The UFC might be looking out for Mark Hunt’s best interests, but he’s not pleased with its latest decision regarding his career.

Hunt was scheduled to fight Marcin Tybura in the heavyweight main event of UFC Sydney on Nov. 19, but the promotion announced Tuesday that “The Super Samoan” has been removed from that booking due to “medical concerns” and he will be replaced by Fabricio Werdum.

Suffice to say, this apparently didn’t sit well with Hunt. He took to Instagram to post an expletive-laden message aimed at UFC president Dana White, threatening to sue him over the news:

"They took the interview out of context. I only slur my words when I have a drink." Yeah, sure. That interview was totally about your drinking habits and not about the punishment you've absorbed over the years. I feel no sympathy towards Hunt because if you start talking about your health issues in interviews, of course the UFC or athletic commission is going to step in. It's just like when Cain was talking about how he needed back surgery before his bout against Werdum at UFC 207 and then acted surprised when the commission pulled him.

The guy passed his medicals, this has nothing to do with health, except maybe a little to do with health of the UFCs public image. "We care about Mark Hunt, so we can't let him fight...", yeah fuckin right.

These medicals seem like a joke.

it all stems from that lawsuit for the Lesnar fight a few years ago
