Mark Hunt Says He Was ‘Cheated Again’ by Fighter Pay

July 9, 2013 10:59 am by bjpenndotcom

Mark Hunt may not seem like the most outspoken man to ever step in to the Octagon, but after a recent look at a Career Earnings Manifesto for UFC fighters, Hunt found something to say.

Hunt let his opinion known via his official Facebook page:

“well i don’t now bout where they got there figures from but it must be true lol”

Hunt went on to question the choice to become a UFC fighter for anyone interested:

this is really crap man i need a pay rise (sic) how can some of these other gooons (sic) get more than me hahahahai been cheated again,why anyone would want to be a ufc fighter if this is how much we get paid.

Hunt had been marked down for $537,000 which is the total for his base salary and does not include Fight Night bonuses or discretionary bonuses. Either way, Hunt says that this isn’t even close to resembling what he has actually made.

Hunt previously fought former heavyweight champion, Junior dos Santos at UFC 160, losing via 3rd round knockout after catching a wheel kick to the head. He now sits out with a well-documented staph infection.
