UFC Fight Night on ESPN: Poirier vs. Hooker is set for this Saturday, June 27 from UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The main event features No. 3-ranked lightweight contender Dustin Poirier (25-6-0) taking on No. 5-ranked Dan Hooker (20-8-0).  In the co-main event, Mike Perry (13-6-0) faces Mickey Gall (6-2-0) in a welterweight bout.

UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Hooker will air on ESPN and ESPN Deportes in English and Spanish, and be simulcast on ESPN+ (also in English and Spanish), beginning with the Prelims at 6 p.m. ET and the Main Card at 8 p.m. ET. The events will be closed to the public and will be produced with only essential personnel in attendance.

Considered one of the most talented fighters in the lightweight division, Poirier enters the Octagon for the first time since losing the a lightweight unification bout against division champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in September of 2019.  Poirier has secured wins over former UFC champions Max Holloway (twice), Eddie Alvarez and Anthony Pettis. Hooker, who is on a three-fight win streak — including a headlining victory against Paul Felder on his home soil in New Zealand — will look to insert himself as one of the dominant names of his division.

The co-main event features a welterweight bout between Mike Perry  and Mickey Gall. Perry looks to get back to his winning ways, while Gall will be making his first appearance since defeating Salim Touahri on the undercard of the Colby Covington vs. Robbie Lawler bout in August 2019.
