Brock Lesnar was always going to have his doubters when he announced his return to the UFC, and as expected, those involved in the sport have had their say after it was revealed the USADA had notified Lesnar of a potential anti-doping violation.
Understandably, Mark Hunt is angered the most following this news, considering he walked out the loser of this match, and he has demanded one of two things from the company.
SHOW ME THE MONEY
According to MMAFighting.com, ‘Super Samoan’ has asked UFC officials to either award him half of Lesnar’s purse or else he’d like to be released from his contract immediately, revealing that they have yet to respond to his request.

He said: “The cheaters get a slap on the wrist and walk off. What penalty or deterrent is there to make them think twice? Nothing.
“And the [Nevada Athletic Commission], why should these [expletive] get anything? They are not the ones who had to fight with Lesnar or lose. I lost.
“I’m not surprised. I think he should be made an example of like every other cheater.”
"JUICED TO THE GILLS"
If found guilty, Lesnar would be the third opponent Hunt has fought in less than three years that has been caught using a performance-enhancing drug following a five-round draw with Antonio Silva, and the well-documented, first-round knockout of Frank Mir.
Lesnar is said to be guaranteed $2.5 million for the event. However, he‘s expected to earn a lot more following the number of pay-per-view buys with $8 million being an approximate figure.
After claiming Lesnar was “juiced to the gills”, Hunt will want this situation to be cleared up as quickly as possible to see whether Lesnar did violate the regulations.
