Mark Hunt as per his own statements has had to fight tainted fighters in his last two fights, namely Alistair Overeem and Brock Lesnar. He lost to Brock in a fight which was later turned into a NC because of Brock’s testing positive for banned substances. Subsequently Mark moved the courts against the UFC in a well publicised move but was forced to take a fight against Overeem due to contractual issues and lost the fight via KO.
Derrick Lewis on the other hand is on a six fight win streak having last beat Travis Browne at UFC Halifax on February 19th 2017. He has moved up to No.6 in the Heavy Weight rankings and seems like the guy to beat. And since he’s never been cited for banned substances Mark Hunt should be in a positive state of mind leading upto the fight especially since it’s in his home town of Auckland, New Zealand on June 10th 2017.
This will be the main event on the fight card.
A fight we are rearing to see.
