Lesnar would win via unanimous decision in his UFC comeback, but news of a pair of failed drug tests followed, and Hunt has been vocal about it. And, rightfully so, because three of Hunt’s recent opponents have been flagged for banned substances.
In an interview with The MMA Hour on Monday (July 25), Hunt went off on Lesnar, the UFC and Dana White.
In fact, Hunt began the interview by saying that he knew Lesnar was doping prior to UFC 200, saying: “Before the fight I was assuming he was cheating. Look at him. There’s no way that guy makes 265 pounds. That guy is a gimp, he’s sticking needles in his ass like the rest of these cheaters. And the thing about that is, he’s sitting here saying, ‘This is a fair place.’ Well, it’s not fair. These guys are cheating and they should be in court for it. [They should] lose all of their money if they’re cheating, because if I die in there, who’s going to look after my family.”
“These motherf*ckers should be penalized hard,” he added. “Dirty, scummy, cheating scum. That’s how that monkey won his world title. He didn’t do it by doing it clean. He did it by cheating, just like the rest of these cheaters.”
Hunt goes on to offer an answer, suggesting that the UFC utilize harsher penalties for fighters who fail drug tests. “Make them banned for five or 10 years. There goes your career,” he said. “Five, 10 years, you have no career left and not only that, you lose all of your money. You’re done as a fighter. That’ll stop you from doing it. That’s what I want to see done. I won’t be a part of any company who says, ‘We don’t mind you cheating or doing this or that,’ otherwise then every monkey will be [cheating].”
Hunt’s anger continued to mount as the interview went on. Just read on below.
“What upsets me about that is, I’m just thinking maybe they knew. Did they know about this? Is that why they’re not doing anything about it? Did they give this f*cking fool an exemption for four months because they knew about this? Because surely if they knew about this, they don’t give a rat’s ass about any of us. ‘Hey man, we’ll let this juiced up freaking money go in here and then go and fight with this guy.’ I mean, shucks, people say you should have a rematch with him. I wouldn’t want to waste my time with that. He’s rubbish. And they say, ‘He beat you up.’ If he didn’t stick a needle in his ass, then maybe it would be different.
“If you’ve got a big needle in your ass then you must be really scared of losing. I think this is a time that a union needs to be formed. All of these fighters need to get together, because we’re sending the wrong message. The message we’re sending out to all of these people who are watching this sport. ‘Aw man, you can get away with f*cking anything.’ To make it in the UFC, you stick a needle in your ass, end up getting millions of dollars if you make it to the top. That’s easy. Better that, give you an exemption for four months, and not only that, they’ll give you your own press conference. That fool had his own press conference and made everyone wait for his own press conference. What a joke.”
“I’ll go and work somewhere else. Like I said, I don’t give a sh*t. If we’ve got to sue their asses, well then f*ck you, you’re going to get sued. You scummy c*nts. The problem is everyone these days, ‘Man, I want to get into the UFC.’ F*ck the UFC. You’re sh*t. You motherf*ckers don’t look after nobody.
“We’ll let this f*cking white piece of sh*t f*cking stick needles in his ass and say, ‘Oh, he’s going to take us all the way to the f*cking bank.’ Let’s give him f*cking millions of dollars and not worry about this motherf*cker. You know what? F*ck that and f*ck your sh*t company. Look at that for a contract. You can sue me on that, motherf*ckers.
“People are scared for years because the company is going to get them. Well, f*ck the company. They don’t give a sh*t about you or anyone else. If I walk away now, I don’t care. I walk away knowing that I haven’t cheated to get in this spot. I can keep my head [up] and say, you know, I might have to make a lot of different sacrifices to change the way things are, but so be it. That’s fine. At least I knew that I went to the top and all you find at the top are dirty f*cking scummy cheaters, and a company that’s going to help them do it.
“I’ll be comfortable with that. There’s no way I even worry about that. You get told that it’s a clean sport, and people are testing, they’re doing this and that, that’s fine you’re doing all that testing, but what penalties are these monkeys giving them? You’re not giving no penalties at all. USADA, f*cking NASA, whatever the f*ck they are, what penalties are they giving them? Nothing. They’re just saying, ‘Oh, hey, we caught this guy cheating and he has to give us all this money.’ Why the f*ck should you get it? Why should they get that sh*t? They’re not the ones who lost. They’re not the ones who had their brand go down. I didn’t say anything when I beat the other two guys who I fought who were cheating, and probably the rest of the other cheaters that I fought, but at the end of the day, enough is enough.”
