UFC Fight Night 121: Mark Hunt replaced with Fabricio Werdum

UFC Fight Night 121: Mark Hunt replaced with Fabricio Werdum

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

If you recall, Hunt recently wrote a passionate testimonial for the Players Voice, and he detailed some of the health problems that have been plaguing him due to his nearly 20 years of professional MMA and kickboxing.

The Daily Telegraph reported that UFC officials reviewed the article where Hunt spoke about the consequences he's paid in his long fighting career.

In a recent piece for Players Voice, Hunt spoke of some of the health problems he has seemingly suffered during a combat sports career which began almost 20 years ago. 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.

"The Super Samoan" obviously feeling insulted by the fact that yet another one of his opponents was popped for steroids filed a lawsuit against the UFC and has been embroiled in legal battle with them ever since.

He posted a more measured response an hour later.

"Sometimes I don't sleep well", he said.

'My memory is not that good anymore'.

"I'll forget something I did yesterday but I can remember the shit I did years and years ago".

Hunt filed a civil lawsuit against the UFC in January after Lesnar failed two doping tests following their bout previous year.

Hunt's manager also released this statement: "UFC mentioned they were concerned with Mark's health based on his previous interview with mentioning slight health issues".

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 previous year.

Hunt's spot will be filled by former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, who needed just 65 seconds to submit Walt Harris at UFC 216 on October 7. "The organization will require that Hunt undergo further testing and evaluations prior to competing in any future UFC bout".

Replying to the promotion and in particular UFC President Dana White on social media, Hunt went on a tirade.

In the article, Hunt (13-11) said he struggled with memory loss and had started to stutter and slur his words.
