  • The main event fight between Dustin Poirier-Dan Hooker has +210 odds of ending in Round 1.
  • Dustin Poirier is the favorite with -213 odds to beat Dan Hooker (+183) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday.
  • Dan Hooker is listed at +625 odds to beat Dustin Poirier by decision.

LAS VEGAS – Dana White and the UFC have consistently given bettors something to bet on amid the coronavirus pandemic. Unlike many other sports, the UFC has been able to still hold events in the United States.

The UFC is hosting the next event in its Fight Night series that features a main event lightweight fight between Dustin Poirier (25-6) and Dan Hooker (20-8).

The contrasting styles of Poirier-Hooker should make for a closely contested fight between veteran fighters and an exciting all-around fight for UFC bettors.

This will be Dustin Poirier’s first fight since losing via submission to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 242 and he is a -213 favorite over Dan Hooker in his return.

Poirier will need a bounce-back win here especially as he looks to get another shot at the lightweight title.

However, the +183 odds on Dan Hooker shouldn’t be avoided as he’s won his last three fights and holds the advantage in reach and height when looking at the tale of the tape.

For bettors that want to bet on more than just who wins the fight BetOnline has listed a cluster of betting props for fights on the main card of UFC Fight Night event this weekend.

Poirier vs. Hooker Betting Props

Poirier to Win By TKO/KO

  • No -160
  • Yes +130

A total of 13 of Poirier’s 25 have come via KO or TKO as he’s a polished southpaw striker.

With a majority of his victories coming via KO/TKO, the same should be expected of Poirier in this fight. Take the +130 odds on him winning by a knockout in this fight since Poirier is the favorite to win.

The +130 odds will net a better return than Poirier’s money line odds and that’s one advantage of betting on this prop.

Fight To End in Round 1

  • No -270
  • Yes +210

Both Poirier and Hooker are powerful strikers that can end a fight with just one punch.

Place a small wager on the +210 odds that this fight ends in Round 1. Two of Hooker’s last five fights ended in the first round so the potential for a Round 1 conclusion to this fight is there.

With +210 odds on a neutral bet, this prop is a good way to bet without having to choose a winner.

Dan Hooker to win by Decision

  • No -1100
  • Yes +625

Hooker’s last two fights have been decided by the judges and this fight could follow that trend.

Poirier is an experienced fighter and isn’t known to get knocked out much which means this fight will more than likely go the distance and be headed to the judge’s table.

Take the +625 odds on Hooker to win and possibly parlay this prop with his +183 money line odds to further capitalize on the underdog odds.

The UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Hooker will be held Saturday, June 27 with the preliminary rounds beginning at 5 p.m. ET and the main card starting at 8 p.m. ET.
