The UFC continues to roll out the fights.

On Friday, the Las Vegas-based promotion announced even more with the biggest one undoubtedly being a pivotal lightweight contest between former interim champion Dustin Poirier and rising contender Dan Hooker.

They will headline UFC Vegas 4 which takes place June 27 at the Apex facility in Las Vegas. The pair were previously scheduled to headline UFC San Diego last month until the event was canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

However, fans won’t have to wait that much longer as they will now collide in just over two weeks in what could be a Fight of the Year candidate.
