Fans of Hooker are no strangers to playing at home and believe the frenetic atmosphere the English will attack will increase the pressure on fellow featherweight prospect Allen.

During UFC London’s media day, he told SunSport: “Three times I’ve fought in my hometown.

“And there’s a certain balance to it. It’s an insane amount of pressure.

“A crazy pressure you can’t believe. After [Paul] Felder one, I said, ‘I’m not going out there [again]. ‘ It’s a lot more stressful.

“When you’re the villain, there’s no pressure. Everyone wants to see you lose. So you can go out there free, comfortable, sharp and be yourself.”

Although Hooker was expecting the nerve to come to Allen, he was fully aware of the potential benefits they would bring him.

“It brings out the best in you, all that pressure,” he said.

“Training is so much more focused, you do mental jumps a lot faster during that training camp. And with every last workout, you’re squeezing out every last drop, you can get out. it.

“But man, being at home, from experience, and there are 10,000 people that you know and have met all of those people. You have your friends and family there.

“You’ll never live like this if you catch a cold in front of all those people. Until the day you die, you’ll never live like that.

“You’re going to be 50 at the pub and someone is going to say it in the conversation. So it’s a lot of pressure.

“Things are going well for me, but I’m definitely glad I don’t have to sit where he’s sitting. So I’m looking forward to going out there and being free.

“I’m feeling the right amount of pressure here. I’m feeling very excited. He’s better than me.”

Victory for either would bring them to the brink of competition for the featherweight title, champion Alexander Volkanovski will defend against Chang Sung Jung next month.

“It’s hard to deny anyone walks out of a fight with their hands up holding something very large,” Hooker said.

The City’s Kickboxing runner-up later said, “The winner of this fight beats those guys, he’s right there in the mix.”
