Bendan Schaub: If Brock Lesnar gets USADA exemption, Mark Hunt should be allowed to be juiced to the gills for UFC 200

Matt Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

Thanks to a special exemption from United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), Brock Lesnar was allowed to bypass the four-month window for all mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters choosing to come out of retirement.

This, after Lesnar decided he wanted to take part at UFC 200, which is set to go down on July 9, 2016 in Las Vegas Nevada in a Heavyweight showdown against Mark Hunt.

Details here.

The exemption was allowed because apparently, the deal with Brock and UFC went down not too long ago.

Of course, the move raised more than a few eyebrows from the mixed martial arts (MMA) community, including those of former UFC star Brendan Schaub, who was shocked to say the least when hearing the news. And during "The Fighter & The Kid" podcast, Schaub went off, saying that Hunt should now be allowed to be "juiced to the gills" when he faces Lesnar at UFC 200.

His words:

"He (Lesnar) could have gotten off of them, and tailored off. Now he can fight and be clean. So I'm retired and let's say they want me to fight; I have to give the drug testing sanction, body a four-month heads up like, 'Hey, I am thinking about fighting.' They will be like 'Okay, you have four months where we are going to test you and you got to be clean.' He skipped all of that and now he only has four weeks where they can test him. Does no one think this is fishy? Hey man, you can't do that! Mark Hunt should be able to take whatever he wants. Mark Hunt should come juiced to the gills and look like fucking Chong Li from Blood sport with traps from here to here. Fuck you!"

Schaub also suggested that Brock, as well as UFC, knew a while back that the former champ wanted to fight again, but figured out a way to beat the USADA system.

"So maybe six months ago he told Dana, 'Hey man I want to fight.' And Dana was like, 'Cool, well listen you know there is that four-month window.' And he'll say, 'Okay, let's see how we can work around this,' If this doesn't signal to every human being in the world that he's probably on stuff."

Hunt -- who also calls "bullshit" on the USADA exemption -- is determined to knock Lesnar out whether he's juiced or not.
