Werdum stepping in. Ufc pulled hunt for medical reasons. Mainly that hunt recently admitted to showing signs of cte and he doesnt care if he dies fighting

He's fought a few times since that lawsuit. It's gotta be because of what the op said. Admitting symptoms of cte and saying he doesn't care if he dies fighting. If he did die, it would fuck the UFC

In all honesty he should definantly not have said the things he said. Talked his way out of 800k and if he ever does get cleared to fight again it will take forever. Its a shame really

The last thing the UFC would want to do is violate the terms of Hunt's contract while facing a lawsuit from him. Hunt admitting to experiencing symptoms of CTE gave Fat Bald the excuse he needed to pull him from the card without violating the contract. Plus, FB is in the good graces of fans and media now because of his actions throughout the Las Vegas tragedy, so this will fall by the wayside. He's as greasy as greasy comes. If he actually cared that much about fighter safety, he wouldn't have let Bork fight without joining the USADA program for 4 months or whatever it is.

Nobody in the UFC gives a fuck about fighter safety. They only care about how it will affect their image as a sport in the future if Hunt did have CTE or died fighting.

I will preface this with I only nut hug 3 fighters Hendo, Bibi Fernandes and Mark Hunt.
I understand the UFC and Dana might have personal reasons for pulling Mark but I don't see how anyone can side with Hunto on this one.
Our entertainment is not worth anyone's death, Hunt, admittedly, needs help not another fight.
The things he said are so sad and to know the kind of shape he could be in mentally and physically in just a few short years is heartbreaking.
Hunt suffered enough, the man no longer NEEDS to fight he absolutely needs to find something else to do.
Unfortunate as it is that MMA is the landscape it is but for the love of god a man doesn't need to make a living if he's gonna die the next time he tries to.
How does he support his family when he's comatose?
How much is full time in house respite care in places like Australia and New Zealand?
Every fight he fights now to "earn" money for himself and his family is ultimately just going to be more for them to pay in the end.
Hospital care, respite care, medications and the special equipment needed for CTE treatment will not be cheap.
Funerals aren't cheap either.
For the love of all that is good if you honestly believe Mark hunt is right here, he should be allowed to fight than you need to do some research on CTE and dementia pugilistica and what it's like to live "punch drunk".
Not a single dollar Mark hunt could make fighting in any form of combat sports will make up for the loss he would leave behind should the worst happen.
I wouldn't wish a life of CTE on anyone, that's why I am mesmerized by fighting sports, these men risk every inch of their body and mind for us so I feel it wrong for us to ask anymore than anything they've already given us.
It's time for Hunt to lay down his sword and walk off into the sunset before he commits seppuku.
