The headliner of UFC Fight Night 169 promises to be a barn-burner and the fans can't wait to see two of the most promising lightweights in the promotion - Dan Hooker and Paul Felder square off inside the Octagon.

The pair have been going back and forth on social media for a while now and Hooker just raised the level of intensity by promising to "fight to the death" against Felder inside the Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand on 22nd February, 2020. (h/t BJ Penn)

Felder and Hooker were at New Zealand for their first face-off and the bad blood between the men was quite evident as they looked each other in the eye.

Speaking to Brad Lewis of NewsHub, Hooker promised to do everything he possibly can to get the win against Felder.

“I haven’t even thought about losing because it’s not an option,” Hooker said. “My back is against the wall. In this venue here, on this land, he will have to put me out cold. I will fight tooth and nail to the death. I promise you that.”

Hooker revealed that things got personal after Felder disrespected him on social media, taking a dig at the former's surname in a photo he posted on Twitter.

“After my last fight, he started making fun of me and things around me. That respect, that gentlemen’s agreement, is now off the table because I’ve got something coming for him. There is definitely a little bit of bad blood there now.”
