Mark Hunt Calls Out Dana White And The Fertitta Brothers To A Fight

Mark Hunt has challenged UFC president Dana White and the Fertitta brothers to a fight after being ordered to pay $388,235 in attorney fees to his former employers.

The New Zealander's lengthy legal battle with the UFC is pretty well documented, most of it centring around Hunt's bout against Brock Lesnar at UFC 200 which was later declared a no-contest by the Nevada Athletic Commission after Lesnar tested positive for steroids - something Hunt claims the UFC was well aware of.

Hunt then filed a huge lawsuit against the UFC and Zuffa, accusing the MMA giants of racketeering, fraud, false pretences, breach of contract, breach of covenant of good faith and fair dealing, negligence and unjust enrichment.

Now, over four years on, it's understood the United States District Court in Nevada has ordered the former UFC, K-1 and PRIDE heavyweight to cough up almost $400k in costs - something Hunt isn't best pleased about.

"Mark 'The Super Samoan' vs Dana 'the parasite' White, Lorenzo Fertitta and Frank Fertitta," Hunt said in an Instagram post.

"5 rounds [of] MMA. These losers @danawhite Frank Fertitta [and] Lorenzo Fertitta has sucked the life out of so many fighters him and his scum friends.

"You win, I drop the law suit. I win, you pay every fighter you have ripped off since @ufc started. Now who would pay to see that?"

When MMA website broke the news that Hunt owed the UFC legal fees and the like, the Kiwi fan favourite initially denied that it was true.

He posted: "Really Christopher Taylor? 2022 the start of a new year and you saying I got to pay this? Cmon bro, where did you get this info from? Did you just make it up or waaaaaaa?"

After calling out White and Co, Hunt then decided that he would be taking a break from social media.

"I'm getting off social media," the 47-year-old said.

"I shouldn't be attacking people for their views on things just because they don't see it my way.

"Has not been a good start to 2022."

Hoping Hunt is doing alright.
