However, Hooker knows why Gaethje is picking against him and it benefits the interim lightweight champion. 

“I think he just wants Dustin to succeed,” Hooker explained to MMA Junkie. “Dustin knocked him out, so if someone knocks you out, you obviously want to see him do well and he would love for him to knock me out so makes him look a little bit better. If Dustin flatlined him and I flatline Dustin, it kinda makes Gaethje look a bit beatable to me. So yeah, I can definitely see why he’s throwing his hat towards Dustin.”

“It’ll be hard, Dustin is a pretty durable guy. We’ll see if he can take the shots. He is pretty confident he can take the shots, everyone thinks he can take the shots and he’s gonna beat me up so we’ll see. I’m pretty confident I can put him away. The way I’m approaching it and the way I’m looking at it, from what I’ve seen, I’m pretty confident that I can finish him.”
