    THE DREAM IS STILL ALIVE

    Chase Hooper has just pulled out an absolutely sensation last-gasp submission victory.

    The Dana White Contender's Series graduate was taken to school for the first two rounds of his clash with Peter Barrett, who had a clear advantage with his striking.

    Hooper, however, wasn't undeterred and rallied late in the third round – securing a takedown and eventually cinching in a nasty heel hook that forced Barrett to tap.

    What a win for the youngster. 'The Dream' is well and truly alive.

    FIGUEIREDO VS CEJUDO?

    Figueiredo has been speaking about a potential fight with former flyweight and bantamweight champ Henry Cejudo.

    "It will be great to win again on Saturday, take the belt back to Brazil and relax with my family," the Brazilian said.

    "Those guys are only making me bigger and stronger.

    "Cejudo's a masked clown. I can't wait for him to step in front of me so I can knock that mask off his face.

    "I want to dominate my division, I want to make history. But I'm open to having a super fight at 135."
