UFC 257 Preview

There have been a few recent changes to the original card in light of recent events. Ottman Azaitar pulled out of his main card lightweight fight with Matt Frevola due to “a recent violation of the health and safety protocols involving” Azaitar, per UFC.com. With Nasrat Haqparast also unable to compete in his upcoming bout with Arman Tsarukyan due to illness, Tsarukyan and Frevola will now clash in the main event of the prelims.

While much has been said about the McGregor – Poirier rematch, the showdown between Hooker and Chandler should be just as enthralling.

Chandler (21-5) has beaten the likes of Eddie Alvarez, Benson Henderson, Brent Primus and Patricky Freire, while Hooker (20-9) has handled Gilbert Burns, Paul Felder, Al Iaquinta, James Vick, Marc Diakiese and Jim Miller, among others. Now, they’ll battle each other for the first time.

It will be Chandler’s UFC debut, and the 34-year-old pugilist is ready for the opportunity.

“I’ve been competing at a high level since I was 14 years old. I’ve been dreaming of this day just in case it ever did come, and now I’m fully prepared to take the opportunity head-on. All these guys are the best in the world, and the UFC lightweight division is the most hyped, the most electrified division in the UFC today. It was a perfect time to insert my name into the mix,” he said, via MMA Junkie.

For his part, the 30-year-old Hooker says that his experience should benefit him in more ways than one:

“He loses this fight against me, that’s all of that hype gone. I don’t think he’s at the stage of his career where he’s going to build himself up, going back in the UFC fighting unranked fighters, working his way back up the ladder. This is a make-or-break fight for Michael Chandler. For me, I can just fall back on that experience.”
