I think Hooker is slightly overated but stylistically I can see how he can win here. I am not 100% sure of DP's chin either. STill favour DP to win this though

Dan Hooker is riding a tidal wave of hype that comes along with this City Kickboxing storm and his winning streak. I like him a lot as a fighter but even I have to admit I'm more interested in seeing him because it keeps this aura around City Kickboxing alive.

Dan Hooker, he is the more active fighter and has better striking defense and movement patterns. DP is more well rounded however if he can't TKO him with his signature combinations or take it to the ground for a guillotine I don't see him winning.

If I picked Sato to win anyway, do I need to change the opponents name on my pick list to get credit or just leave it as is?

Not too familiar with this card honestly besides the main and co-main, and Luis Pena. I think Perry will get a close decision over Gall. Any other time I say Perry would finish Gall but idk where Mike's mindset is. He doesn't seem to be in a good place. I like Hooker but believe he losses to any top 5 light weight, with all due respect. I think Poirier pressures him up close and tries to stay out of Hookers kicking range. Poirier by decision or late tko in the 4th or 5th. If Hooker tries to shoot on Dustin, like he did with Felder, Poirier can forsure out grapple him as well.

I feel like Hooker edges a split. Should be a good fight. Tbh gut went Hooker, like the dog in him, still wouldn't be surprised to see DP fuck him up. Could go either way.

This is pretty much how i feel about it as well. I feel like if Hooker wins it's gonna be a close, hard fought victory... But as you said... Wouldn't he surprised to see him overwhelm him with those combos like he did Gaethje. I don't think that'll happen tho as Hooker has evolved into a more technical striker. Hooker, to me, looks like he is modeling himself after teammate Adesanya but without that special sauce Stylebender has.

Hooker looked extremely vulnerable vs Felder imo. I think Felder has a little reach on DP but wouldn't be least bit surprised to see something reminiscent to Gaejthe vs Vick.

War Hooker, just cuz I bet on ya.

yeah, and evidently Maverick got hurt too, so that fight is off.

Poirier I can’t see losing here. 3rd rd TKO.

Perry is going to kill Gall, this is such a mismatch.

Nelson got pulled from this card even before I made this thread.

Leave it. You only have to make a change if the guy you picked gets replaced.
