Fighting in front of his hometown crowd, Hunt (13-11-1) defeated Lewis via TKO at 3:51 of the fourth round Saturday. Lewis is the younger fighter with more to lose tonight, so I like him. The fight was set to open the early preliminary card on UFC Fight Pass, which happens before the FS1 main card.

Ion Cutelaba recorded the seventh fastest knockout in UFC light heavyweight history, while Brit Ross Pearson suffered his third loss in a row after he was knocked out cold by a vicious knee to the face by Dan Hooker.

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.

At the start of round two Derrick Lewis again led with a big headkick.

I predict a knockout win for Mark Hunt late in the fight. I don't think Lewis has ever fought a striker the calibre of Hunt, even at the age of 43, and that will be his downfall in this fight. What's more, at 32 years old in an aging division, he had a long, bright future ahead of him. Hunt connected on a left hook but Lewis took it like a champ.

"I can finish anybody in the world".

"This is a pretty good feeling", Hunt said.

Tim Elliot, on the other hand, would be eager to keep his momentum ticking over after an impressive victory against Louis Smolka in his last outing and you can always bank on an exciting fight from the ever-evolving Ross Pearson.

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. Perhaps this is a positive omen for the 27-year-old Kiwi.

"I've drilled that on the pads a million times, it just flowed naturally", Hooker said of the brutal knockout blow.

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.

It was a nice bounce-back performance for Brunson, who was coming of back-to-back defeats to Silva and Robert Whittaker. "It's an fantastic feeling to have everyone here in Auckland see me fight".
