- Mark Hunt took the opportunity to hit out at UFC president Dana White after the company’s split with USADA
- The UFC has begun working with a new anti-doping company
Mark Hunt is seemingly thrilled to have learned about the recent parting of UFC and its anti-doping agency partner USADA. The UFC legend even appeared to be hinting at continuing his legal battle against his former employer, specifically the company’s president Dana White.
Mark is not done yet
In light of the UFC-USADA split, “The Super Samoan” put out a mix of cryptic and troll posts on Instagram. In the posts, Hunt understandably mocked White and blatantly accused the UFC boss of wanting to allow Conor McGregor fight without being tested by USADA.
Check out Hunt’s tirade below:
As most of us can recall, Hunt lost his legal battle against the UFC last month. He was prompted to take legal action following the controversies stemming from his UFC 200 bout with Brock Lesnar, who tested positive for banned substances heading into the match.
UFC quickly moved on from USADA
USADA’s partnership with the UFC will officially end on January 1, 2024. The news broke amid McGregor’s uphill battle with USADA’s testing window rule. The ongoing issue with “Notorious” ultimately resulted in the split after it was noted that the working relationship between the UFC and USADA has become “untenable.”
As it stands, UFC Senior Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance, Jeff Novitzky confirmed that the company has already been working with renowned sports medicine doctor, Dr. Dan Eichner for a new and improved drug testing system the UFC is set to implement. The new system will be run and supervised by Drug Free Sport.
