Alves out, Ottow in against Kunimoto this June

With Warlley Alves forced to withdraw from his June 11 bout against Kiichi Kunimoto due to injury, Zak Ottow will make the trip to Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand to face the returning Japanese welterweight veteran.

In the UFC Fight Night main event, which airs on FS1, Mark Hunt battles Derrick Lewis in a clash of heavyweight knockout artists.

Winner of five of his last six bouts, Milwaukee's Ottow is 1-1 in the Octagon, with a win over Joshua Burkman and a split decision loss to Sergio Moraes. This June, he will attempt to get over the .500 mark in the UFC against four-fight UFC vet Kunimoto, who will be making his first start since February 2015.
