Daniel Hooker has been granted his wish of a top tier opponent as he is set to face sixth-ranked Edson Barboza at UFC Milwaukee on Dec. 15.


The New Zealand Herald first reported the news Wednesday after confirming the lightweight clash with the UFC.

Barboza (19-6-0) is coming off two one-sided losses. Kevin Lee finished him in the fifth round of their main event clash at UFC Atlantic City. He went into the New Jersey bout coming off a loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov, who dominated him over five rounds in the co-main event of UFC 219.

I like it ! Definitely a winnable fight for Hooker but I think defensively he still leaves himself open at times. The blue print is definitely out on Barboza now though, constant forward pressure, crowd him and stay in close range.

Barboza has had a tough time of it lately, just going up against guys that are on the rise and hungry.

This fight and now I'm pretty sure Vick vs Felder are gonna be on it as well. 1 more fight preferably a Main Event and this Fox card will be the shit.
