Islam Makhachev responds to Dan Hooker’s IV accusations

Shortly after UFC 284, Dan Hooker accused Islam Makhachev of using an IV to rehydrate, which is strictly against the rules of the UFC. Makhachev and his team came out and immediately defended the accusations, saying Hooker was jealous and was making baseless claims.

Take a look at the tweet by Dan Hooker:

Following the serious accusations, the UFC lightweight champion voiced his opinion on Dan Hooker, saying:

“You must be held accountable for such accusations”

Both these comments together prompted the Dagestani fighter and his team to label Hooker as jealous and someone who wanted to bring down the champion’s image.
