FIGHTER BIO

New Zealand mixed martial artist currently competing in the lightweight division of the ULtimate Fighting Championship. Recently moved to #14 ranked contender in the official UFC lightweight rankings. Admitting he doesn’t feel like he’s won unless he takes the other guy out, Hooker has finished 16 of his 17 professional fights before the final bell. Suitably dubbed, “The Hangman” fights to his tall frame with an arsenal of chokes, knees and elbows to end his opponent’s night early. Since moving up to lightweight in the UFC, Hooker remains undefeated.
