Mark Hunt is pissed. A few weeks removed from getting pounded by Brock Lesnar at UFC 200, the heavy-handed kiwi is still reeling from Brock’s two failed drug tests. As someone who has improbably fought into his forties against some of the toughest men in the world while presumably clean from performance enhancing drugs, Mark Hunt is having none of this. With each passing day, he seems to get more fired up about the whole situation, especially considering this is the third person he’s fought under the UFC banner who has failed a drug test (Bigfoot Silva, Frank Mir and Brock).
And so, Mark Hunt hopped on The MMA Hour, where he let Brock and the UFC have it.
“No one’s bothered to call me about anything about those cheating motherf*ckers. The UFC isn’t doing sh*t about it… There’s no compensation, nothing. You lose 20% when you don’t make weight, but when you get caught doping, when you get caught sticking needles in your f*cking ass, what do you get? Nothing! There’s no fine. You get a two-year ban.
If you get caught doping you should lose all your money and be sued in criminal court… I’m not complaining, I want something done about it. I reached out and they’re not doing a damn thing. This is the third time. I was assuming he was cheating. There’s no way he makes 265 pounds, he’s sticking needles in his ass. It’s not fair. These guys are cheating and should be in court. If I die in there, who’s taking care of my family? That’s how he won a world title. He did it by cheating!
I don’t want to be a part of this company unless they do something about this sh*t.”
Here are a few more choice snippets from Mark Hunt’s fiery rant that begins at the 3:21:00 mark.
—”F*ck the UFC, you are sh*t.”
—”Sooner or later a fighter is going to die and the guy is going to get caught doping.”
—”Brock Lesnar should be taken out to a field and hunted like a deer.”
—”Cheaters gotta die. Die in a fire.”
—”I have no idea why they gave him an exemption? Shouldn’t they be liable?”
—”Something needs to be done. Form a union. I’m not going to fight any more cheaters.”
—”I think they should have a Cheating MMA and Non-Cheating MMA.”
Now with the news that Brock Lesnar and Jon Jones won’t be fined for their failed drug tests, you have to wonder if now is the time for a sweeping change to the sport and how it handles its fighters. Could Mark Hunt turn from slobberknocking KO artist to union leader?
