Dan Hooker and Mark Eddiva fight Saturday at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Dan Hooker enters this fight with a 13-6 record and has won 38 percent of his fights by knockout. Hooker has split his last four fights and is coming off a October loss to Yair Rodríguez. Hooker is averaging 3.53 significant strikes per minute with an accuracy percentage of 38.3 percent. Hooker is averaging 0.35 takedowns with an accuracy percentage of 33.3 percent. Hooker is a lengthy fighter who likes to move forward and take advantage of a 75-inch reach. Hooker is also a tough and well conditioned fighter who can go the distance and has never been knocked out. The downside with Hooker is that he isn’t the best defensive fighter in the world and is prone to big strikes. This will be Hooker’s seventh fight in Australia.

Dan Hooker vs. Mark Eddiva UFC Pick, Preview, Odds, Prediction - 3/19/16

USA TODAY Sports

Mark Eddiva enters this fight with a 6-2 record and has won 50 percent of his fights by knockout. Eddiva has lost his last two fights and is coming off a May loss to Levan Makashvili. Eddiva is averaging 3.39 significant strikes per minute with an accuracy percentage of 45.6 percent. Eddiva is averaging 1.5 takedowns with an accuracy percentage of 25 percent. Eddiva is a solid striker with decent accuracy, and he’s an above-average defender with his takedowns. Eddiva is also defending nearly 55 percent of his strikes. The downside is that Eddiva has really struggled since stepping up in competition with his only respectable win coming over Jumabieke Tuerxun. This will be Eddiva’s first fight in Australia.

Neither of these fighters are great, but Hooker has the advantages with his toughness and the fact he’ll have the home crowd on his side. Eddiva hasn’t looked good recently, and it’s hard seeing him outwork the New Zealander in this fight.

I like Hooker to get the victory.
