UFC Fight Night 110, Auckland
UFC Fight Night 110, was to be a clash between two powerful heavyweights known for their incredible one shot power and KO ability. The Auckland fight card saw its fair share of KO’s during the night, and though both Lewis and Hunt saw the fight ending in a KO, the bout would last 4 rounds ending in referee stoppage as Mark Hunt began to take advantage of the tired and injured Derrick Lewis. Hunt would land several powerful shots to force Lewis’s back to the cage before ultimately putting an end to the fight. Before the fight there was some talk that this may be one of Hunts last fights, after all the Auckland native is 43 years old. In the post-fight interview Hunt was humble as usual, and mentioned that after a W, things would have to keep going. It was Derrick Lewis who surprised everyone, by announcing that this would probably be his last fight in the UFC. An interesting turn of events for the evening.
The Auckland card drew an attendance of 8,649, bringing in a gate of more than 1 Million New Zealand Dollars. The Fight of the Night Bonus went to the Main Event Hunt and Lewis, while the Performance of the Night Bonuses went to Ben Nguyen and Dan Hooker.
