Hooker: This fight nearly didn’t happen due to visa issues suffered this week of the contest — by both men — but now that it is finally confirmed, I can confidently say that Dan Hooker is the superior fighter in this match up. While he has his own vulnerabilities and is certainly not bulletproof, the caliber of competition he has been going toe-to-toe with pales in comparison with what Haqparast has ever seen. I expect nothing less than an all out war, but I favor “Hangman” in a war unless he is drastically jet lagged from his marred trip overseas to compete this weekend.
