Dan Hooker will now be facing Nasrat Haqparast on the 25th of September at UFC 266. He hasn’t competed since his brutal knockout loss against Michael Chandler at UFC 257 in January, this year.

Haqparast, on the other hand, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Rafa Garcia in March 2021 at UFC Fight Night Night: Edwards vs Muhammad. A win against Hooker, would do a world of good for his rankings.

Tony Ferguson, meanwhile, is having his back against the wall. He is coming off a loss against Beneil Dariush at UFC 262. ‘El Cucuy’ was thoroughly dominated throughout the fight. He is winless in three fights and will be looking forward to getting out of the rut, once he steps inside the Octagon next.
