Mark Hunt recently talked to FOX Sports about his upcoming heavyweight fight with Brock Lesnar at UFC 200 and Lesnar being exempted from USADA drug testing due to the fight being short notice. According to Yahoo's Kevin Iole, Lesnar was tested by USADA Wednesday. The results should show up on the agency's official website next week.
Hunt was not happy that Lesnar was originally exempt from the testing, saying:
“I don’t think that’s fair. I think it’s load of bulls***, I think it’s rubbish. I don’t think anyone should be exempt from testing. If they’re trying to clean the sport up — mixed martial arts — this is a bad way to do it. I don’t care who you are. It’s ridiculous. 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.”
“He’ll probably be super strong being juiced to the gills but it doesn’t mean anything, man. I’m ready for anything he has.”
Hunt also talked about his training and more, click here to read in full.
A first time failure of USADA's policies can result in a two-year ban from the sport.
