“Sometimes you gotta protect these guys from themselves”. These are the words from Dana White in regards to pulling Mark Hunt from UFC: Sydney. Hunt went off on Dana White via his Instagram the other day after he learned that Dana had yanked him from the card.
In one of his posts, The Super Samoan said,
“I’m disappointed that I have been withdrawn from the fight. I have passed all medicals two days ago, and spent 100,000 on camp. The truth is, the legal case I have filed has caused me to be withdrawn. The interview (With ‘Players Voice’) has been taken out of context and I 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 bullshit. F**k you Dana. You’ve always hated me, you dog.”
In this video with TMZ, Dana assures us that him hating Hunt isn’t the case at all.
“I don’t Hate Mark Hunt at all. I’ve never hated Mark Hunt. He knows that. I was actually really good to Mark Hunt.”
