  2. Commentators with some zingers tonight lmao

    Anik: “one of the best rounds of 2020… Unless you like defense”

    Cruz: “as rounds go on, things that are in slip right out”

    Bisping: “we got fat Joe in the house!”

    And of course, Cruz with the classic “this is very hard to get out of” right before hooker slips out of the guillotine

  3. That second round was one of the best rounds of the year. Between this fight, Joanna/Weili, Felder/Hooker and Emmett/Burgos, we’ve had some amazing FOTY contenders over the last four months.

  4. I think Hooker’s chin is backfiring on him. Yeah he can take the shots, but they’re making him apprehensive and tiring him out.

    He’s clearly Capital E Elite for two and a half rounds, but after that he realizes how much he’s getting hit/how tired it makes him and goes to reactive doubles to try to catch his breath on top on the ground. His shots had *nothin* on em after round 3.

    Not sure he’s built for five rounders until he improves his striking defense and/or cardio.

  5. Dustin has had 3 bloodbaths in his past 5 fights

    – Hooker now, Max, Gaethje, Eddie Alvarez (x2 if you go back a little further)

    Hooker has had 3 major bloodbaths in his past 5 fights too

    – Poirier now, Felder, Barboza.

    Thank you for this instant classic, it will go down in the history books.

  6. Good to see some competent judging for once.

    Was worried for Poirier when Hooker spammed takedowns, even though he didn’t do much with it. Judges value that shit too much.

  7. What a bloody fight and possible FOTY. People underrated Hooker going into this, but he showed he’s proper elite. I’m glad Poirier got the win as I love some violent DP action.

  8. Dustin’s ability to dig deep is what separates him from a lot of these other fighters. It wasn’t looking good going into the third but he dug deep and came back to win the last 3 imo. Crazy impressive!

  9. Has Poirier ever been in a boring fight? Guy is a dog. Mad heart.

    Shout to hooker as well. He’s tough as nails as well.

    Amazing fucking fight. Especially without the crowd.
