Fan favorite UFC heavyweight Mark ‘Super Samoan’ Hunt has signed a new 6-fight UFC contract.

According to the 42 year old MMA veteran, the deal is worth millions, however according to Hunt it isn’t about the money. Hunt has bigger plans in mind.

He spoke to Stuff.co.nz:

“It’s not about the money. Of course I had to get paid for my work but I want that title. Dana gave me a message and we talked about it. There were some back and forth negotiations. I think I still deserve a title shot and in the end I thought six fights should do it. I’m glad to finish my career at the top end with the UFC. I want to bring the gold down under.”

Following his recent win over Frank Mir, it was announced that Mir had tested positive for banned substances, something that had led Hunt to want to target fighters using steroids.

“I want a rematch with all these guys who are cheating,” he said. “Their use of steroids is starting to irritate me. I want it to be an even playing field.
