a rival, because technically I’m much sharper on his feet. ”

Recall that the fight between Dustin Porrier and Dan Hooker will be the main event of the UFC on ESPN 12 tournament, which will be held on June 27 in Las Vegas.
