I’m not a guy who goes away and practices my lines in the mirror or anything like that‘ – Dan Hooker

Talking about Conor McGregor, Hooker was quoted as saying, “To be honest, I’m a fan of the sport – it’ll be pretty surreal to be sitting up with those guys at such a huge press conference like that. I don’t put too much thought into it. I’m not a guy who goes away and practices my lines in the mirror or anything like that. I’m going to take it as it comes. Ninety-nine percent of the focus will be on Conor and what he’s going to do and what he’s going to say.” [MMA Junkie]

He continued, “You’ve got to be on your toes. You don’t want to get ‘Who the (expletive) is that guy’d?’ or something like that. He could chuck you in the can in one line.” [MMA Junkie]
