Former UFC interim lightweight champ Dustin Poirier is ready to clash against Dan Hooker in the UFC Fight Night headliner this weekend.

The event will be on Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and will be broadcasted by ESPN 12. Besides the main fight between Poirier and Hooker, there are other solid contests.

Let’s breakdown the best for this weekend:

Dustin Poirier Vs. Dan Hooker

Poirier Vs. Hooker Who Will Win?

Poirier Vs. Hooker Odds To Win
Dustin Poirier -220 MyBookie Sportsbook
Dan Hooker +180

Rounds
Over 2.5 -120 MyBookie Sportsbook
Under 2.5 -110

Poirier enters this fight after a loss against Khabib Nurmagomedov in his last outing. Let’s be real, everybody has failed against Khabib in recent times. The loss cut a four-fights win streak for Poirier.

Dustin Poirier jumps as the favorite at -220. There is no surprise here. His resume is extensive, and he can win fights with different styles. Two of his last four wins were via TKO, one via submission and one by decision.

Dan Hooker comes into this event with three straight wins. His last victory was over Paul Felder early in February in a Fight Night event in New Zealand. Hooker is not a massive name in the division. He’s known, but to make a real splash, he needs to beat guys like Dustin Poirier.

Hooker has been knockout just once in his UFC career. Edson Barboza earned with a KO win after a substantial blow to the body. But I see Dustin Poirier winning this fight before the distance. He’s aggressive and a much better fighter overall.

Mike Perry vs. Mickey Gall

Perry Vs. Gall Odds To Win
Mike Perry -320 MyBookie Sportsbook
Mickey Gall +260

Perry Vs. Gall Who Totals

Perry Vs. Gall Odds Total Rounds
Over 1.5 -115 MyBookie Sportsbook
Under 1.5 -115

Things haven’t been great for Mike Perry lately, losing three of his last four outings, including two in a row. In December, Geoff Neal finished him after over a minute of the fight with a brutal kick to the head, followed by a set of solid punches.

Mickey Gall doesn’t have much of a resume in the UFC with only eight fights since entering in 2015. Despite his boxing background, he hasn’t won a contest via TKO in his short career. Gall also trains Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling. Patience and a slow pace might be his best chance for an upset.

I don’t love picking only favorites, but Mike Perry should bounce back from his recent losses. Mickey Gall lacks power in his punches to keep Perry away. Perry should take the W here

Brendan Allen Vs. Kyle Daukaus

Allen Vs. Daukaus Who Will Win?

Allen Vs. Daukaus Odds To Win
Brendan Allen -290 MyBookie Sportsbook
Kyle Daukaus +230

Allen Vs. Daukaus Totlas

Allen Vs. Daukaus Total Rounds
Over 1.5 -135 MyBookie Sportsbook
Under 1.5 +105

The fight between Brendan Allen and Kyle Daukaus is intriguing. Allen is the clear favorite at -290, but both are young guys trying to make a name for themselves.

Brendan Allen is a big favorite because he’s riding a six-game winning streak, including wins over Tom Breese and Kevin Holland. He loves takedowns and finishing things on the floor.

Kyle Daukaus is 9-0 on his MMA career and the Cage Fury FC middleweight champion. He’s a dangerous fighter. If Allen doesn’t finish him early or doesn’t take him seriously, things could get ugly.

There’s a prop bet at MyBookie about the fight finishing with a submission win at +170. That’s the best bet available.

If I have to go with one of the two fighters, Brendan Allen makes the most sense

Gian Villante Vs. Maurice Greene

Villante Vs. Greene Who Will Win?

Villante Vs. Greene Odds To Win
Gian Villante +195 MyBookie Sportsbook
Maurice Greene -235

Villante Vs. Greene Totals

Villante Vs. Greene Total Rounds
Over 2.5 +130 MyBookie Sportsbook
Under 2.5 -160

Early in the night, we will see a battle of heavyweights between Maurice Greene and Gian Villante. Green is the favorite at -235 at MyBookie, although he comes to this fight with two losses in a row, including one this year against Aleksei Oleinik.

Gian Villante hasn’t fought in over a year and a half. His last outing was in February 2019 when he lost to Michał Oleksiejczuk.

More than a year without fighting is a little too long for my comfort. I have to go with Maurice Greene here.

Luis Peña Vs. Khama Worthy

Peña Vs. Worthy Who Will Win?

Peña Vs. Worthy Odds To Win
Luis Peña -275 MyBookie Sportsbook
Khama Worthy +215

Peña Vs. Worthy Totals

Peña Vs. Worthy Total Rounds
Over 2.5 -110 MyBookie Sportsbook
Under 2.5 -120

The best contest of the preliminary card will have Luis Peña trying to win his second fight this year.

Khama Worthy is on a six-fight win streak, but his last outing was almost a year ago when he beat Devonte Smith as a +650 underdog.

Worthy is a dangerous fighter. At +215, I like his chances against Peña. Luis is not a great finisher, and Khama is a little unpredictable. It’s tough to deal with a fighter that can push the pace and hit you with different attacks.
