Derrick Lewis Rumored For Huge Step Up In Competition

Lewis (18-4, 1 NC) has been calling for a showdown against the "Super Samoan" over the past few months, which may not get him any traction in the official UFC rankings (see them here), but it will undoubtedly please the JUST BLEED crowd.

A heavyweight division collision will be headlining UFC Fight Night 110 as #6 Derrick Lewis will be clashing with #7 Mark Hunt. The UFC has not commented on either bout, both of which are in the early negotiation process.

Lewis actually asked for a fight with Hunt after his win over Browne, which marked his sixth victory in a row with five of those ending by knockout or TKO.

MMA Junkie is reporting that sources have informed the outlet that the UFC is hoping to book Lewis - Hunt for UFC Fight Night 110.

Prior to this win, Kelly earned decision over Chris Camozzi and Steve Montgomery while earning a crippling knockout over Antonio Carlos Junior. 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. Brunson is coming off of back-to-back losses, albeit in less-than-typical fashion.
