Derrick Lewis looks to Mark Hunt down mark in UFC

Mark Hunt headlines the UFC Fight night in Auckland against derrick Lewis.

Round 4 was more of the same with Derrick Lewis up against the cage early on and Hunt walking him down.

The pattern of the fight was established very early on as the local man Hunt took the centre of the Octagon and pushed Lewis back towards the outer perimeter of the cage.

Literally nothing of effect happened in the first minute. "UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Hunt" will proceed with 11 bouts". Lewis hardly threw a punch halfway through the round.

Round three both fighters looked to be in great shape for heavyweights.

Swift allowed Apple to stream it after the music platform chose to pay artists royalties during its free three-month trial. So she pulled out all her albums and just went exclusive with Apple Music in 2015. "Valuable things should be paid for".

"It's a pretty good feeling", said Hunt, who hadn't won a fight since March 2016. Lewis humorously tried a flying knee which didn't connect.

I don't think Lewis has ever fought a striker of Hunt's caliber. He staggered Lewis several times in the fight, mostly with the right hand.

The round ends with Hunt on the attack, throwing some leg kicks.

Elliot's non-stop action based fighting style always delivers exciting results and especially so when up against a terrifying striker such as Nguyen. The American was caught by a pair of right hands midway through the round, but he battled on bravely despite looking uneasy on his feet. Lewis got cracked by one more left hook as the second round ended. He dug in a nice knee to the body on Hunt and then missed on two monstrous uppercuts. Lewis ducks a shot from Hunt and responds with some big swings, landing only a few. Lewis was wildly missing with lunging strikes. Like Hunt, Lewis packs a lot of power in his punches and he also can take a punch impressively. Lewis' takedown attempt was easily stuffed, and he had his hands on his hips. All signs were pointing in favor of the Super Samoan. But he exhausted midway through the third and Hunt mixed in body shots that further depleted him.

Sometimes, when Hunt came at him with punches, Derrick would return in kind, countering with punches of his own or going for a body lock. While he didn't go down, Marc Goddard stopped the fight, with Lewis not really protesting. The fight was an intense staring contest from both fighters until the last minute where it appeared Lewis was hurt.
