Mark Hunt is still steaming mad.
And rightfully so, as he has been on a verbal tear since finding out Brock Lesnar was flagged by United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) a few days after he lost to “Beast Incarnate” at UFC 200.
Aside from ripping Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and threatening to start a fighter union, “Super Samoan” also lobbied to get a piece of Lesnar’s $2.5 million payday.
Of course, UFC spent millions in its partnership with USADA to ramp up its war against performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs), which has proven to be a success, evidenced by the countless positive results, including Jon Jones and the aforementioned Lesnar.
But if you ask Hunt, his employers could and should be doing more.
“I don’t want to be a part of this company unless they do something about this shit. They need to do something about this cheating. It’s like the whole roster is cheating. One person gets pinched and another person gets pinched, and they are not doing anything about it. People say this is the hurt business, I understand that, but if you’re going to make it the cheating sport, then let’s all fucking cheat. Let’s all cheat, stick needles in our assess and see who’s the first person to die. I mean this is ridiculous. It took years and years for something to be done about that scummy cheater Armstrong, how long is it going to take for something to happen on this sport? Until someone dies? Then let\’s lay some charges against these cheaters.”
As far as Brock — who Hunt labeled a “cheating monkey” — getting a slap on the wrist, that remains to be seen. But as Chad Mendes can attest to, a two-year ban from fighting is hardly a free pass.
But, USADA can improve in some aspects, like trying to get all the test results available before said fighter can actually step into the Octagon, not after the fact as was the case with Brock.
An area, I’m sure, Hunt would like to see improved, since he’s fought three guys in Lesnar, Frank Mir, and Antonio Silva, who have all been flagged.
And still, Hunt hasn’t received a phone call from anyone at UFC or USADA regarding the Lesnar situation, making him wonder if both organizations knew Brock was on something when they allowed him his much-criticized exemption.
If you ask the hard-hitting heavyweight, he would love nothing more than to see all offenders go to an actual criminal court to answer for their transgressions, lose all of their winnings, on top of facing a fine and a five-to-10-year ban.
As far as fines go, Lesnar won’t face one from UFC, as they will leave that up to Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) when Brock eventually has his day in front of the commissioners. And if Brock and the rest of the “cheaters” aren’t punished properly, Hunt is moving on to a different promotion:
“I want to be a part of a company that says we don’t want you cheating, or else every monkey will be able to. No, I got to work somewhere else. Like I said, if we have to sue their asses, well then fuck you, you’re getting sued. You scummy cunts. The problem is, guys are like I want to get into the UFC, well fuck the UFC, you are shit. You motherfuckers don’t look after nobody. You just go, ‘Here, fight this motherfucker here, stupid fucking……we’ll let this fucking white piece of shit stick a needle in his ass and let him cheat all the way to the bank. Let’s give him millions of dollars and not worry about this motherfucker. You know what? Fuck that and fuck your shit company. You can sue me on that, you motherfuckers.”
It’s safe to say that barring an unprecedented turn of events, Mark Hunt’s time in the eight-walled cage has likely come to an end.
