Mark Hunt rips Brock Lesnar over USADA doping violation

Friday night, Brock Lesnar was informed of a possible USADA doping violation stemming from a sample collection on June 28, two weeks before his victory over Mark Hunt at UFC 200.

His opponent at the event doesn’t seem too happy about that news.

Hunt, who had accused Lesnar of being “juiced to the gills” days before their fight in Las Vegas, spoke with not long after news broke. He accused the UFC of giving cheaters “a slap on the wrist” and said that he wanted half of Lesnar’s purse or a release from the company.

Hunt then recanted that request and said on Twitter that he believed cheaters didn’t deserve anything and he wanted Lesnar’s entire purse from UFC 200.

It is unlikely that Mark Hunt will receive his request, but you can’t blame him for being upset. This is the third time in less than two years that one of his opponents has been hit with a violation as Antonio Silva tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone after fighting Hunt to a five-round draw in December 2013 and, earlier this year, Frank Mir was notified by USADA of a potential PED violation after Hunt knocked him out in the first round of their fight in March.

Yeah, I would be pretty miffed too.
