While most of the card may be flying a little bit under the radar there are more than a few gems to be found from top to bottom. Of course, while that may be the case, the big highlight for many fans comes in the form of the mouth-watering lightweight main event between Paul Felder and Dan Hooker.

From top to bottom, let’s run down all of the fights currently on the card for the event at Spark Arena this Saturday night.

A variety of notable stars will be fighting on the UFC Auckland card this weekend with the hope that they can vault themselves one step closer towards a potential title shot. In regards to the main event, though, it’ll likely take a big finish from either of the two men for them to be taken seriously in what is still considered to be the most stacked division in the entire UFC.

It’s a card that will be seen as one that’ll just come and go due to the fact Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder also goes down this weekend when in reality, it’s a card you shouldn’t miss.
