The New Zealand fighter continued to thrash-talk Makhachev and his team. Hooker added, “You know the funny part about it? Watch Ali and other guys say, “Liar. Make him shut up”.

Hooker also had some words for the commissions in the interview. He added, “How to prove someone takes IV is incredibly hard to prove. You know then USADA just kicked it off to the commissions… What commissioner out here is clearing IVs? Specially not Australian commission. No where in hell an Australian commission is okaying IV. “

Thus, a lot of talks have been going on about IVs. However, there is no proof of Makhachev having used it.
