UFC Fight Night 110 takes place on Saturday, June 10 in Auckland, New Zealand.

In the main event of the evening, UFC heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Mark Hunt will throw down in what is expected to be a knockout of a fight.

MMA Junkie asked some of the pros for their pick to win in the main event and got a mix of answers.

Derrick Lewis

“Derrick Lewis just come out and do random stuff every time and find a way to get his hand raised,” said Derek Brunson, who fights Daniel Kelly in the co-main event of the evening. “It’s going to be an interesting fight. I mean the dude (Lewis) is riding high. Sometimes you just can’t, it’s kind of like the Max Holloway-Aldo fight. When a guy is just fighting good, he’s just fighting good, you know? I mean, guys hit their stride at certain times. So, I don’t know.”

On the other hand, Australian Daniel Kelly made his pick very decisive.

Mark Hunt celebration

“Oh, Mark Hunt of course. Of course,” Kelly said. “It’s awesome to be down here. I mean, this is his own hometown and it’s going to be an awesome matchup.”

Time Elliot, who fights Ben Nguyen in a flyweight matchup on the New Zealand card was on the fence with his pick.

“Actually, these are two of my favorite heavyweights to watch,” said Elliot. “I think it’s going to be a knockout and you know, I can’t pick a winner. I like both these guys. They’re both exciting, they’re both gonna go out there looking for the kill and I’m just super excited to watch it.”
