UFC Fight Night: Felder vs Hooker (also known as UFC Fight Night 168 and UFC on ESPN+ 26) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on February 23, 2020 at Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand
Hooker (19-8 MMA, 9-4 UFC) will headline his first UFC show, a five-round lightweight bout vs. Paul Felder (17-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC) at UFC on ESPN+ 26 in his home country of New Zealand.
The two engaged in a very intense face-off last month in Auckland, and Felder had some words to say about their upcoming encounter in a recent interview with MMA Junkie.
Among them, Felder mentioned that he plans on knocking Hooker out in front of all his friends and family, and naturally, “The Hangman” didn’t take too well to that. He felt the fight was going to sell out regardless, considering the implications of the matchup in the division.
