Pretty remarkable recovery huh?

Hooker’s next fight?

Heading into UFC Vegas 4, the consensus was that if Hooker won the bout, he would be knocking on the title shot door. But, Poirier emerged from the thrilling contest with the decision win.

As a result, Hooker will likely need to record at least one more big win, before he’s back in the title shot conversation. Following his loss to Poirier, Hooker said he’s more than willing to fight former interim lightweight champ, Tony Ferguson next.
