Interview: Mark Hunt says he’s starting to slur his words, memory isn’t good anymore & it’s depressing

The next time a billion dollar MMA promoter wants to argue fighters are paid too much remember this Mark Hunt quote. When MMA fans online hide behind their online handles while bashing fighters for pulling out of a fight, remember this Hunt quote.

If another MMA manager tries to speak out in support of the UFC’s deal with Reebok and leave out how the deal killed many outside the cage opportunities for fighters, remember this Hunt quote. When the full-time UFC media ignores fighter pay issues and sides with the UFC on money issues, remember this Hunt quote.

The price of being a fighter is the highest in all of pro sports. Advocate for further fighter rights, hold the UFC, Bellator and other MMA promoters to task when it comes to compensating these prize fighter fairly.

Read this Mark quote aloud and get bummed out about how this sport chews and spits out it’s competitors.
