Report: Derrick Lewis vs. Mark Hunt in the works

Heavyweight contender Derrick Lewis said he wanted to fight Mark Hunt next, and it looks like he’ll get his wish. MMAjunkie reported on Monday that Lewis vs. Hunt is being targeted to headline UFC Fight Night in Auckland, New Zealand on June 11th (June 10th in North America due to time zone differences). UFC officials haven’t formally announced the matchup, and with Hunt still on medical suspension, he can’t proceed until he’s given clearance to fight.

Lewis (18-4) is coming off a dramatic KO win over Travis Browne in last month UFC Halifax main event. He survived a difficult first round before rendering Browne unconscious midway through the second. It was the sixth straight victory for “The Black Beast,” with five of them coming by knockout. This would be the third straight appearance as a headliner, having also stopped Shamil Abdurakhimov at UFC Albany in December.

Hunt (12-11-1, 1 NC) was knocked out by the vicious knees of Alistair Overem at UFC 209 earlier this month. The 42-year-old has won just two of his last six fights, and his last four losses have all been by KO or TKO. His last main event bout was exactly one year ago, when he scored a walkoff KO win vs. former heavyweight champion Frank Mir at UFC Brisbane.

As of the March 15th update, the UFC rankings have Lewis listed at #6, while Hunt is #7 in the heavyweight top-15.

UFC Auckland will take place at the Vector Arena. The night’s main card will air live on Fox Sports 1.







Fuck me, they are not making life esay for Hunt.

:shock:

Jesus fucking Christ. How many fucking times do I have to say it . There should never be a heavyweight fight as the main event unless it's for the fucking belt.

Suck my fuckin dick

Damn. Can't root against Hunt but I'd hate to see him derail someone else I like who hasn't had a shot yet...

Should be a fun one either way though.

Wtf? This fight makes no sense at all....

Derrick Lewis is 6-0 and Mark Hunt is 2-4 currently....

This HAS to be because of Hunt's gay-ass lawsuit, there is no other explanation.

Watch them match him up with JDS again after this :lol:

Rankings/record wise your right. But, if u watch his last fight there was big negative feedback on how lewis fought in the first and if it was a more skilled guy he would of been finished. I had a feeling they would give him either hunt or struve next as they generally dont match up guys rising up against each other till its a number 1 contender or title ( think of the paths of jds,carwin, cain and they were kept far away from each other coming up), so ngannou is out for lewis.

They want to put him in deeper waters to see if he can swim, regardless of record if he fights against hunt like he did against browne hes getting ktfo. Its pretty much a general feeling lewis doesnt survive against the top 5. If he beats hunt it will likely give them more faith in lewis. If you look at who hunt had lost to, its not like hes losing to cans, there pretty much all in that top 5 who people feel will completely outclass lewis.

hunt will lose only against the top 5. This is a very good match up for lewis to see where he stands in the division. Hunt needs to take a long vacation if he cant torch this rude little cunt.

i just had an epiphany.


Derrick Lewis will try to throw hooks or maybe close the distance to try and get hunt down.


I give a slight strength advantage to Lewis. But I dont see him being able to take Hunt down.


I 'predict' a similar ending to the Roy Nelson fight. Hunt will 'catch' Lewis with a hook-uppercut and finish him.


Walk off ko.


I take sigbets - accountbets.



dont be ducking homo erectus.

Lewis is on a six fight win streak, Hunt is lost his last two and has a record of 12-11. The ONLY reason Lewis if fighting Hunt is because of the lawsuit Hunt has against the UFC. It's simply the UFC's way of trying to punish Hunt. Same reason why they had him fight Reem.

Oh poor hunt...he has to fight a sloppy brawler that only has success when he decides to spend a bunch of energy bursting out haymakers.

Black bitch admitted in his last fight that he isn't as good as the top heavyweights and wins due to his huge heart. That's not a confident fighter in the cage. His striking will be exposed by Hunt and he will be flattened. Black will have no choice but to go hard right away to keep Hunt off of him and will eat some hard countershots in the process...sending him to the canvas. Hunt is too experienced to lose to a sloppy fighter like black.
