NFT: Mark Hunt Suing UFC, White, and Lesnar

UConn4523 : 1/11/2017 8:52 am
good for him. This situation is as crooked as it gets. Why was Lesnar granted a test exception with doping? Ohh yeah, the UFC had a shit card and needed to guarantee a huge payday in order to sell.

I'm not fully up to speed on everything but its about time someone stood up to them. I feel for Hunt, an apparently clean fighter who got absolutely cheated out on a fair fight.

When one man is effectively the last word...

it is utterly unsurprising that there would be abuses like this.
A question about this.....

Ok, they suspend Lesnar. Doesnt mean the fight is cancelled and he doesnt get paid? Or he fights a lesser fighter and gets less money?

He'd fight a lesser opponent and make less money most likely.
Fight happened last July

Lesnar earned $2M and change.
I dont know the full story

But why did Mark Hunt accept the fight if he knew Lesnar was exempt for testing
Hunt has been angry the whole time

I think he waited until the Fertittas sold the company out of respect before filing suit.

He's also in his early 40s, probably looking to pad his retirement on his way out the door, even though he's supposed to be part of the UFC 209 headliners.
