Mark Hunt to Dana White: 'You piece of sh- motherf-er'

Kiwi fighter Mark Hunt pulled from Sydney event after confessing to fight-related health issues, lashes out at UFC
Mark Hunt has accused Dana White of a hidden agenda after the heavyweight was pulled from the UFC Sydney fight card.
In an Instagram post directed at Dana White, Hunt referred to the UFC president as a "fuck-wit" and a "bald-headed prick", among other things.
Mark Hunt has been pulled from UFC Sydney's main event just over a month out from the show.
While Hunt has fought twice since filing the lawsuit with bouts against Alistair Overeem and Derrick Lewis, he still believes this altercation stems from the pending litigation rather than concern over his health and well being. Werdum defeated Hunt at UFC 180 to capture the UFC interim heavyweight championship, and would go on to defeat Cain Velasquez to secure the undisputed title.
It's another chapter in a tumultuous 12 months for the "Super Samoan", who's now embroiled in a lawsuit with his employers regarding his bout with Brock Lesnar in July 2016. "I'll forget something I did yesterday but I can remember the s-- I did years and years ago". Werdum (22-7-1), meanwhile, fought this past weekend at UFC 216, finishing short-notice replacement Walt Harris in just over a minute.
The 43-year-old was removed from the Australian UFC showpiece event for safety reasons after discussing the effects of his long career in mixed martial arts and kickboxing. Lesnar failed multiple drugs tests that were taking around the time of the fight, but took a few weeks until afterwards for the results to come back. The truth is the legal case I have filed has caused me to be withdrawn.
Lesnar was Hunt's third consecutive opponent who had tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
"The interview has been taken out of context and want to reassure all my fans, I slur my words only when I have a drink I'm fit and healthy, and would have understood if the UFC requested a medical to ensure my safety, however this is total bull**it f**k you Dana, you've always hated me you dog".
Hunt has three fights remaining on his current contract and an official told Australia's Daily Telegraph he would have to undergo further testing and evaluations prior to competing in any future UFC bout.
Miesha Tate says UFC veteran Mark Hunt is too tough for his own good and should consider retiring before sustaining any more damage.
