Time is definitely not healing Mark Hunt’s wounds.
In early July he lost to Brock Lesnar via unanimous decision at UFC 200, only to later find out that Lesnar failed not only an out-of-competition drug test administered by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), but also an in-competition drug test administered by the same agency.
When Hunt found out about the first failed test he demanded the UFC pay him Lesnar’s disclosed pay of $2.5 million or his release from the UFC.
After he heard of the second failed test his demands didn’t change, and he vented about the failure on social media.
On Monday, Hunt basically went all in against his employer, the UFC.
“No one’s bothered to call me about anything about those cheating motherf**kers,” Hunt said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “You know what’s the worst thing about the whole scenario? The UFC’s not doing a damn thing about these cheating monkeys. This is the third time I’ve fought someone’s who’s been cheating. You lose 20 percent when you miss weight. But when you get caught for doping, for sticking needles in your ass, what do you get? You get nothing. They just give you, ‘Here’s a two-year ban. See you later.'”
As Hunt pointed out, two of his previous opponents, Frank Mir and Antonio Silva, have also failed drug tests. With that in mind, his anger is understandable.
"I'll go and work somewhere else," Hunt added. "Like I said, I don't give a sh*t. If we've got to sue their asses, well then f**k you, you're going to get sued. You scummy c**ts. The problem is everyone these days, ‘Man, I want to get into the UFC.' F**k the UFC. You're sh*t. You motherf**kers don't look after nobody.”
MMAFighting reported that after Hunt went off on the promotion, Jeff Novitzky, UFC vice president of athlete health and performance, spoke to the fighter at length.
