Mark Hunt Batters Derrick Lewis For Fourth Round Stoppage

Mark Hunt Batters Derrick Lewis For Fourth Round Stoppage

Leg kicks, well-timed punches to the head and body, and superior cardio were all the big factors in the 43-year-old prevailing and ending Lewis' six-fight winning streak.

UFC Color Commentator Brian Stann then interviewed Lewis shortly after the fight where he revealed that he injured his lower back as the fight went on, hence the weird stances towards to end. 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. "I know Derrick Lewis is from the hood, but this is my hood".

Hunt continued the body shot and leg kick attack in round 4.

For Hunt, it is the 10th knockout win of his career.

Hunt (13-11-1, 1 NC) rebounded from a third-round knockout loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 209 in March. Hunt comes in hard and lands a nice shot but Lewis shakes it off.

Introductions were made and the hometown hero Mark Hunt was given a standing ovation.




"Anybody [ranked] above me", said Hunt, when asked whom he wants to fight next. It was the 32-year-old's fourth loss in a row, forcing fans to question his future in the Octagon after another disappointing flop.

"I don't like listening to anyone saying you can't do this otherwise I wouldn't be one of the best fighters in the world".

Stepping up after six fights at featherweight, the "Hangman" bounced back from last year's defeat to Jason Knight in emphatic style, knocking Pearson out cold with a vicious knee 3mins 2secs into the second round. The fight only lasted 49 seconds. "If it ended for me tonight, so be it".

Auckland native Daniel Hooker (14-7) demolished Ross Pearson with a ideal counter right knee at 3:02 of the second round of their lightweight bout.

Derek Brunson, however, would be looking to steal the headlines with a strong rebound performance against Dan Kelly, after losing his previous fight in agonising fashion to former Champion, Anderson Silva. Hooker's knee met Pearson's ducking jaw, sending the Brit crashing to the canvas, relieved of his senses.
