MMA: UFC 209-Hunt vs Overeem Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Mark Hunt sure does seem to believe in the old maxim 'Go big or go home.' The UFC Heavyweight just spent a large portion of Wednesday under the needle of tattoo artist Chris Mata’afa in Sydney, Australia, getting a massive new chest piece done. And because what else are you going to do during a marathon tattoo session, Hunt also held a fan Q&A on his Facebook page while getting inked.

During the live video broadcast, Hunt confirmed that he'd be returning to the Octagon on June 10th to take on Derrick Lewis at UFC Fight Night 110 in Auckland, New Zealand.

"As you can see, I've still got a couple of injuries, my leg, my ribs are still broke from that steroid user," he said, referring to Alistair Overeem, who finished Hunt via KO at UFC 209 just a few weeks ago. "And he is a steroid user, he just hasn't been caught. I don't know how that guy hasn't been caught by the USADA people, he's like Brock Lesnar, another freaking cheater!"

The lingering injuries sustained in that fight won't stop Hunt from getting right back into the gym, though.

"So I'm off to camp on Sunday, I've got Derrick Lewis in New Zealand. It'll be a good fight, Derrick. I don't think he's cheating, he's got a similar background to me and he called me out. So it'll be a good scrap. It's four cheaters I've fought in a row and I've beaten two and I've lost to two. So it's half and half at the moment.

Perhaps he can use his lawsuit against the UFC and Brock Lesnar as the tiebreaker in his ongoing battle against steroid cheats?
