UFC Star Brutally Mocks Max Rohskopf For Quitting On Stool, Deletes Tweet After Fan Backlash

UFC Star Brutally Mocks Max Rohskopf For Quitting On Stool, Deletes Tweet After Fan Backlash

Lightweight contender Dan Hooker mocked Max Rohskopf for quitting on the stool during his UFC debut then deleted his tweet after receiving backlash online.

Rohskopf had to call for a UFC official to stop his fight with Austin Hubbard because coach Robert Drysdale refused to end the fight.

In between the second and third rounds, the 25-year-old told his corner that he could no longer continue.

The lightweight clash was eventually halted with his team subject to criticism by the MMA community.

However, Hooker, who faces Dustin Poirier on Saturday, was far less sympathetic as he took to social media to slam the young fighter.

On Twitter, he wrote: "How do you get into the UFC without realising you're made of marshmallows?"

One Twitter user wrote: "I'm a Kiwi, and a former Dan Hooker supporter. I hope Poirier knocks some humbleness back into you. This is poor taste, bro."

A second tweeted: "Dan Hooker's habit of ripping on fighters immediately after a loss is exactly why I'm rooting for Poirier."

A third added: "I don't get Dan Hooker. He makes fun of fighters after losses and calls them marshmallows, but he also got mad at Felder because of a meme and blocks anyone that makes fun of him."

Speaking at the post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White defended Rohskopf's decision while hitting back at anyone who criticised the stoppage.

"Let me tell you what, in this f**king sport, if you're done, you're done," he explained.

"You should absolutely be able to quit. I know that it's frowned upon but guess what? Anybody that would talk sh*t about you quitting, isn't in there fighting. It's real easy to be a critic. What these kids do is a whole other level.

"As the guy who runs this organization, as the guy who's involved in the matchmaking and everything else, you see these kids, we deal with managers from all over the world, they're like 'this guy's the guy, this guy's the guy!'

"When you get here, this is a whole different level and that guy's not ready and he might not ever be ready."
