You can run, but you can’t hide.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight contender Mark Hunt recently filed a lawsuit against both the promotion and its president, Dana White, after learning that Brock Lesnar — along with his two opponents prior to UFC 200 — were using performance-enhancing drugs.
But he’s not in it for the money.
Instead, the “Super Samoan” wants a “Mark Hunt Clause” in all UFC contracts, which takes the fight purse from any combatant guilty of juicing and awards it to his or her opponent, sort of like a weight-cutting fail.
Okay, so maybe it is about the money, but as Hunt told the gang at Submission Radio, his life is on the line every time he steps foot inside the Octagon, which is why his message for the haters was a succinct “fuck you.”
“Like I said, this shit is going all the way. These guys are gonna have to make this right, and not just with me, but with every fighter’s contract. I want the Mark Hunt clause put in their contract. I want every fighter’s contract to put in – if you are juicing, all their money should go to the other guy. If you’re both juicing, none of you guys should get money. People say, well why don’t you take 80 percent, blah blah blah? I say, okay, so me losing my life is 80 percent worth? No. They shouldn’t get anything. Cheaters don’t deserve any sort of money. He knew. These guys that cheat know that they’re gonna get into a fight three or four months down the track, so they premeditatedly know that they’re gonna fight, so they cheat. So it’s like someone trying to rob a bank. They’re planning it out, they premeditate, they go rob the bank and they get the money. It’s like what these juice heads are doing with fighting.”
Lesnar’s attorneys were not impressed.
While that plays out in court, Hunt will keep busy against fast-rising heavyweight power puncher Derrick Lewis when they collide at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 110 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, locked and loaded for Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand, on June 10, 2017.
