UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs Hunt Results

The event saw a fighter lose his winning streak, and maybe retire!

Last night the UFC returned to New Zealand as Mark Hunt faced Derrick Lewis in the main event.

The event drew a crowd of 8,649 and made a live gate of $830,000 USD. The event went out live on Fox Sports 1 and BT Sports in the UK.

Lewis and Hunt fought four rounds of back and forth hard hitting action, with both guys getting in good exchanges, however, it was Hunt who prevailed in the end, TKO’ing Lewis late in the fourth round. Shortly after Lewis announced his intentions to retire from the sport.

Also to feature on the card was Sunderland’s Ross “The Real Deal” Pearson as he looked set to end a three-fight losing streak when he faced off against Aukland’s own Dan Hooker. Pearson’s goal of ending his losing streak was unsuccessful however after eating a huge knee in the second round which rendered him unconscious, declaring Hooker the victor.

In the Flyweight division Ben Nguyen took on Tim Elliott, Nguyen made short work of his opponent, submitting him in just 49 seconds. Also enjoying a quick victory was Ion Cutelaba as he knocked out Henrique da Silva in just 22 seconds.
