Ferreira would be a step back for Hooker. He will most likely fight Gaethje, Poirier, or Lee. I can see Diego Ferreira accepting to fight Makhachev now at UFC 249.

i had it 2,4,5 for felder, i dont see how anyone could give hooker the 5th. he was rocked a couple of times and clinched to avoid exchanges. but i agree with the judges one late takedown wins a close round fetish. felder clearly landed the harder punches and hurt hooker multiple times during the fight.

Because people think that hitting a takedown that you do nothing with is worth more than significant strikes, despite what the scoring guidelines insist.
