UFC Fight Night 110: Lewis vs. Hunt is held on June 11 in Auckland

UFC returns to New Zealand since 2014. An upcoming UFC Fight Night 110 is held on Sunday June 11 at Vector Arena in Auckland.

The main event is a clash of the heavyweights with Mark Hunt facing off Derrick Lewis. To date the promotion announced nine bouts. The latest induction is a welterweight contest between local Luke Jumeau up against Dominique Steele of the USA.

The 29-year-old Luke “The Jedi” Jumeau (11-3-0) is the second New Zealand-based fighter featuring on the UFC Auckland card. The challenge against Steele is his debut in the UFC.

With the nickname “Non-Stop Action-Packed” Dom T, also¬†29, Dominique Steel (11-8-0) of the US continues his career in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
