You can live stream this battle of top ranked lightweights by watching Poirier vs. Hooker in UFC Fight Night , available on both ESPN and ESPN Plus (ESPN+).

UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Hooker — The Main Event Preview

Dustin "The Diamond" Poirier (25-6) is the third ranked contender in the lightweight division, and he's coming off of a loss in his first full title shot in the UFC. He put on a great show, but lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was too much for Poirier, submitting him in the third round. Prior to that, he had been on a successful tear by earning the interim title and notching wins over huge names in the sport like Max Holloway, Anthony Pettis, Justin Gaethje and Eddie Alvarez. Gaethje now has the interim lightweight title, and has next on Khabib when he's able to fight again. So if Poirier wants to earn a rematch with either of them he will need to get back to winning quickly, starting with a tough battle tonight.

Dan "The Hangman" Hooker (20-8) is the fifth ranked contender in the lightweight division, and his record is nearly as impressive as Poirier's since his return to lightweight. Hooker began his UFC run as a featherweight, going 3-3 with no back-to-back wins. Since moving to the UFC lightweight division, Hooker is 7-1 with three combined Performance or Fight of the Night awards. His last two wins have come against other top ten ranked fighters, so he's earned this big chance to move up. If he keeps rolling, a title fight could be in his future as well.
