Next fight: Dan Hooker, UFC Fight Night: Felder vs. Hooker

A vicious and precise striker, Paul Felder is one of the many dangerous contenders among the UFC lightweight division. ‘The Irish Dragon’ has fared well in the 155lbs shark tank since entering the promotion in 2014, boasting notable wins over Edson Barboza, James Vick, and Charles Oliveira. His durability and spinning attacks have ensured he is now stamped as a fan favourite, and Felder is quickly becoming quite the analyst with his work as part of the UFC’s broadcast team. While the American’s razor thin decision win over Barboza is still disputed by some, he has the chance to allay any doubts over his ability when he faces Dan Hooker in his first main event slot at the upcoming Auckland fight night.
