Mark Hunt is never afraid to speak out against his employer and you can bet that he is willing to go to war for his fellow fighters too.
This week, the UFC decided to move the UFC 232 event later that year from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to The Forum in Inglewood, California, after the Nevada State Athletics Commission refused to grant a temporary license to light heavyweight challenger Jon Jones because of an abnormality drug testing that the United States Anti-Doping Agency concluded from the amount of prohibited substance residues previously sanctioned by Jones. Jones received a one-year suspension for failing a drug test in 2016 and a 15-month suspension for the failure of the second drug test in 2017. He is expected to appear before NSAC in January to further discuss his licensing.
The California State Athletics Commission tested Jones over the weekend and CSAC executive officer Andy Foster told MMA Fighting that Jones was a "clean athlete", who moved the wheels for changing venues.
All that information was not very convincing for "Super Samoan", who went down to Instagram on Monday to tear up the UFC and company president Dana White for their decisions which affected not only headliners Jones and Alexander Gustafsson, but all fighters on cards and countless fans the amount.
See the full statement below (edited for clarity):
UFC cheats, Ultimate F * ckin '. Why don't you cut Jones, pay Gustafsson, and leave the show in Vegas. All fans and families who have paid do not miss. Oh, you only care about pay per view. Merry Christmas to everyone who has paid to go there.
I hope no one buys your motherf * PPV. The least you can do is pay for everyone's flights to California and accommodations. Tickets, food, and everything you've dated from there.
Oh, and you can stick my crooked finger in your tramp for Christmas, you little bastard Dana White.
This is the latest in a series of public criticisms that Hunt has for the UFC. He had spoken intently about the official who issued him from the main event last year due to potential health problems, opponents of UFC 200 Brock Lesnar could potentially win the heavyweight title, and his concerns about his MMA career in general. Hunt is currently involved in a lawsuit against UFC, White and Lesnar related to the circumstances surrounding UFC 200.
