  • Here after he brutally took out Hooker, proved every doubter that he isn't just talk... he can hang with the top contenders in the 155lb division and will have an exciting career with the ufc!

    • @Jonero probably, but I thi k chandler dominated him in the stand up and let's not forget that Olivera was tapping to felder's strikes when he was in the ground. I think Olivera is going to get beaten up by guys like dustin, Justin, and chandler. I just have a gut feeling.

    • I believe Charles Oliveira is going to be the UFC lightweight champion. His BJJ is unmatched and will give anyone else issues.

  • He should have fought Tony Ferguson there might be chance of winning becoz Tony was still not fully recovered from Gaethge fight but Hooker is different animal he had tough decision loss with Dustin. But it's a fight game Anything can happen

  • That's weird, seems like the UFC and/or Hooker pulled a fast one on Mike, he said in a recent interview with Helwani that he knew he was fighting Chandler for 6 weeks or something like that, while Mike here says he's only known for 1 week.
