Mark Hunt angry after UFC pulls him from fight for medical reasons

Mark Hunt has accused Dana White of a hidden agenda after the heavyweight was pulled from the UFC Sydney fight card. You can hear me starting to stutter and slur my words.

"This is what I'm supposed to be doing and if I die fighting, that's fine", Hunt told Players Voice.

'[I] forget something I did yesterday but I can remember the sh*t I did years and years ago, ' he wrote.

'My memory is not that good anymore'.

He said: 'I'm disappointed that I have been withdrawn from the fight, I have passed all medicals 2 days ago. Werdum will meet Marcin Tybura in the main event on November 19 with the event taking place at the Qudos Arena in Sydney. The 43 year-old feared slugger has gone 3-1, with 1 no contest, in his last five bouts (the no-contest was Hunt's aforementioned bout with Lesnar). And spent 100,000 on camp.

Porsche's latest is an all-electric Cayman that can charge almost three-times faster than a Tesla Supercharger. And with the Turbo Charging name, Porsche can still put that lovely Turbo script on the back of cars.

While the UFC has not made any further statement on the matter, it appears concerns were raised after a recent statement made by Hunt to the Player's Voice where he discussed the long term health effects that fight has had on his mind and body. The truth is the legal case I have filed has caused me to be withdrawn. It's also unclear why the UFC would pull Hunt from the card for any reason other than fighter safety, given they'd already booked and promoted the bout.

"Athlete health and safety is of the utmost importance to the organisation and it would never knowingly schedule an athlete complaining of health issues for a fight".

Hunt has been at extreme odds with the UFC ever since the loss to Lesnar, whom he claims was given special treatment and unfairly allowed to fight in the Octagon after receiving a waiver to avoid the usual six-month USADA testing return in order to compete in the UFC.

The veteran fighter then took to social media to vent his frustration at the UFC chief teling him to "kiss my a** you bald-headed p**ck" and called him a "c**ksucker".

Now, it's important to note here that Hunt has launched a civil suit against the UFC and Brock Lesnar, as a result of the latter's USADA flag, following their 2016 bout. It's a very fast turnaround for Werdum, who submitted Walt Harris last weekend at UFC 216 in Las Vegas.
