Mark Hunt didn’t hold back yesterday when offered the opportunity to vent his frustrations on the Brock Lesnar’s UFC 200 PED bust situation, taking aim at both the former UFC heavyweight champion as well as the promotion.
Lesnar twice tested positive for a banned substance per the USADA drug policy and is waiting to go through his due process. ‘The Super Samoan’, however, isn’t shy about his feelings on the matter, even suggesting Lesnar cheated his way to UFC championship gold.
“That guy is a gimp; he’s sticking needles in his ass like the rest of these cheaters,” Hunt told The MMA Hour. “These guys are cheating and they should be in court for it. (They should) lose all of their money if they’re cheating, because if I die in there, who’s going to look after my family?
“These motherf**kers should be penalized hard. That’s how that monkey won his world title. He didn’t do it by doing it clean. He did it by cheating, just like the rest of these cheaters.”
Lesnar, like Jon Jones, will likely face a two-year ban, which is also the exact punishment USADA dished out to Chad Mendes last week. For Hunt, however, two years is not long enough.
“Make them banned for five or 10 years,” he pushed. “There goes your career. Five, 10 years, you have no career left and not only that, you lose all of your money. You’re done as a fighter. That’ll stop you from doing it. That’s what I want to see done. I won’t be a part of any company who says ‘we don’t mind you cheating or doing this or that,’ otherwise then every monkey will be (cheating).”
Last week, via his official website, Hunt called for a fighters association and put his name forward as the man to lead it. Yesterday, he reiterated the need for the fighters to band together in an effort to stamp out the cheaters from the sport.
“This is a time that a union needs to be formed,” Hunt adds. “All of these fighters need to get together, because we’re sending the wrong message. The message we’re sending out to all of these people who are watching this sport, aw man, you can get away with f**king anything.
“To make it in the UFC, you stick a needle in your ass, end up getting millions of dollars if you make it to the top. That’s easy. Better that, give you an exemption for four months, and not only that, they’ll give you your own press conference. That fool had his own press conference and made everyone wait for his own press conference. What a joke.”
“I’ll go and work somewhere else,” Hunt said. “I don’t give a s**t. If we’ve got to sue their asses, well then f**k you, you’re going to get sued. The problem is everyone these days, ‘Man, I want to get into the UFC.’ F**k the UFC! You’re s**t! You motherf**kers don’t look after nobody.
“If I walk away now, I don’t care. I walk away knowing that I haven’t cheated to get in this spot. I can keep my head up and say, you know, I might have to make a lot of different sacrifices to change the way things are, but so be it.
“I didn’t say anything when I beat the other two guys who I fought who were cheating, and probably the rest of the other cheaters that I fought. But at the end of the day, enough is enough.”
