Mark Hunt went off on the UFC on Monday’s edition of “The MMA Hour.”
Hunt grew furious when talking about Brock Lesnar testing positive for banned substances after their fight at UFC 200. Hunt has good reason to be upset with Lesnar being his third UFC opponent that has tested positive for banned substances.
“I’ll go and work somewhere else,” Hunt said (transcribed by MMA Fighting). “Like I said, I don’t give a sh*t. If we’ve got to sue their asses, well then f*ck you, you’re going to get sued. You scummy c*nts. The problem is everyone these days, ‘man, I want to get into the UFC.’ F*ck the UFC. You’re sh*t. You motherf*ckers don’t look after nobody.
“We’ll let this f*cking white piece of sh*t f*cking stick needles in his ass and say, ‘oh, he’s going to take us all the way to the f*cking bank.’ Let’s give him f*cking millions of dollars and not worry about this motherf*cker. You know what? F*ck that and f*ck your sh*t company. Look at that for a contract. You can sue me on that, motherf*ckers.
“People are scared for years because the company is going to get them,” Hunt added. “Well, f*ck the company. They don’t give a sh*t about you or anyone else. If I walk away now, I don’t care. I walk away knowing that I haven’t cheated to get in this spot. I can keep my head [up] and say, you know, I might have to make a lot of different sacrifices to change the way things are, but so be it. That’s fine. At least I knew that I went to the top and all you find at the top are dirty f*cking scummy cheaters, and a company that’s going to help them do it.”
When Hunt was asked if he spoke to anyone from the UFC regarding any updates on the situation, he said during the live broadcast that he hasn’t gotten much information from anyone.
That changed after Hunt poured his feelings out to Ariel Helwani on the issue.
UFC Vice President of Athlete Health & Performance Jeff Novitzky apparently reached out to Hunt after his tirade, according to an official from the UFC that spoke with MMA Fighting. Novitzky had a “lengthy conversation” with Hunt and will keep him updated on the process of Lesnar’s violation. The UFC official also denied that the promotion had any knowledge of Lesnar’s positive test results prior to UFC 200 taking place.
