UFC Fight Night 110: Aussie Ben Nguyen stuns with victory

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

On Saturday, June 10 (in North America), the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 110: Lewis vs. Hunt from the Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand.

The attendance in Auckland was announce at 8,649 for a live gate of nearly $830,000 USA dollars.

Derrick Lewis vs. Mark HuntDerek Brunson vs. Daniel KellyDan Hooker vs. Ross PearsonIon Cutelaba vs. Henrique da SilvaTim Elliott vs. Before his loss to Hunt, in which he exhausted and took on too much damage, "Black Beast" had won six fights in a row and was garnering consideration for a potential title shot later this year, if not in 2018.

In a shock announcement afterwards, Lewis said this was "probably" his last fight and that he "couldn't put his family through it anymore", only time will tell as to whether this was a serious announcement. Hunt is in need of a win, as the feared slugger has gone winless in two straight fights, and is coming off a KO loss to Alistair Overeem. He staggered Lewis several times in the fight, mostly with the right hand. How will I beat Derrick Lewis?

Lewis opens things up with a front kick to the body. Hunt makes Lewis stumble by landing a two punch combination, Lewis responds by hitting Hunt with a jumping knee strike. Hunt starts attacking the midsection of Lewis with strikes, Lewis backs up Hunt with a punching combination.




"To walk (into the octagon) in my country of birth is pretty fantastic", Hunt said.

"I can finish anybody in the world". "If it ended for me tonight, so be it". His past five UFC wins, in fact, have all come via knockout in the opening round.

Derek Brunson, however, would be looking to steal the headlines with a strong rebound performance against Dan Kelly, after losing his previous fight in agonising fashion to former Champion, Anderson Silva.

But that could not take away from what was a dream day for the New Zealand MMA community, with Dan Hooker producing a stunning second-round knockout over Ross Pearson, while Luke Jumeau claimed a unanimous decision over Dominique Steele in his UFC debut. Pearson dipped down during a combination and Hooker drove the knee into his chin - and sent Pearson's mouthpiece flying.
