Saying Mark Hunt is upset over the news of Brock Lesnar's failed drug test would be a huge understatement. On Friday, reports surfaced that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency notified Lesnar that a drug-testing sample taken on June 28 was flagged with what the UFC is referring to as "a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation." The 39-year-old fighter has since released a statement, promising that "we'll get to the bottom of this" as well as provide the Associated Press with three letters from the USADA indicating that he passed drug tests prior to his UFC 200 fight against Hunt.
As for Hunt, he's threatening to leave the company unless they give him half of Lesnar's rumored $2.5 million purse. "I said (to the UFC), ‘If you don’t give me half his s**t [purse], I’m walking away from this company, I want out of here. This is rubbish,'" he told FOX Sports Australia. “You [UFC] better do something. I already talked to the bosses. They better do something or I want out of here, I want a release from my contract. You guys are just making a mockery out of us, you’re making a fool out of me, you make me look like an idiot."
“I lost on that night to some f***ing cheat," Hunt said. "There’s no way he could weigh 265 [pounds] like me—he was about 500 kilos, there was no f***ing way he was weighing in at my weight."
The UFC 200 was supposed to be a monumental moment in the company's history, however, the event has only brought a black eye to the organization following Jon Jones's doping violation and now, the recent reports surrounding Lesnar.
