Dustin Poirier stood up for Dan Hooker

Most fans do not believe that Dan hooker will be able to make a serious competition with Dustin Poirier, and the former interim UFC lightweight champion does not like that fans downplay the complexity of the task before him.

“To be honest, I don’t like it,” Porje is quoted as saying by MMA Junkie. “This guy is dangerous. He is not just in the top five fighters of the UFC lightweight division. I never look behind my opponents ‘ backs, and he’s the only one I’m focused on right now. 25 minutes with hooker and we’ll see how it ends. I don’t like the fact that many fans and analysts underestimate him, because he is a dangerous guy, and I am very seriously preparing for a fight with him”.

In a recent interview, hooker promised to knock out Porje, but the American does not attach importance to the opponent’s treshtok.

“Now I’m immune to Tristomo. I see some things on Twitter, different headlines, but I don’t read or delve into what is written. He does what he has to do. It is desirable that he himself believes what he says, because this weekend we will find out everything”

Recall that the lightweight bout between Dustin Porier and Dan hooker will be the main event of the UFC on ESPN 12 tournament, which will be held on June 27 in Las Vegas.

John Jones accused the American clothing brand of racism

The current UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, who recently took away paint from protesters on the streets of his city, accused the famous American clothing brand Hollister of racism, outraged by the inscription “negro” in Spanish, placed on the price tag with clothes.

“I know how “black” sounds in Spanish, but I still feel that Hollister’s choice of words is insensitive and offensive. You can call me easily impressed, but today I was insulted,” wrote Jones on Twitter, having published the corresponding video.

I’m totally aware how to say the word black in Spanish.. I still feel like #Hollister‘s choice of words were insensitive and insulting.. Call me sensitive if you want but today I was totally insulted. pic.twitter.com/vRroEK5uaY

To the bewildered comments of subscribers, Jones said that only black jeans were marked with a double label.

“It may seem silly to some, but the other jeans weren’t marked like this. Tomorrow I will come again and make a video, ” the fighter promised.

Note that Jones himself lives in Albuquerque, new Mexico, where more than 46% of the population is Hispanic, so double labels on price tags and signs are not something surprising there.
