The fight world was rocked with two big drug testing busts earlier this month as it was revealed that both Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar had failed USADA drug tests.

Jones was pulled from his fight UFC Light heavyweight unification title match with Daniel Cormier, being replaced by Anderson Silva, while Lesnar still fought Mark Hunt at the event as his results apparently hadn't been revealed yet.

Hunt wasn't happy that his fight went ahead and today took his anger with the UFC to a new level, stating that he may never fight in the company again.

Speaking to the NZ Herald earlier today, Hunt revealed his taking his stand against the UFC incredibly seriously.

"It's an unsafe working environment," Hunt said. "They're doing nothing about cheating or performance-enhancing [drugs]. They're helping it, they're condoning drugs, is what I think. I think there should be some criminal [charges]. Every other sport has it sorted out. Every other sport frowns on cheats and drugs.

"It's a pattern here, and probably the next time - if I did fight - I could die," he added.

"I have nothing against fighting, obviously, I love what I do. If it's an even playing field then it makes it fair... the guy was caught doping and he gets my [heavyweight ranking] position of No 8 and he gets all the money, it's ridiculous."

That is when Hunt dropped the big bombshell.

"I would be walking away from a lot. If they don't sort something out... but you probably won't see me working for the UFC again."

 If this is the last we have seen of Hunt in the UFC then it is a great shame that he went out in a fight that won't even count in the record books because of Lesnar's cheating.
