The bout will most likely serve as Hunt’s final one for the UFC, as he has been embroiled in a legal battle with the MMA organization since UFC 200.
Despite the issues between the fighter and the promotion, a farewell message was issued by the UFC to Hunt via Instagram:
If Hunt’s run with the UFC has officially come to a close, it would leave the fighter with an 8-8-1-1NC mark in the organization. Hunt picked up notable victories over Ben Rothwell, Cheick Kongo, Stefan Struve, Roy Nelson, Antonio Silva, Frank Mir and Derrick Lewis while in the UFC.
There is no word yet from Hunt on where he may fight at next, but the fighter is expected to get some big offers from Bellator MMA, Rizin, One Championship and other promotions.
