The “Black Beast” versus the “Super Samoan.” It nearly sounds like a Godzilla movie. It features 2 monstrous heavyweights. They might not squash cities, but they can absolutely squash jaws. They square off at UFC Fight Night 110 in Auckland, New Zealand.
Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis has put together a remarkable 16 knockout surfaces. Half of these interruptions came inside the UFC’s Octagon, where Lewis has smashed the likes of Damian Grabowski, Gabriel Gonzaga, Shamil Abdurahimov and Travis Browne to smithereens. Tipping the scales quite near to the ceiling of the heavyweight department, the 32-year-old is calling for huge battles when he isn’t really verbally seducing Ronda Rousey.
Lewis is getting his dream, too. After dealing with Browne, he now draws Mark “Super Samoan” Hunt. The 43-year-old’s momentum has actually faded after a flying start to his UFC profession, however the embellished kickboxer does boast nine knockout wins, consisting of 6 under the UFC banner. He’s brought an early end to the night for, to name a few, Cheick Kongo, Stefan Struve, Roy Nelson, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and Frank Mir. Hunt hasn’t fared well against recent challengers Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem, but his walk-off knockouts are still a thing of legend that must give Lewis headaches as this fight methods.
The UFC’s journey to New Zealand’s Vector Arena comes complete with 6 main-card bouts, including such notables as middleweights Daniel Kelly and Derek Brunson, lightweight pillar Ross Pearson, previous flyweight title opposition Tim Elliott and featherweight prospect Alexander Volkanovski.
The action starts with two initial contests airing live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. The festivities move over to Fox Sports 1 for the remaining four prelim bouts at 8 p.m. ET and the primary card at 10 p.m. ET. Fight Press writers Dan Kuhl and Bryan Henderson sneak peek the occasion in this edition of Toe-to-Toe.
Heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Mark Hunt collide at night’s headliner. How excited should we be?
We need to be pretty excited to see these two beasts throw down. Hunt’s record might look a bit spotty over the last four years, but 2 of his battles were against men who got captured juicing and 2 were the current and last heavyweight champs. Coming off a difficult third-round knockout loss to Overeem, the quadragenarian is still 2-1-1 in his last 4 getaways, sitting at No. 7 in the department, and he’s prepared to make a big declaration versus the beastly enemy who is over 10 years more youthful.
The interesting aspect of Lewis is that most traditional fans most likely are unaware that he is even sitting at 9-2 in the UFC over the last three years, because, while he does have wins over some big-name challengers, when you pepper in men like Ruan Potts, Guto Inocente and Shamil Abdurakhimov, it is easy to forget a few of those in the fray. The truth of the matter is that Lewis is gradually creeping the ladder, and, while sitting in 6th place, a win over Hunt might quickly make the case for a move to the leading 5. With existing champ Stipe Miocic having actually currently taken out 3 of the top-five men, and Cain Velasquez always being such a huge enigma, the only guy standing in front of a title shot for Lewis– aside from Hunt, of course– would be Francis Ngannou. The method Lewis and Ngannou both manage themselves, we could even possibly see these two men fighting for the strap in the not-too-distant future.
So, the answer to the original question is a definite yes. Hunt remains in career-relevance mode, and it likewise helps that he is not happy with his employer. Lewis is within striking distance of a title shot. Plus, let’s not forget that both males are hard-smashing monsters who are always choosing the finish.
This is not one to be missed out on, and I have Lewis taking it by a nasty knockout.
If knockouts are your thing, then you ought to certainly be extremely delighted.
Hunt is a kickboxer who relies greatly on his power to finish battles in wowing style. However, a lot of his opponent have opted to key in on his weakness on the mat or use variety to avoid of difficulty on the feet. This won’t be the case when Hunt locks horns with Lewis. The “Black Beast” doesn’t have the tendency to use such a disciplined method.
Lewis is out for huge knockouts of his own. He’s completed 4 UFC opponents in the preliminary, and he’s tacked on another 4 finishes that have can be found in the later rounds. The substantial Texas-based fighter can get sloppy at times, but he’s done a better job of recuperating as he’s acquired Octagon experience.
Someone is absolutely getting knocked out in this headliner. Hunt’s chin can take a beating, however he’s likewise failed a number of times. There’s always the chance that Hunt ratings another among his walk-off knockouts, however I’ll side with my colleague and choose Lewis to obtain the task done.
