UFC Fight Night 110 Bonuses: Heavyweight Slugfest Earns 'Fight Of The Night'

The UFC said in a statement: "On the advice of physicians, and with the athlete's health and safety in mind, UFC has removed Thibault Gouti from his bout today against Dong Hyun Kim at "UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Hunt" in Auckland, New Zealand due to illness".

43-year-old New Zealander Mark Hunt will have nearly the entire arena in his corner when he enters the octagon in his home country for the first time.

Mark Hunt didn't add to his impressive highlight reel at UFC Fight Night 110, but he managed to score one of the most joyous wins of his career.

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

Hunt and Lewis both found success with punches but the Super Samoan's biggest victories came in his leg kicks. Both men found homes for their heavy hands, with Lewis landing his devastating uppercuts and Hunt working his counters and lunging crosses, but Hunt's effective pressure likely put him ahead on the scorecards for much of the fight.

Lewis clipped Hunt with an overhand right to start round 2, then a jumping switch knee. At the end of round 3 Derrick Lewis was visibly exhausted.


Ultimate Fighter victor and former title contender Tim Elliot steps in to face Ben Nguyen on short notice but still remains a heavy favourite. Some nice shots to the body had Lewis in even more trouble as fatigue began to set in. He rebounded from a knockout loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 209 in March.

Lewis said he re-injured his lower back recently and that affected his performance in the fight. "If it ended for me tonight, so be it".

"I can finish anybody in the world".

In the co-main event, a middleweight contest between Derek Brunson and Daniel Kelly barely made it out the first minute.

After losing the opening round, the 29-year-old Kiwi came from behind to win 29-28 on all three judges scorecards.

After consecutive losses to Australian-based, New Zealand-born title contender Robert Whittaker and Anderson Silva, that was exactly the result the American needed, improving his record to 22-5. Pearson's punch landed, but he caught the worse of the exchange, as Hooker's knee landed flush under his chin, knocking out his mouthpiece.
