A featherweight clash between Hatsu Hioki and Daniel Hooker has been added to the UFC’s Fight Night bill in Adelaide, Australia, on May 10.
The promotion confirmed the pairing on Sunday following an initial report from The New Zealand Herald. UFC Fight Night “Hunt vs. Miocic” takes place at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre and is headlined by a heavyweight showdown between Mark Hunt and Stipe Miocic.
Hioki, 31, has only been finished once in his career, a loss to Charles Oliveira via anaconda choke at UFC Fight Night “Te Huna vs. Marquardt.” A veteran of 37 fights, Hioki will be making his eighth Octagon appearance in May.
Hooker, 25, impressed in his UFC debut when he finished Ian Entwistle last June. “The Hangman” went on to drop his next outing, losing a decision to Maximo Blanco at UFC Fight Night “Hunt vs. Nelson.” Hooker has finished 10 of his 11 professional victories.
