Arnold Allen Slices Through Dan Hooker For First Round Win – UFC London Highlights

Arnold Allen

Streaking UFC featherweight contender, Arnold Allen continues his run through the division — this time taking out division returner, Dan Hooker with a blitzing opening round TKO victory in the co-main event of UFC London.

Allen, a native of Ipswitch, entered his high-profile co-headliner against Hooker in the midst of a eight-fight winning run in the promotion, and currently holds the #7 rank in the division.

Striking with City Kickboxing staple, Hooker from the onset and throughout the round, Allen wobbled and almost dropped the Kiwi with a slew of winging hooks in a close, in-fight exchange, with Hooker actually clipping and nearly felling Allen as well.

However, regaining his composure and finding range once more, Allen wobbled Hooker with a one-two combination, and then a high-kick, forcing the New Zealander back to the fence with more pressure, before a slew of elbows on Hooker’s guard was enough to earn Allen his ninth consecutive UFC victory.
