Who will win Poirier vs Hooker?

The undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov is the undisputed king of the lightweight division. Justin Gaethje, following his impressive victory over Tony Ferguson, is next in line. There is also ongoing uncertainty around Conor McGregor's plans.

Outside of those three, Poirier and Hooker would love the chance to get their names into the title conversation. Poirier is currently the number-3-ranked lightweight and has a 25-6 win-loss record. He is trying to rebuild after a title loss to Nurmagomedov in September last year.

Hooker (20-8) is ranked fifth and currently riding a 3-fight winning streak. He has a huge opportunity in front of him in this fight. We're going to support the Kiwi in making that four straight wins, maybe with just a little Antipodean bias.
