Earlier this month, news surfaced that former UFC heavyweight champ Fabricio Werdum had been handed a two-year suspension by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). This suspension stems from an out-of-competition urine test, in which Werdum tested positive for Trenbolone and its metabolite Epitrenbolone.
Not long after Fabricio Werdum’s suspension came to light, his former opponent Mark Hunt, one of MMA’s most vocal steroid critics, issued a scathing reaction.
“I’m glad that Fabricio Werdum got caught, that little b*tch,” Hunt told MMAJunkie ahead of his UFC Moscow submission loss to Alexey Oleynik, who was originally supposed to fight Werdum. “Go back to the favelas. F*ck you, you little c*nt. Good job. He was supposed to be here, but that’s what you get for being weak. That’s what you get, Fabricio, for being a weak-minded person. See you later.”
“They pulled me from the Sydney card, he took my place. That guy kneed me in the head in Mexico, I had to lose 21 kilograms in three and a half weeks to make that a title fight. I got kneed in the head by that little cheater. Then he beats Cain [Velasquez] in Mexico. That really upsets me about that guy. Then he wouldn’t fight me…he’s just a cheating little b*tch, man. He’s a little dog, that guy. See you later, Fabricio. Enjoy, motherf*cker.”
Since then, Fabricio Werdum has had plenty to say about Mark Hunt. So too has Werdum’s fellow Brazilian MMA legend Wanderlei Silva, who is gearing up for a fourth fight with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson under the Bellator banner.
Fabricio Werdum went after Hunt in his Instagram story, while Wanderlei Silva made a post just for Mark Hunt. See the pair’s anti-Hunt posts below.

Mark Hunt, of course, has had plenty of return fire for the two Brazilians. He hit Werdum with a particularly sizzling burn on Instagram. See a screen shot below.
