In arguably one of the best UFC fights of 2020, Dustin Poirier defeated Dan Hooker by unanimous decision.

The fight went to the ground in the fourth round, and Poirier attempted several submissions before Hooker escaped. Poirier appeared to have more energy left for the fifth round, and he won on all three cards: 48-47, 48-47 and 48-46.

He was back in fine form against Hooker , the tough kickboxing star from New Zealand who had won seven of his last eight bouts since 2016. “Every time we get in there, it’s all up to me,” said Perry, who plans to get new coaches before his next bout. “I trained for this. I’m a professional.”
