Fans brutally roasted Dan Hooker after he expressed a desire to be a matchmaker for Dana White's Power Slap League.

The league, which is set to air on TBS on January 18, has been criticized for its lack of safety measures for participants and the potential for head trauma. White is already facing backlash over the fighter's pay issue in the UFC, and this latest venture seems to have landed him in hot water yet again.

While some fighters have endorsed the contest, several have criticized the sport. Taking to his Twitter handle, Dan Hooker recently tweeted about the unique sport and jokingly claimed that he would like to work as a matchmaker for Slap Fight content.

The Kiwi-fighter wrote:

"Dream job: Slap fight matchmaker. 🤤"

While Hooker might have tweeted it in a humorous way, fans didn't take it that way. Responding to the lightweight, one of the fans wrote:

"How much did Dana pay you for this?"

Dan Hooker evaluates Paddy Pimblett as lightweight

Appearing in a recent interview with It's Time For Sports, Dan Hooker claimed he isn't impressed with Paddy Pimblett's skills and does not believe he is good enough to compete with the top fighters in the lightweight division.

Giving his take on 'The Baddy', the Kiwi fighter had this to say:

"[The UFC] want to keep [the hype] going as long as they can, so keep him away from [the best]. Keep him on the, maybe not even the Jared Gordons, you know what I mean!? I don't know... The benefit of the UFC is getting you a title shot in the shortest time possible... Why doesn't he want to take that path? He wouldn't if he didn't have the skills to hang."
