As of UFC 226 in July, Brock Lesnar’s UFC return has been somewhat confirmed. To make things more interesting, he is slated to challenge Daniel Cormier for the heavyweight title.
One fighter that is unsurprisingly not happy about Lesnar’s potential return and title shot is Mark Hunt. These sentiments were expressed during a recent interview with Submission Radio.
“How’s that work? The motherf—rs a cheater,” Hunt said. “How is that controversy? F—n little c-nt is f—n cheating, using steroids. F—k, man, how is that – (you’re) talking ‘a little bit of controversy?’ The f—ng guy is cheating.”
“He’s cheating and trying to hurt me and you say, ‘oh, we’re going to be nice here’. F—k that cheater. How are you gonna be nice to the guy that is taking shortcuts, man? Don’t give him that. Why would you want to give him that sort of sh-t? F—k, they don’t deserve it. You know, all these guys are just shortcut takers, and to me that’s all they’ll ever be. Nothing else.”
While nothing has been set in stone as far as his UFC return goes, USADA confirmed that Lesnar has begun to re-enter the drug testing pool. The agency also stated that the former champion and WWE star will not be eligible to compete until January 8th, 2019.
As for Hunt, he is scheduled to headline the UFC’s upcoming fight night event in Moscow, Russia against Aleksei Oleinik.
