Dan Hooker is on a different level.

Instead of flying home to be with his family, he is choosing to stay in Las Vegas and fight the supremely-tough Islam Makhachev in 30 days in Abu Dhabi.

And that’s not even the craziest part. The craziest part is due to New Zealand’s current travel laws he isn’t sure if he’ll be able to see his family again for the rest of the year as a result of this decision. True story.

This is one of the craziest things we have ever seen an MMA fighter — who happens to be a husband and father, too — do. How can you not respect this man?

Here are some thoughts on what he is doing.
