Chase Hooper set for octagon return, faces Peter Barrett at UFC 256

Chase Hooper will look to rebound from his first pro loss when he returns on Dec. 12.

Hooper (9-1-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) faces Peter Barrett (11-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC 256, which takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

MMA Junkie confirmed the booking with a person close to the situation following an initial report from MMA Fighting. The person requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make an announcement.

After earning a developmental deal on “Dana White’s Contender Series,” Hooper picked up three straight stoppage wins, including a first-round TKO of Daniel Teymur in his UFC debut last December. The 21-year-old prospect was then bounced out of the ranks of the unbeaten when he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Alex Caceres at UFC 250 in June.

Barrett, who’s also a Contender Series alum, earned a UFC contract in August 2019 when he defeated Sang Hoon Yoo by unanimous decision. He saw his two-fight winning streak snapped at the hands of Youssef Zalal in his promotional debut at UFC on ESPN+ 32.

With the addition, the UFC 256 lineup includes:

  • Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson – for UFC women’s featherweight title
  • .Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling – for UFC bantamweight title
  • Mackenzie Dern vs. Virna Jandiroba
  • Ronaldo Souza vs. Marvin Vettori
  • Dwight Grant vs. Li Jingliang
  • Angela Hill vs. Tecia Torres
  • Peter Barrett vs. Chase Hooper
