WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar announced his return to MMA at UFC 199 on Saturday night. Usually a returning athlete must surrender to 4 months of drug testing before being allowed to compete under USADA Anti-Doping Policy rules. But they made an exemption on Lesnars behalf so he can fight on UFC 200.
Mark Hunt wasn’t to pleased with this news, check out his response from an interview he did with Fox Sports.
“I don’t think that’s fair. I think it’s load of bullshit, I think it’s rubbish,”
I don’t think it’s a great move. I think he’s juiced to the gills — and I still think I’m going to knock him out. So I don’t think that’s correct. I don’t think he should be allowed to get a four-month exemption otherwise everyone else should. Otherwise I should start juicing.
“How are you going to clean the sport up doing that s***? It won’t happen. I don’t think it’s fair.”
“I’ve already voiced my opinion to (UFC boss) Dana (White) about it but apparently he (Lesnar) has been getting tested but he’s probably been off a couple of cycles anyway.
“I think everyone should be tested equally and fairly. Make it an even playing field otherwise you might as well get everyone juiced up and have the juicing UFC competition and the non-juicing (competition).
“I’m always going to fight anyway, it doesn’t matter,” Hunt said. “I love competition but I just don’t think it’s fair. I mean, I don’t think it’s an even playing field.
“But it doesn’t mean you’re not going to get knocked out. Frank Mir was juicing and he got knocked out.
“The same thing’s going to happen with Brock Lesnar.
“Shucks. I don’t give a rats what you take. I’ll knock your face off, that’s what I’ll do. I’ll teach you for taking that s*** anyway.
