Mark Hunt blasts Brock Lesnar as ‘cheating scum’
Mark Hunt remains as incensed as ever over his loss to Brock Lesnar at UFC 200 and the ensuing revelations that Lesnar failed two drug tests prior to the fight.
Lesnar defeated Hunt by unanimous decision and was dominant during the fight. But his victory will likely be overturned in the coming months as the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) reviews Lesnar’s two failed drug tests prior to the fight — one weeks before the fight and the other the day of the event.
After news was released on Tuesday saying that Lesnar had failed a second drug test, Hunt blasted his UFC 200 opponent via Twitter as “cheating scum.”
Hunt told another Twitter user that he wasn’t interested in a rematch with a “dirty cheat” either.

After Lesnar’s first positive test was revealed, Hunt said he wanted half of Lesnar’s $2.5 million purse for the fight. He then upgraded that to wanting the whole amount. Unfortunately for him, a good chunk of that money will likely go to NSAC as a fine.
Reports have said Lesnar tested positive for an estrogen blocker that enhances testosterone levels.
