Mark Hunt vill starta förbund för fighters – med sig själv som ledare

Mark Hunt presskonferens

Mark Hunt och Brock Lesnar mötte varandra inne i oktogonen under UFC 200, en match som fått Hunt väldigt förbannad. Anledning till detta är bland annat att Brock testat positivt vid två tillfällen i samband med mötet, samt hur UFC har hanterat hela situationen, och nu vill Mark starta ett förbund för fighters.

Detta hade Hunt att säga om det hela, via ”MarkHunt.tv”:

The way I see it, the Brock Lesnar doping thing is just another reason why we need a fighter’s association. These guys are just making up the rules as they go.

First the Reebok thing, then Brock’s 4 month testing exemption. Conor gets pulled off a card for not going to a press conference that me or Brock didn’t go to anyway. Work that out. There’s probably a heap of others.

Once they decided they were gunna cut Conor out, they didn’t care, they just needed a name to make 200 big. Exemptions for Brock but not for Conor, I don’t know how you can just do that.

You just have to look at how Ariel gets his media pass taken away cause he broke a story about Brock, then he gets it back when other media stood up for him and called out the UFC.

These guys have lined their pockets with our blood if you ask me. I mean they deserve to get paid no doubt, they took the UFC from nothing into what it is today, but come on, most of the guys fighting, get paid nothing and have no benefits.

If you ask me there needs to be a system where they at least run things past the fighters before making these decisions and the fighters can look out for each other. We need an association where we can have our voices heard. We are massive reason why fans watch the sport and we risk our health to do it.

I’m not sure what its like in the states, but in Australia workers stick together to make sure their voice is heard. Lots of guys have talked about this, but someone needs to make this happen and I’m happy for it to be me.

Mark har nu bett fighters att höra av sig till honom gällande detta, och om de vill hålla sig anonyma fram tills dess att de har rett hur allt ska fungera så ska det inte vara några problem.
