Former UFC heavyweight title challenger Mark Hunt is not happy with his current employer the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the fighters on the promotions roster.
After suffering a decision loss to former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in the co-main event of UFC 200, it was revealed to “The Super Samoan” and the MMA world that Lesnar had tested positive for an estrogen-blocking substance in both his pre-fight and post-fight tests.
This was not the first time that one of Hunt’s opponents had been flagged for a failed drug test. In fact Hunt’s previous opponent Frank Mir, whom Mark defeated with a walk-off KO this past March, also tested positive after their fight.
Prior to Mir, another one of Hunt’s opponents Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva had failed his post-fight drug test for elevated testosterone levels, this after having a five-round war with the hard-hitting Samoan.
Hunt voiced his displeasure with his employer as a guest on “The MMA Hour” with Ariel Helwani weeks ago stating the following:
“These guys are cheating and they should be in court for it. [They should] lose all of their money if they’re cheating, because if I die in there, who’s going to look after my family.
“The best outcome is if the company that I work for says, ‘you’ve been cheating, you lose all of your [fight earnings], and since it was cheating, you get fined. You get sued and you get a fine. Make them banned for five or 10 years. There goes your career.”
Today Hunt called out his fellow fighters to “grow some balls” and help him speak out about what is currently wrong with the UFC:
What I don't accept is fighters telling me they scared to speak out About what is wrong with UFC What kind of fucken fighter are u u certainly are not like me everything about me is about fighting so many so called fighters stop fucken pretending and grow some balls chicken ass fighters say no to 💉💉💉💉💉💉👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾and corrupt companies FTA ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾
