A Depressed Mark Hunt Releases Statement on Injury | UFC NEWS

“I am so gutted about this. I never pulled out of any fight, this is the first time ever in my whole career that I actually pulled out of a fight because of an injury. I’ve never been injured before. I put so much work into this fight, you know? I trained hard, it’s just so disappointing for me now. I was going to go and do the fight anyway, I was still trying to tell my mind not to do it. When a fighter goes into the Octagon, the ring, they go in one hundred percent. They go in bazookas, guns and everything. You don’t go in there to a fight with a butter knife. If you go in there you’re supposed to go a hundred percent. If one fighter goes in there fifty percent, he is giving the other fighter the other fifty percent. So the other fighter is coming in a hundred and fifty percent and you only got fifty percent. So, it doesn’t make sense to go in there. I don’t think Stefan Struve would have liked to beat me the way I am injured anyway. So, I might as well would have just said, ‘Here, take the fight, I don’t want it.’ It was disappointing to me, I wanted to do the fight, I still want to do the fight but my brain says it’s not good. You’ll have one kick on the leg and then it will just be a waste of time anyways. So be smart about it and come back a different day and fight. I’m more depressed than anybody. You know, I put so much time, despite of what I was talking about before, I never really trained (like this), I put so much hard work into this and a lot of people put some time into me. I wanted to gout there and prove that I’m a better fighter, but, the Lord has a plan for everyone and I’m just disappointed it happened. It’s just the way it is, it’s the first time pulling out of a fight with an injury. I could go in there and fight but you won’t see much of a fight. Your probably see me get a hurting for three rounds and that’s about it. I don’t think you want that.”

Riding a surge of momentum, fan favorite UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt was forced to pull out of his scheduled appearance against Stefan Struve at UFC 146.

The hard hitting heavyweight is now expressing his remorse for being forced to pull out with an injury to “The MMA Hour”.

    I have no sympathy! I respected this man, loved his style, his heart, his attitude etc, then I asked him a question one day on Twitter. Not really expecting a reply, but he did reply to me in all fairness, but it was the most arrogant and stuck up message I have ever had off anyone on there, he acted like a douche bag in reply to my message! I wrote to him as a fan! He asked for peoples questions I asked him and he gave me a b/s reply, filled with bad attitude! I was gutted!

    Mark Hunt has great spirit. To know he wishes he could fight a healthy fight is true warrior mindset.
