Former UFC fighter Mark Hunt had filed a lawsuit against the UFC in January 2017, accusing the promotion of fraud and conspiracy surrounding a bout against former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar at UFC 200.
The final piece of that lawsuit, a charge of breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, has been ruled in favor of the UFC by the judge overseeing the proceedings according to MMA Junkie. With that ruling now complete, it means that all of Hunt’s lawsuit against the UFC has been ruled in favor of the promotion and Hunt has lost the battle against the promotion.
Hunt would post the following response to what went down on Instagram:
I tried to make things even on the battlefield of Mma but again the cheating company @danawhite @ufc with all its billions they ripped everyone off win again someone will die against a steroid using cheater and your shit rip off company will be at fault @ufc I hope all u fuckers burn filthy dog cunnnniesss ---------------- u can go and get fuuuuuaaaaaarrrkkkkeddd Uwonthisbattlebutthewarwillcontinue #aliactmotherfuckers I am not the first to sue this rip off company and sure as hell wont be the last to sue the @ufc u can’t keep ripping fighters off and run monopoly on the market someone’s going to put u motherfuckers down @danawhite @ufc
There is no word yet on what is next for Hunt, who hasn’t fought or signed with any promotion since exiting the UFC with a loss to Justin Willis at UFC Fight Night Adelaide.
