UFC Confirms Mark Hunt – Derrick Lewis Bout to Headline Auckland Event
By FCF Staff
The UFC has announced, as recently was reported, that Mark Hunt will face Derrick Lewis on June 11th. The heavyweight fight will headline UFC Fight Night 110, which will take place in Auckland, New Zealand.
Hunt (12-11-1) will be looking to get back on track, as the feared slugger is coming off a KO loss to Alistair Overeem earlier this month. The Kiwi legend has gone 2-2, with 1 no contest, in his last 5 bouts.
Lewis (18-4), meanwhile, is riding a six fight winning streak. Most recently, the American knocked out Travis Browne at UFC FN 105 in February.
Several other bouts have been confirmed for the upcoming card, as middleweight Daniel Kelly (12-1) will take on Derek Brunson (16-5), flyweight Joseph Benavidez (25-4) will battle Ben Nguyen (16-6), and John Moraga (16-6) will face flyweight newcomer, Ashkan Mokhtarian (13-1).
