I already talked to the bosses. They better do something or I want out of here, I want a release from my contract. You guys are just making a mockery out of us, you’re making a fool out of me, you make me look like an idiot.
Half of his purse should come to me — maybe all of it. The guy shouldn’t get a cent. That, or refund everyone that paid money. They paid for an even playing field — they didn’t get that. They got a cheater against a guy not cheating. I’m lucky I didn’t get injured. I think it’s rubbish. I think all of his (expletive) should be taken off him. There’s no penalties or deterrents to guys that are cheating. This is not the first time, this is the third time I’ve had to fight someone doping.”
According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission , Lesnar’s show money against Hunt was $2.5 million, however, he is reportedly also expected to earn a lot more after the ppv numbers are tallied.
Let’s see if the UFC makes this right with Hunt.
