Mark Hunt Comments on Lesnar Suspension


Mark Hunt (Brock Lesnar’s most recent UFC opponent) gave the following statement to MMAFighting.com after the news recently broke that Lesnar had been suspended from UFC for one year and fined $250,000 after failing a drug test around the time of his fight with Hunt:

“It’s not harsh enough considering he gets the same [punishment] as Jon Jones and Jones didn’t fight. Would that penalty have sufficed if I had died or been maimed?”Hunt previously said that he wants compensation for what happened and changes to be made. If the UFC doesn’t comply, he wants to be released from his contract. “Will they allow my clause or [will] we get into a lawsuit so the whole world can watch?”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
