Steve Garcia wasn’t playing any games on Saturday in Las Vegas as he ran over Chase Hooper for the biggest win of his career.

Garcia and Hooper met in a featherweight preliminary bout — one that saw Hooper close as a -320 favorite with the comeback on Garcia at +265, according to DraftKings. The Jackson-Wink standout came out and dropped Hooper several times in the opening minute, and at the 1:32 mark, the fight was over with Garcia picking up a big upset win.

Check out video of the fight and finish below.

It was near a must-win situation for Garcia as he entered the bout 1-2 over his previous three outings, including a 74 second KO loss to Maheshate at UFC 275 in June. “Mean Machine” dropped to 145 for the first time as a UFC competitor, and for the first time since competing for LFA in January 2020.

After an impressive showing in his most recent outing against Felipe Colares, Hooper is now 3-3 in his octagon run.
