Fight video: Watch Dan Hooker lay out James Vick ahead of UFC Auckland


Dan Hooker won a Performance of the Night bonus with this first-round knockout of James Vick at UFC Fight Night San Antonio last year.

Next up for Hooker is a main event match-up with Paul Felder on home soil in Auckland, New Zealand, on Saturday, February 22.

Following an up-and-down attempt at featherweight, Hooker returned to lightweight in 2017. He has since racked up a record of 6-1 in his last seven bouts, putting him on the cusp of title contention.

Should he score an impressive victory over Felder in Auckland, Hooker could be ready to stake his claim for a shot at the winner of the UFC 249 main event between lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and challenger Tony Ferguson.
