It’s The Teenage Dream vs. Kid Dynamite at UFC 245
Sure to be an explosive fight, Chase “The Teenage Dream” Hooper (8-0-1) is set to battle Daniel “Kid Dynamite” Teymur (7-3-0) at UFC 245.
After a decisive victory against Canaan Kawaihae at a Dana White’s Contender Series event in July 2018, Hooper was signed to a UFC development deal at the age of 18. Since the Contender Series, the featherweight has gone on to earn two more wins for the promotions Island Fights and Titan FC.
At his last UFC fight in June, 31-year-old Teymur defeated Sung Bin Jo (9-1-0) by unanimous decision in his home country of Sweden.
Prior to this win, the Allstars Training Center fighter lost his first three bouts in the promotion. UFC 245 takes place on December 14th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card includes Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington – for the welterweight title, Max Holloway vs. Alexander Volkanovski – for the featherweight title, and Amanda Nunes vs. Germaine de Randamie – for women’s bantamweight title.
