Chase Hooper is officially the youngest fighter in UFC history.
“The Teenage Dream” will make his UFC debut at UFC 245 on December 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Hooper joins Sage Northcutt as the only teenagers ever to sign a UFC contract.
The Washington prospect is an undefeated (8-0) prospect fighting out of Enumclaw, Washington at just 19 years old. He recently took to Instagram and announced his biggest fight news to date.
Hooper turned pro in October 2017. Since, he has been busy racking up 8 wins, 5 of those happening last year. After earning a developmental contract on Dana White’s Contender Series, Hooper has won 2 fights, one by submission and the other via TKO.
He’s fought for organizations like Island Fights, CFFC, CageSports, and Titan FC. But now he’s ready for the big stage. Although no opponent has been announced, Chase will debut at UFC 245 in December and he’s more than ready to show his skills to the world.
Undefeated as a pro, the future is bright for young Chase Hooper. Although he’ll turn 20 before his first UFC fight, “The Teenage Dream” is here to stay.
