The UFC has flown Mark Hunt into Las Vegas for more medical tests

Mark Hunt is hoping to prove he’s fit to fight following his removal from UFC Sydney over CTE concerns.

Mark Hunt and the UFC have not been on good terms lately following the Samoan fighter's removal from UFC Sydney. At the heart of that is the reason the UFC pulled him.

According to the UFC, they were concerned about brain trauma following an article attributed to Hunt where he admits to several symptoms of CTE including slurred speech. But as far as Mark is concerned, the move was revenge for his steroids lawsuit against the UFC and Brock Lesnar.

You'd think that would stop both parties from getting together to work things out, but in this case you'd be wrong. According to various media members, Hunt is currently in Las Vegas getting the testing done to settle the health concerns raised by his article.

Hunt even took the time to stream a sparring session at the UFC Performance Center.

Here's hoping all the tests come back to show Hunt is still healthy and capable of competing!
