Chase Hooper appeared on Season One of the Dana White Contender Series, Won his fight but didn’t get the UFC contract but in the future he probably will!! Chase Hooper on the Contender Series at 18 years old!! That’s insane!! Now Hooper is the Co-Main Event for Titan FC 55.
At just a couple months shy of his 19th birthday, Hooper was undefeated in his amateur and pro MMA career and appeared on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Serieson UFC Fight Pass. He won his fight against fellow undefeated fighter Canaan Kawaihae, but did not receive a full-time UFC contract as a result.
However, the still-undefeated Hooper did receive a developmental contract from the UFC for his win, but didn’t really have the opportunity to fully soak in his experience on the show. http://www.mmawreckage.com/2019/06/15/titan-fcs-chase-hooper-getting-an-early-start/
Chase Hooper after winning his NEXT fight against Titan FC former Featherweight Champion Luis Gomez, Hooper can get hit Titan FC Featherweight Title Shot against Jason Soares!!
Hooper is excited about his opportunity with Titan FC, and described the organization as “super professional – probably the most professional promotion I’ve ever met.”
As far as Hooper’s first fight with Titan against Luis Gomez (7-3) – who previously faced UFC veterans like Sodiq Yusuff and Dan Ige – he is treating it the same as every fight in his young career.
“There’s always a lot on the line in my mind,” Hooper said. “I put pressure on myself and just work on my game. [Gomez’s] style works well against my style – I expect him to keep coming forward in this fight.”http://www.mmawreckage.com/2019/06/15/titan-fcs-chase-hooper-getting-an-early-start/
