UFC Fight Night 178 Dustin Poirier versus Dan Hooker Betting Preview

The lightweight division is one of the deepest in the UFC, and Dustin Poirier (No. 3) and Dan Hooker (No.5) are both ranked in the top five. Justin Gaethje is next in line for a title shot against Khabib Nurmagomedov after his win over Tony Ferguson, but the winner of this main event bout between Poirier and Hooker will solidify their spot near the front of the line. The two lightweight go head-to-head in the main event of the UFC on ESPN 12 this Saturday in Las Vegas.

Dustin Poirier UFC Betting Info

Dustin Poirier (25-6-0) earned a shot at the UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 242 with an impressive string of five straight victories that included wins over Anthony Pettis, Justin Gaethje, Eddie Alvarez, and Max Holloway. Poirier’s title shot ended in the third round by way of a rear-naked choke submission at the hands of Nurmagomedov, who is one of the most dominant fighters in MMA history with a professional record of 28-0. A loss to a fighter of Nurmagomedov’s caliber shouldn’t result in Poirier’s stock dropping too much in the eyes of UFC fans and bettors.

Dan Hooker UFC Betting Info

Dan Hooker (20-8-0) opened his UFC career with a disappointing 3-3 record in the featherweight division, but since switching to lightweight in 2017 he has compiled a 7-1 record over his last eight fights. That stretch includes a knockout win over Gilbert Burns, who has since won his last six fights and is set to fight for the UFC Welterweight Championship in July. Hooker has won each of his last three fights as well, earning the Performance of the Night bonus with his knockout win over James Vick and Fight of the Night honors in his split decision win over Paul Felder.

Poirier versus Hooker UFC Betting Prediction

This one should be a lot of fun. Both of these fighters have seen only two of their last eight fights go the distance. In a five round fight, it’s highly likely that Poirier and Hooker will keep this fight out of the judges’ hands. An upset win by Hooker wouldn’t be too shocking given his impressive run in the lightweight division, but he’ll face his toughest test to date in Dustin Poirier. Poirier’s striking ability should give the former title contender the upper hand in this main event showdown.
