Chase Hooper (9-0-1)

Potential Winning Pick
This fight features a newcomer to the UFC in Hooper and a proven track record of Caceres. Both of these guys present great opportunities, but are the odds justified?
Caceres has been on an up and down roller coaster since he started. He has great qualities of striking and grappling. His downfall seems to be defending himself from being submitted and takedowns.
Hooper is very young at 20 years old. He may not have the experience needed to close out a fight, but you can almost throw that out the window because this kid is something else. His fights have shown that he is aggressive in his strikes and submissions.
