Earlier this year, Mark Hunt faced off against Alistair Overeem at UFC 209 amidst a sea of controversy regarding Hunt’s relationship with the UFC. At the time, Hunt was — and still is — in the midst of taking the UFC to court over the way the promotion handled Brock Lesnar’s entry into UFC 200 and subsequent drug testing failure. Hunt spent much of the lead-up to UFC 209 heavily criticizing the UFC while repeatedly pointing out how the organization matched him up, once again, against a foe with a murky history of PED use in Overeem.

So it's allowed for some guys but not others????

I'm really starting to hate the UFC.

Keep in mind:

1) The exception was cleared with USADA, not the UFC
2) Per the article, an exception can be made to permit IV use without a therapeutic use exemption in the event that an athlete “has an acute medical condition where an IV line was essential for treatment in a hospital admission, surgical procedure, or clinical investigation,” according to USADA guidelines.
3) Overeem cleared it with USADA in advance
4) The purpose of the ban is to prevent excessive weight cutting. Overeem came in 10 pounds under the limit, so it clearly wasn't used for that purpose.

Hunt is one of my favorite fighters, but I don't think this complaint has much merit.

Standing alone the complaint has very little merit, but when taking into account all the complaints he has a very clear picture is viewable. I hope the legend gets fat paid!

This guy sounds like a jealous chick on the rag. We usually hear him once a month too, flipping out about some UFC fighter.

He never used to say anything but after the shit the UFC pulled when he fought a juiced up Lesnar he just can't take the bullshit anymore.

Glad to hear UFCs attempt to dismiss the lawsuit failed its still going forward they need to pay for that shady shit for sure.

Keep on exposing the behind the scenes antics bud......

Hopefully more and more guys speak out.
