Dan Hooker faced an ordeal just to get to UFC 266 on Saturday night but he made the most of his trip after winning a lopsided decision over Nasrat Haqparast.
Thanks to travel restrictions and awaiting a visa approval, Hooker didn’t arrive in Las Vegas until late Thursday night but he still made weight and then put on a strong performance over all three rounds against Haqparast on the preliminary card.
When it was over, the scores read 30-27, 30-27 and 30-26 with Hooker scoring the victory.
While he certainly faced his own struggles to make it to the fight, Hooker paid homage to Haqparast, who dealt with his own problems getting to the fight after he returned home to German following the tragic death of his mother just recently.
“There was a lot of challenges to get in here tonight but nothing compared to what Nasrat faced,” Hooker said. “It’s incredible that he showed up. My journey was very easy compared to him.”
