Dan Hooker Jalin Turner UFC 290

After an insane battle with Jalin Turner at UFC 290, Dan Hooker has now revealed the true extent of the damage he suffered, and clarified if he did truly “break his arm.

After the split-decision victory, ‘The Hangman’ was interviewed by Joe Rogan inside the octagon. Hooker made for quite a sight, as his hair was stained red from all the blood spilled during the fight. “He’s (Jalin Turner) a tough kid,” Hooker chuckled. “Scrappy… I wanted my hair pink (with blood) from the fight and I got it.”

Rogan would ask Dan Hooker if he broke his arm during the fight and the fighter grinned and said: “Just a scratch, but, we’ll have to see.” This would prompt Hooker and Rogan to begin laughing, and later on ‘The Hangman’ would indeed go to the hospital where x-rays would show he broke his wrist during the insane battle.
