Hooker is currently recovering from arm surgery. The lightweight boxer was asked to perform a triangle on the producer of the program.

The 44-second video clip captured the unexpected turn of events as Dan Hooker executed a triangle submission on the show’s producer, Mitch Farr. As the footage unfolds, Farr incessantly taps out while Hooker maintains the hold without leaving.

Eventually, Farr loses consciousness which prompts Hooker to release the hold. The aftermath shows Farr disoriented, awakening to the realization that he had slept well into 2024. The video concludes with the host commending that it would be a captivating.

The widely circulated video showcased Hooker successfully securing the triangle after Farr’s two initial tap-outs. The evident outcome of the submission hold increased the tension in the exchange.

Despite grappling with an arm injury that curtailed his 2023 campaign and led to him withdrawing from a bout against Bobby Green, Dan Hooker’s resilience remained unwavering. With a career spanning 35 matches, Hooker not only demonstrates prowess as a combatant but also as an adept submission grappler.

Following a fractured arm that disrupted his return to competition at UFC on ESPN 52, Hooker provided an update on his condition through an Instagram post. Confirming the success of the surgery, Hooker hinted at a potential return for the historic UFC 300 event.

This injury wasn’t Hooker’s first encounter with arm-related setbacks. He suffered a broken arm in a previous bout at UFC 290 against Jalin Turner in July.

Hooker revealed that the initial injury hadn’t fused correctly, leading to this unfortunate recurrence. To ensure optimal healing, the recent surgery involved infusing bone marrow into the affected area.
