Mark Hunt still fighting on Sept. 20, blames hunger pangs for cryptic unemployment tweet

Hey Mark, eat a Snickers. You're not you when you're hungry.

Well, that's a relief.

Not just for mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, but for Roy Nelson, as well. "Big Country" was likely baffled at the recent social media post from opponent Mark Hunt, who claimed he was suddenly unemployed, despite top billing for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 52 Fight Pass event inside the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on Sept. 20, 2014.

Turns out he still has a job.

So what was all that talk about being out of work? Apparently the "Super Samoan" was super hungry, and let his carbohydrate deficit get the best of him.

In his defense, you can't get a decent bagel "Down Under."

Brow wiped.

Hunt (9-8-1) recently fought to a bloody draw against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva at UFC Fight Night 33 last December in Australia. Prior to that, the 40-year-old kickboxing champion had his four-fight win streak snapped by Junior dos Santos at UFC 160.
