UFC lightweight Dan Hooker will be the quick replacement of Rafael Dos Anjos and will be fighting Islam Makhachev at UFC 267 on October 30 at the Etihad Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Dan Hooker recently competed at UFC 266 and got a dominant victory over division rising talent Nasrat. The fight was a completely one-sided performance which was necessary for Dan as he was coming off two losses. Rafael pulled out of the fight last week citing an injury. UFC was then looking for a quick replacement for Islam Makhachev and now Dan has taken that spot on just one month’s notice.

Dan Hooker last fought Nasrat Haqparast on September 25, 2021, at UFC 266. The fight was a must-win scenario for Dan as he lost his last two fights against Michael Chandler and Dustin Poirier. Dan stood up to this moment and showed the UFC fans why he belongs among the best of his division. He dominated Nasrat in all aspects of the game and won the fight via unanimous decision.

Before that win, he fought Michael Chandler at UFC 257. Chandler was making his UFC debut and was welcomed by Dan Hooker. The fight was a brutal TKO loss for Hooker as Chandler dropped him in the very first round of the fight. Now he is set to fight another top contender in the division in Islam Makhachev.

 Islam Makhachev

Islam Makhachev is riding an amazing winning streak in the UFC’s already stacked lightweight division. He is on an eight-fight unbeaten run and has won all the fights dominantly. Islam is now the dominant force in the division just like his best friend and training partner, the former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. In his last fight, he fought Thiago Moises at UFC on ESPN 26. He won the fight by a rear-naked choke submission in the fourth round after dominating him for three rounds.

The fight between Dan Hooekr and Islam Makhachev will be an important one for the division as the winner will get a chance to fight the top contenders in the division and will be just one or two fights away from a potential title fight.
