Makhachev quickly landed a right hook and then immediately went for a takedown. Of course, he landed it. Hooker tried to scoot his way to the cage to post himself up, but Makhachev did well to control the hands and step into half guard. From there, the Russian grappler set up the kimura finish and twisted Hooker’s arm until he tapped.
