Tsarukyan posted his fourth consecutive win on Saturday at UFC Vegas 37. Afterward, the momentum was clearly pushing the Armenian in the direction of a prime matchup on his horizon. There is one fighter in particular on the surging lightweight’s mind: Dan Hooker.
Arman Tsarukyan hopes to see Dan Hooker or Tony Ferguson in his UFC future
“He speaks a lot of bad words to me. I wanna kill this guy,” Tsarukyan said after the event about the New Zelander.
If not Hooker, Tsarukyan is hopeful he can get a booking with former division king Tony Ferguson.
“He is the oldest guy in the top-15. I am the youngest guy in the top-15,” Tsarukyan said.
The 24-year-old won via first-round knockout on Saturday. He stunned and finished veteran Christos Giagos at the 2:09 mark in the opening frame.
Islam Makhachev is the only loss on Tasrukyan’s 3-1 record inside the Octagon.
