If you have plans Saturday night you need to cancel them right now. If you’ve never seen a ufc match, that needs to change this Saturday. If you have seen a UFC fight and thought it was nothing special, you have to watch on Saturday night.
With sports coming back right around the corner I think Dana White is doing an incredible job at lining up absolutely insane fights to go more people engaged in the ufc world. This Saturday will be nice different as the main event is Dustin Poirier (25-6) vs Dan Hooker (20-8). I can’t even begin to articulate through the use of words how fired the hell up I to watch this fight. It’s going to be an absolutely insane fight.
Being a five round fight, I have seen it time and time again where both fighters had put in the fourth round and it just becomes an absolute blood bath, and that is going to be the case this Saturday. Hooker has incredible knockout ability, two fights ago sending everyone home early at the 2 minute mark of the first round against James Vick. However his competition across the octagon is cut from a very similar cloth. Poirier over the last three years has turned the lights out on Anthony Pettis, Justin Gaethje, and Eddie Alvarez. Three massive names in the world of UFC.
This is probably I fight I won’t bet a single dollar on but will be the fight I am most turned into. Start to finish these to are going to be looking for that one punch knockout and it’s going to happen, I just don’t know who will land it.
If you know nothing about the UFC this is the main event you need to tune into. I can not stress that enough. You will get hooked into the sport so quickly. It exactly what happened to me. Please please please make sure you have your tv dialed into espn on Saturday night. Once again there is still absolutely nothing else to watch. You’ve binged everything on nextflix and Hulu already, you’ve got someone’s password for Disney + and realized it’s absolute trash, you’ve already seen the movie they are showing on fx, so put the freakin fight on!
