Mark Hunt Unleashes In Instagram Rant After Losing Lawsuit Against UFC

Mark Hunt has unleashed an astonishing rant on the UFC and Dana White after his lawsuit against them was thrown out.

Hunt took to Instagram and lambasted the UFC for being a 'cheating company' and called out president Dana White.


Hunt sued UFC and White in January 2017 after demanding he receive Brock Lesnar's $2.5 million purse from their fight at UFC 200 in 2016.

Lesnar tested positive for banned substance clomiphene in a pre-fight drug test prior to his win over Hunt.

The result of the bout was changed to a no contest after the drug test failure came to light.

Hunt, who was still under UFC contract when filing the case, claimed UFC conspired with Lesnar to avoid having to pull him from the pay-per-view.

It was Lesnar's first fight in the UFC since 2011 after retiring and returning to the WWE.

Their fight co-main evented the show which was bogged in controversy after multiple stars such as Conor McGregor and Jon Jones missing the show.

Most of the case had been dismissed earlier this year but the New Zealand fighter was still waiting for a verdict on his case against good faith and fair dealing.

Since being beaten by Lesnar, he lost four out of his five following fights.

He left the UFC in December 2018 following a loss to Justin Willis at UFC Fight Night in Adelaide Australia.
