Fabricio Werdum steps in for Mark Hunt at UFC Sydney

Fabricio Werdum steps in for Mark Hunt at UFC Sydney

Australian MMA star Mark Hunt has reignited his bitter feud with UFC president Dana White after he was sensationally pulled from the UFC's next event Down Under.

He now has legal proceedings against the UFC and Dana White in relation to his UFC 200 bout opposite Brock Lesnar in July previous year.

Speaking on Sirius XM radio, Tate, who retired on the back of two losses a year ago, says Hunt should think about doing the same.

"Sometimes I don't sleep well".

"I just hope that if it does happen, it will be in an honest and fair competition".

"I have passed all medicals two days ago and spent $100,000 on camp".

It's interesting to see Hunt refer to the Player's Voice article as an "interview" as he was quoted as author on the story.

'My memory is not that good anymore'. His place will be taken by former heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, who'll be making a swift return to action following his win against Walt Harris last weekend.

The Super Samoan continued on Instagram: "I don't slur my words and..."

It's another chapter in a tumultuous 12 months for the "Super Samoan", who's now embroiled in a lawsuit with his employers regarding his bout with Brock Lesnar in July 2016.

The straight talker pulled no punches on Instagram this morning, threatening to sue the UFC and describing White as a "bald-headed prick". "I would be like "I'm tough, I'm fine, I'm good, I got this, I know what I'm talking about, I've been doing this sport long enough, trust me" but it's just so evident in this case that it's like c'mon man, what else do you have left to prove?" Lesnar failed multiple drugs tests that were taking around the time of the fight, but took a few weeks until afterwards for the results to come back.

Lesnar was Hunt's third consecutive opponent who had tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Hunt's relationship with the UFC has been strained in recent times as a result of the failed out-of-competition drug test taken by his UFC 200 opponent Brock Lesnar, following his mauling at the hands of the WWE superstar past year. "The organisation will require that Hunt undergo further testing and evaluations prior to competing in any future UFC bout". While it appears as though "Hunt was removed from the card due to medical concerns", per MMAFighting.com, the veteran fighter was not happy with such a decision - to say the least.
