UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Hunt (also known as UFC Fight Night 110) was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship held on 11 June 2017 at the Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand.
Former UFC Flyweight Championship challenger Joseph Benavidez was expected to face Ben Nguyen at the event. However, Benavidez pulled out of the fight citing a knee injury on 10 May. He was replaced by The Ultimate Fighter: Tournament of Champions flyweight winner and fellow former title challenger Tim Elliott.
At the weigh-ins, Jeon came in at 118 lbs, two pounds over the women's strawweight limit of 116 lbs. As a result, she was fined 20% of the purse, which will go to Aldrich and the bout proceeded as scheduled at a catchweight.
