It was recently revealed that UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt has been removed from the UFC Fight Night 121 main event against Marcin Tybura. Now Hunt has come forward with a heated response to the news.
It has not been revealed why Hunt was removed from the event, sources tell us medical reasons are to blame, but Fabricio Werdum has replaced the fighter as the night’s headliner.

Mark Hunt and the UFC have not always been on the best of terms. After suffering a defeat to Brock Lesnar, Hunt elected to sue the mixed martial arts promotion for permitting Lesnar to exempt a required four-month drug testing window concerning the fight. Lesnar, of course, failed a drug test, leading to Hunt’s legal action.
Responding to the recent news of his removal from UFC Fight Night 121, Hunt threatened UFC President Dana White with another lawsuit.
“@danawhite u peice of shit motherfuker why u fuckers pull me from the fight u getting another lawsuit u fuckwit u can kiss my ass u bald headed prick u put that chicken shit bitch in get fucked cocksucker”
UFC Fight Night 121 goes down Nov. 18 in Sydney, Australia.
