Mark Hunt

I've never hated Mark Hunt.

Hunt would later add, again via social media, that he believed the reason for him being pulled from the card was his current lawsuit against the UFC, stemming from Brock Lesnar's UFC 200 drug test failure. "I've still got my senses about me and I know what's right and wrong, which is the main thing", Hunt wrote in a piece for the Players Voice.

In a statement, the organisation said Hunt has been pulled due to medical concerns.

"Sometimes I don't sleep well".

The decision could have something to do with an article Hunt wrote for Playersvoice.com, in which he laid out his health problems, and discussed other hot topics such as doping and fighter pay. "I'll forget something I did yesterday but I can remember the s-- I did years and years ago".

The Daily Telegraph reported that UFC officials reviewed the article where Hunt spoke about the consequences he's paid in his long fighting career. You can hear me starting to stutter and slur my words. "The interview I did with Players Voice was misquoted".

Apparently, being called a bald-headed prick isn't enough to ruffle UFC President Dana White's feathers.

A league spokesperson said that the potential rule would be discussed by the owners during a meeting scheduled for next week. Pence later said that he " will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our flag, or our national anthem ".


"The health-related statements made by Hunt in the article represent the first time UFC was made aware of these claims", the official said. Stepping in to face Marcin Tybura at the event will be former champion (and Hunt nemesis) Fabricio Werdum.

Hunt's relationship with the UFC has been strained in recent times as a result of the failed out-of-competition drug test taken by his UFC 200 opponent Brock Lesnar, following his mauling at the hands of the WWE superstar past year.

"I'm disappointed that I have been withdrawn from the fight, I have passed all medicals 2 days ago".

Following his quick submission win over Gerald Harris at UFC 216, Fabricio Werdum has been picked to replace Hunt against Tybura in the UFC Fight Night 121 headliner on November 19.

"The Super Samoan" obviously feeling insulted by the fact that yet another one of his opponents was popped for steroids filed a lawsuit against the UFC and has been embroiled in legal battle with them ever since.

Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance in samples taken two weeks before the bout and on the night of the fight itself.
