Last month, MMA and kickboxing fan favorite Mark Hunt turned 46, but instead of spending his years at dusk on a New Zealand beach, the “Super Samoan” prepares for six more fights to end his rich career in combat sports.
Not because Hunt is having a hard time saying goodbye to the fighting game, but rather because he needs the extra cash to pay for his latest UFC lawsuit. Hunt hopes his efforts will help clean up the sport of MMA while protecting fighters from “thieves” like Dana White.
“At the end of the day, he’s just a grub,” Hunt told the Duello Channel (via MMA Junkie). “It is a small thief larva. That’s all it is. Many fighters are afraid to talk about it. You are in fact fighters not only in the Octagon, but everywhere. Getting guys like this to kiss these (expletive) guys like Dana White is a joke. It’s just a joke. He’s a fool. “
Hunt (13-14-1, 1 NC) split from the UFC after an uninspired defeat by Justin Willis at UFC Fight Night 142 in late 2018, his third straight loss in a collapse 1 -4 appalling dating from his Brock Lesnar competition about four years ago.
Which helped spur another lawsuit.
“I’m talking about a boxing fight with some people now, but I want to fight six more times,” said Hunt. “I want to end my career, but I have to pay for this UFC lawsuit. I have to finish this. I want to fight six more times and be satisfied with it. “
As the man said … no regrets.
