THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

One of the longest serving UFC fighters, Jim Miller, welcomes an up-and-coming Kiwi to the octagon who is looking to add his biggest name to his record.

Hooker is 5-3 in the UFC but is coming off two huge finishes over Ross Pearson and Marc Diakiese. He brutally knocked out Pearson with a knee and submitted the extremely dangerous Diakiese with a guillotine choke.

Miller is coming off three losses but these were against top contenders in Dustin Poirier, Anthony Pettis and Francisco Trinaldo. Although Miller is struggling at the end of his career, you can never count him out and he not only has the experience but also the skill level to put Hooker away.

THE PREDICTION

Hooker has proven he is a natural finisher and is as equally dangerous on the feet as he is on the mat but Miller’s ground skills are a notch above most lightweights. The combination of wrestling and elite level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has allowed him to amass 13 submissions so Hooker will try and keep the distance.

This has to be one of Hooker’s toughest opponents but if he utilizes his significant reach advantage effectively he will be able to negate the strengths of Miller and inflict match-winning damage on the feet.

Winner: Hooker via KO/TKO
