UFC Fight Night 110 takes place in Auckland, New Zealand at the Vector Arena.

A fight between Derrick "The Black Beast" Lewis and Mark Hunt has been targeted as the main event for UFC Fight Night 110 on June 11th in New Zealand.

That's according to a report from MMA Junkie.

Hunt (12-11-1-1), who is coming off of a third-round TKO loss against Alistair Overeem at UFC 209 earlier this month, will have to wait until April 19 for medical clearance due to a leg injury he endured during the fight.

Lewis (18-4-0-1NC) will be entering the fight on a six fight winning streak, with those previous wins coming over Viktor Pesta, Damian Grabowski, Gabriel Gonzaga, Roy Nelson, Shamil Abdurakhimov and Travis Browne. "The Black Beast" is now 9-2 in the UFC ranks and his win streak includes victories over "Ultimate Fighter" Season 10 victor Roy Nelson as well as former UFC heavyweight title challenger Gabriel Gonzaga.

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.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship is starting to plot a purposeful card for the company's return to New Zealand.
