Mark Hunt gave his hometown plenty to cheer about with his TKO win over Derrick Lewis at UFC Fight Night 110.

The Super Samoan has been fighting professionally for more than 20 years, firstly as a kickboxer and now in MMA, but he had never had an MMA bout in his homeland.

The 43-year-old showed noted patience and timing against the dangerous Derrick Lewis (18-5, 1 NC) as he eventually broke him down to earn the win late in the fourth round.
