The Hangman vs Raging Al

I know this fight is technically 3 events away, and the anticipation for Whittaker stylebender is well warranted, but this is definitely a fight I'm getting excited for more so than usual. Two guys that don't know how to quit.

Iaquinta getting his face completely busted open in the first and coming back against Masvidal (mas might have won that, I know). Went the distance with Khabib. And Hooker's performance against barboza was nuts. Dude went until his body quit on him.

Hooker has the length and quality striking but this could be a crazy fight.

Hooker will win more easily than Cowboy did and Masvidal absolutely beat Al. 

I was surprised how easily cowboy beat Al. I actually thought it was going to be a more contested fight, closer to a coin flip. I admittedly might put too much stock in Al, but for some reason think he has a chance against hooker. Hooker has wins against good opponents, ko's and submissions, and has the better fighting frame I believe. But for some reason I think it's going to be a good fight.
