The event was the second that the promotion has hosted in Auckland, following UFC Fight Night: Te Huna vs. Marquardt in June 2014.[2]

A heavyweight bout between Derrick Lewis and the 2001 K-1 World Grand Prix winner and former interim title contender Mark Hunt served as the main event.[3]

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.[4] He was replaced by The Ultimate Fighter: Tournament of Champions flyweight winner and fellow former title challenger Tim Elliott.[5]

The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 middleweight winner Warlley Alves was expected to face Kiichi Kunimoto, but pulled out on May 18 due to an undisclosed injury and was replaced by Zak Ottow.[6]

Promotional newcomer Nadia Kassem was scheduled to face JJ Aldrich, but pulled out on May 31 and was replaced by fellow newcomer Chan-Mi Jeon.[7]

At the weigh-ins, Jeon came in at 118 lb, two pounds over the women's strawweight limit of 116 lb. As a result, she was fined 20% of the purse, which will go to Aldrich and the bout proceeded as scheduled at a catchweight.[8]

Just hours before the event, Thibault Gouti pulled out of a scheduled lightweight bout against Dong Hyun Kim due to illness, prompting Kim's removal as well.[9]
