Mark Hunt and his attorney, Christina Denning spoke to 5 Rounds with Brett Okamoto about Hunts Lawsuit against the UFC, Dana White and Brock Lesnar.
“These guys need to be held accountable for their actions,” Mark Hunt said. “A year ban isn’t good enough, I mean, $250,000 isn’t enough for a guy that made over $2million on the night. Why should he get anything when he goes and breaks the rules. ”
“The penalties aren’t harsh enough,” he went on to say. “And me doing this Lawsuit is to let these guys, the UFC and all these guys know that it’s not alright, you can’t keep doing it.”
Mark Hunt has been very vocal with his views against fighters failing drugs tests after loosing to Brock Lesnar at UFC 200 in July and learning that he failed both his in competition and out of competition drugs test.
Mark Hunt is due to face Alistair Overeem at UFC 209, March 4th. Overeem has tested positive for a banned substance in the past, so Hunt attempted to add a clause to the contract to protect himself if his opponent, Alistair Overeem tested positive. With that failing, Hunt has taken further steps to ensure that he is protected for the future and compensated from his past bout against Brock Lesnar.
