Hunt (13-11-1, 1 NC) rebounded from a third-round knockout loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 209 in March.

With the win, Hunt stopped Lewis' six-fight win streak and took a huge step toward challenging for the heavyweight title in the near future.

Hunt earned a fourth round finish in their heavyweight main event from New Zealand.

The injury seemed to bother Lewis all week leading up to the fight, which obviously played a role in his performance against Hunt. Hunt landed a nice overhand left before the bell, but Lewis ate it well and took to his stool seemingly ok. At the end of round 3 Derrick Lewis was visibly exhausted. I've had a lot of fun, traveled the world.

He added: "It wasn't about not wanting to advise on something that we thought should be heard". Cook uses Twitter to promote Apple products and address broader social and political themes.

There was more Kiwi success on the preliminary portion of the card, Hamilton's own Luke Jumeau repaid the faith of his legion of supporters with an impressive UFC debut, taking a well-earned unanimous decision win over American Dominque Steele.

"Anybody [ranked] above me", said Hunt, when asked whom he wants to fight next. "I lived here in New Zealand for 21 years and 22 years in Australia - it was a surreal feeling, better than drugs".

I don't think Lewis has ever fought a striker of Hunt's caliber. Hunt punched Lewis twice to the body, where he's been susceptible in the past. Hunt lands a shot that rocks Lewis and Hunt smells blood.

In a shock announcement afterwards, Lewis said this was "probably" his last fight and that he "couldn't put his family through it anymore", only time will tell as to whether this was a serious announcement. "He started getting exhausted and you know what happens at the top end if you get exhausted".

The loss also reminded me of the infamous Sam Querrey match at Wimbledon a year ago . "Especially in the last couple months". Djokovic split with Boris Becker towards the end of previous year as his number one ranking was about to disappear.

Hunt got his first win since beating Frank Mir over a year ago at UFC Fight Night 85, which capped a two-fight win streak at the time.

The 27-year-old moves up from featherweight to face former Ultimate Fighter victor Pearson, who has lost three on the bounce.

A surprise knockout at the hands of Robert Whittaker, who now finds himself fighting for the interim title, was followed by a controversial defeat to a 42-year-old Anderson Silva in a bout that many expected to act as his coming out party.
