Paul Felder thinks the “Felder Curse” is “blown out of proportion”


Paul Felder was propelled into a single screenplay before the UFC in June at the ESPN 12 main event between Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker.Before the fight, it was noted by Twitter user @UFC_Sasuke that everyone who beat Felder (17-5 MMA, 9-5 UFC) in MMA competition lost their next fight. Hooker, of course, had just won a unanimous decision against “The Irish Dragon” in February, which prepared him for the clash with Poirier.

Poirier then defeated Hooker by unanimous decision in a “Fight of the Year” contestant, and the curse continued.

“It’s crazy my brother,” Felder told MMA Junkie. “You can’t make it up (explanatory) sometimes. I saw this guy. I can’t think of its Twitter handle now. A random Twitter handle. It’s not a huge profile, but he then published this statistic and I retweeted it, then Ariel Helwani grabbed it, then they asked (Hooker) about it, then ESPN published about it. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I didn’t expect this thing to explode.’ ”

Felder said that he did not quite understand why this particular information was so successful, but he did not accept in the story that he was some kind of pervert.

The fact remains that the five men to beat Felder – Hooker, Mike Perry, Francisco Trinaldo, Ross Pearson and Edson Barboza – could not win the fight after facing him. He just hopes that it does not become such an important point that it will infiltrate his reality.

“It’s just a coincidence,” said Felder. “It has nothing to do with me. It was just a completely random thing. It has become completely out of proportion. Hopefully it doesn’t turn on me and now the guys say, “I’m not beating you and I’m losing my next fight. It could be a big fight for them. ”
