Mark Hunt Crude Instagram Post News
The 43-year-old New Zealand-born Australian heavyweight mixed martial artist and former kick-boxer blasted UFC president Dana White in an expletive-filled Instagram photo after the company decided to remove him from the main event of Fight Night Sydney on Nov. 19, citing “medical concerns.” Hunt was scheduled to face Marcin Tybura that day.
Hunt also went after White and the UFC in a Facebook post, claiming the company forced him to withdraw after he attempted to sue it following losses to fighters who were later found guilty of doping. Among the fighters he is suing is Brock Lesnar, whom he faced at UFC 200 in July.
“I’m disappointed that I have been withdrawn from the fight, I have passed all medicals 2 days ago. And spent 100,000 on camp,” he wrote.
“The truth is the legal case I have filed has caused me to be withdrawn. The interview has been taken out of context and want to reassure all my fans, I slur my words only when I have a drink I’m fit and healthy, and would have understood if the UFC requested a medical to ensure my safety.
“However this is total bulls–t f— you Dana, you’ve always hated me you dog.”
In a recent Player’s Voice interview, Hunt revealed he has been slurring his words and struggling to recall things he did even just days prior.
