Derrick Lewis vs Mark Hunt on tap for UFC Fight Night 110 in New Zealand

Derrick Lewis vs. Mark Hunt targeted for New Zealand's UFC Fight Night 110 headliner

The UFC's Fight Night 110 main event from New Zealand could have just landed a massive heavyweight main event.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is close to getting signatures for a fan-friendly bangfest pitting fast-rising heavyweight power puncher Derrick Lewis opposite longtime veteran jaw-jacker Mark Hunt.

That's according to a report from MMA Junkie. Hunt is now under a medical suspension until April 19th due to his vicious knockout loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 209 last month, and will need medical clearance before signing a bout agreement. He turns 43 years old on Thursday.

Raiders sign QB EJ Manuel — NFL free agency
Current Raiders offensive co-ordinator Todd Downing was Manuel's position coach in 2014 and a big attraction in coming to Oakland. The 27-year-old, who just celebrated his birthday on Sunday, will serve as Derek Carr's backup with the Raiders.

Unlike his opponent, Lewis is now riding a wave of momentum that's saw him win six fights in a row in the UFC, with all but one having been finished with his fists. The Louisiana-born Texan is now on a six-fight win-streak, having recently defeated Viktor Pesta, Damian Grabowski, Gabriel Gonzaga, Roy Nelson, Shamil Abdurakhimov and most recently, Browne.

Hunt has gone 2-3 with one no contest over his past six fights but he will look to get back on track when facing Lewis on home soil when they face off in June.

No other bouts have been officially made for UFC Fight Night 110.
