    I'm American and a HUGE Chandler fan - he's the definition of a "tough Yank"! But Hooker is just a COOL guy - and as tough as they come. Between him and Michael...LUCK's gotta be a big factor! I think Chandler's MIND SET was pretty much unbeatable that night. As far as toughness and skills - they're pretty much even matched... (But what the **** do I know?) 2 good guys I'd love to drink some beers with!

    I have only come to know Dan the man when he fought the Diamond. Wow what can I say .. I love this dude . I know he said none of his coaches spoke to him after the fight with Dustin and they are right after all the work put in during his camp but although it wasn't good from a winning point of view but man Dan must have gained a a million more fans he wore his heart on his sleeve and fought like a warrior. I know that loss hurt Dan but I rank him right up there and one of my new favourite UFC fighters. I wish him all the luck in the world. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger....Dan will learn and be a better fighter for the experience.

    Dan Hooker is too nice - and unlikely to be a ufc. He is not hungry and does not have ferocity, extreme devotion & constant practice the like of Adesanya, Nganou, Jones, Khabib, Gaethje. Seriously Dan should be smart enough to change career noe

He chews up stocky wrestlers all day with his deadly knee's . Of coarse he had a bad night boys he already knows this... Put it on the the back burner let it fuel you not hinder you

    When Dan was ranked 15th I said he has world champion material He's a World classes fighter and I have no doubt he would be Connor And I'm sorry I Think Chandler got lucky on Dan's day off

  • Ark Angel
    Ark Angel

    Dan sounds like a idiot... he didnt answer one question directly... he talk around all the question.. not answering none of them. Correctly while smiling and laughing to cover up saying he got smash and out class. Dan is so overrated it's disgusting.. he's only fought bums .. all wins on his record are bums.. put him against some elites.. and he gets smash.. by Poirier and Chandler. What makes me so piss is that he didnt even give Chandler credit on a great performance .. but that's but loser do... they lose then just laugh and smile it off knowing they got thier ass kick .. by a real fighter.. lol

    Hooker just cause you lost does not mean you wasted 4 months of your life. Im sure you improved within that 4 mo period. I know you all want to be the champ but thats not really what martial arts are about. Its about improvement. Winning isnt everything. You win some you lose some no need to beat self up further😁
