Jordan Leavitt is gearing up to face Chase Hooper in a much-anticipated showdown.

Leavitt (11-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) will take on Hooper (12-3-1 MMA, 4-3 UFC) on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 232. The event will air on ESPN+ from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Speaking to MMA Junkie Radio, Leavitt admitted that he’s a fan of Hooper, which adds a layer of unpredictability to the fight.

“This is my first time fighting somebody that I like and I’ve been a fan of,” Leavitt said. He continued, “So, I think it’ll be a little more uncharacteristically violent as we compensate for those nice feelings, but I can’t tell you how this fight is going to go.”

Leavitt expressed his desire to be the first person to submit Chase Hooper and is prepared for a unique and unpredictable fight.
