City Kickboxing’s Dan Hooker was recently finished for the first time inside the Octagon by Edson Barboza. Expect the Kiwi to try and bounce back, but he will have to do it against a Top 15-ranked James Vick, who himself is hungry for a victory after two straight losses. The two lightweights will come to blows on July 20 at UFC on ESPN 4. The numbers below should give you a glimpse of this thrilling match.
Longest winning streakVick started his career with nine straight victories without a single defeat. This marks his longest winning run to date, spanning almost five years. It includes five fights inside the Octagon, in which he beat Ramsey Nijem, Valmir Lazaro, Nick Hein, Jake Matthews and Glaico Franca.
Six consecutive triumphs is the longest for Hooker, meanwhile. It happened from April 2012 to June 2014 and includes his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut, in which he TKO’d Ian Entwistle. Hooker also beat Nick Patterson, Sboh Ceeh Khuboni, Chengjie Wu and Rusty McBride twice.
Finishing rateHooker prides of a high finishing rate. Of his 17 career wins, only one has reached the final bell. He owns nine victories by KO or TKO and seven by submission, making for an impressive 94 percent finishing rate. His most notable victims are Jim Miller, Ross Pearson and Gilbert Burns.
Vick is quite the finisher himself, as eight of his 13 victories came via stoppage — three by KO or TKO and five by submission. That’s a 61 percent finishing rate for the Team Lloyd Irvin standout. He has stopped the likes of Abel Trujillo, Hein and Nijem.
