Despite that ending, Hooper has displayed a willingness to attack in numerous ways as he rose up the ranks, collecting four submissions to go along with three KO/TKOs and two decisions of his nine professional victories. He landed a takedown and two submissions in addition to landing 20 significant strikes in an overwhelming victory for his debut but has a slight upgrade in opponent ahead on the schedule in the veteran Caceres. Hooper carries a three-inch height and one-inch reach advantage into the bout.

Scores tough win in UFC debut
FeatherweightUFC
December 14, 2019
Hooper defeated Daniel Teymur via TKO (punches) at 4:34 of Round 1 at UFC 245 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was not the rout that the end result would lead you to believe. Making his UFC debut, the 20-year-old Hooper had to survive a very deep submission attempt and several big strikes from Teymur in order to emerge victorious. Hooper's long-term potential is obvious. He's young, massive (6-foot-1) for the featherweight division, and excels at using his long limbs to clamp on submission attempts. He looked very comfortable on the mat and considerably less comfortable on the feet. Hooper is so young that it doesn't really matter if he wins or loses his fights for the next few years. As long as he continues to improve each and every time he fights, Hooper will be headed in the right direction. To give you an idea of how young Hooper truly is, he was born one month after the release of the hit movie "The Sixth Sense".
