Former UFC fighter Mark Hunt returns to boxing next month, when he faces Paul Gallen in a heavyweight division encounter.
Hunt, who spent over eight years in the UFC, feels bad for the UFC fighters who supposedly get paid chump change when compared to what real boxers get.
“I feel sorry for these UFC fighters that are getting paid chump change compared to what the real boxers get,” he said to Fox Sports Australia. “Some of our UFC fighters are getting jacks***.”
The fighter recently amended a lawsuit against the UFC, but Hunt has lost all previous lawsuits he had against the UFC.
One thing that Hunt is adamant about is that the UFC cheated him and he’ll continue to battle them in court.
“I don’t feel I got a fair go with that company,” he said. “Making it to the top of any sport you should get a fair go but I feel I got cheated by these guys totally. They cheated me out of the end of my career and I’m walking my walk in the courthouse.”
