- Mark Hunt (12-10-1) appeared on the most recent episode of Inside MMA, as seen on the video above. During the interview, Hunt was asked about Brock Lesnar getting all the publicity for their upcoming clash at UFC 200, despite Hunt being the betting favorite.
Hunt also talked about recently expressing his disapproval of Lesnar being granted a USADA exemption for the four-month written rule so that he can fight at UFC 200. Hunt said that there should be an event playing field, but "I guess money talks these days, right?" He said that he doesn't care about what's happening with the test, and that he's just looking forward to winning the fight.
"I mean it [a victory over Brock] does nothing for my rankings, but it does everything for my profile, of course, because he's such a huge name," Hunt noted.
