Mark Hunt Blasts Former Opponent Fabricio Werdum For Taking a Banned Substance
There are few more outspoken in the sport of MMA than
Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight Mark Hunt when it
comes to fighters taking banned substances.
The Sydney, Australia-based New Zealander has been critical in the
past of fighters who have taken performance-enhancing drugs in MMA
particularly a former opponent of his in World Wrestling
Entertainment superstar Brock Lesnar who beat Hunt back in 2016 at
UFC 200 by unanimous decision before the decision was overturned
after Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene.
Hunt has even filed a lawsuit against the UFC regarding the
incident and so it was no surprise to hear Hunt’s thoughts on
another of his former opponents and former UFC heavyweight champion
Fabricio Werdum who this week received a two-year suspension by the
United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
Speaking to reporters at a UFC media day this week (via MMA Junkie), Hunt didn’t
hold back in his assessment of the Brazilian. “I’m glad that
Fabricio Werdum got caught, that little (expletive),” Hunt said.
“Go back to the favelas. (Expletive) you, you little (expletive).
Good job. He was supposed to be here, but that’s what you get for
being weak. That’s what you get, Fabricio, for being a weak-minded
person. See you later.”
The 44-year-old Hunt is back in action this weekend when he takes
on Alexey Oleynik at UFC Fight Night 136 at Moscow’s Olympic
Stadium in the UFC’s first-ever event in Russia. Hunt is excited to
test his skills against the Russian but claimed to be happy just to
be fighting someone who is free from banned substances, in light of
the news regarding Werdum.
“He’s a clean fighter, so it’s great,” Hunt told reporters, during
a media day on Thursday.
