Steven Peterson (18-9) vs Chase Hooper (10-1-1)

Featherweight (145)

Steven Peterson

Ridiculously durable, aggressive on the feet and surprisingly competent submission grappler, Steven Peterson is a long underrated name in the UFC. While his work is often ugly to watch, Peterson’s solid TDD, stinging jab and vast experience must surely give the old vet the nod.

Chase Hooper

Hooper is an incredibly difficult fighter to back after his past couple of fights. Pushed by the UFC far too early in his career after riding unprecedented success, Hooper lacks any sort of striking game. There is a huge amount of guesswork whether Hooper will be able to get the fight to the mat, and even before then, if the twenty-one-year-old can limit the punishment sustained on the feet. Having said that, on the mat, his massive 6’1″ frame is a nightmare for opponents to hang with.

Predicted Result: Peterson Decision

Hooper is an incredibly difficult fighter to back after his past couple of fights. There is a huge amount of guesswork whether Hooper will be able to get the fight to the mat, and even before then, if the twenty-one-year-old can limit the punishment sustained on the feet. Of course, on the mat, Hooper’s huge 6’1″ frame is a nightmare for opponents to hang with. Old vet, Steven Peterson, is stylistic torture for Hooper, however. Ridiculously durable, aggressive on the feet and surprisingly competent submission grappler, Peterson should be able to keep the fight standing long enough to dominate every round.
