UFC San Antonio Primer: Watch Dan Hooker Reflect on Booming Knee he Used to Wreck Ross Pearson

Dan Hooker is back in action tonight at UFC San Antonio, and recently the promotion posted "The Hangman" breaking down his vicious KO of Ross Pearson.

Dan Hooker is coming off a memorable, knockouts loss to Edson Barboza, but prior to that, “The Hangman” was making plenty of noise via a four-fight winning streak.

After Hooker lost via decision to featherweight Jason Knight in 2016, the New Zealand fighter decided to move-up to 155, and he proceeded to finish four straight opponents. One of those was rugged vet, Ross Pearson, who Hooker took out with a vicious knee in 2017.

You can watch the 29-year-old reflect on the jaw-dropping win below.
