The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Auckland, New Zealand, this week for its first event in front of the Kiwi crowd since Mark Hunt knocked out Derrick Lewis in 2017.

A pivotal lightweight bout between Paul Felder and Dan Hooker tops the card, as the UFC on ESPN+ 26 main event.

Felder and Hooker are booth gunning for a shot at the winner of the UFC 249 bout between lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and challenger Tony Ferguson, so their bout in Auckland brings with it waves of importance.

A preliminary bout between Maki Pitolo and Takashi Sato was scratched on the day of weigh-ins when Pitolo fell ill. No detail was provided as to the nature of Pitolo’s illness.

With Pitolo vs. Sato cancelled, the UFC Auckland fight card was reduced to 12 bouts.
