Mark Hunt slams the UFC in furious rant

Mark Hunt took a vicious beating at the hands of Brock Lesnar at UFC 200, losing a unanimous decision to the Beast Incarnate.

Just because Hunt lost doesn't mean that he is going to hide away from the public in response. There's going to be no laying low for the big New Zealander in the aftermath of UFC 200, that is for sure.

He proved that this week by taking aim at the UFC during a damning tirade, in which he said that all fighters need to come together to start a union.

According to Hunt, his loss to Lesnar - who failed two separate drug tests before and after the fight - is yet another reason as to why fighters in the MMA promotion need to band together to form an association. 

"The way I see it, the Brock Lesnar doping thing is just another reason why we need a fighter's association," Hunt said on MarkHunt.tv.

Making it Up

Hunt also cracked on the UFC's deal with Reebok and Dana White pulling Conor McGregor from UFC 200 because he didn't turn up to a press conference.

"These guys are just making up the rules as they go. First the Reebok thing, then Brock's four-month testing exemption. Conor [McGregor] gets pulled off a card for not going to a press conference that me or Brock didn't go to anyway. Work that out."

Hunt wasn't stopping there, railing on the UFC for how Brock Lesnar was allowed to fight him while he had PED's running through his system.

"They say they are cleaning up the sport, yet I've risked my health two times against guys cheating since this USADA thing started. I was told Brock was gonna be tested when I took the fight, he comes in looking fricken juicy as hell and then I find out he's popped after the PPV has already been sold. It's ridiculous."

"The fact that they haven't even bothered to make contact with me since all of this happened just proves they don't care."

"Lots of guys have talked about this, but someone needs to make this happen and I'm happy for it to be me."

Big words there from Hunt. In all honesty, UFC fighters do need to unionize. It has done wonders for sports stars across America in the NFL, NBA and NHL.
