    Christina Denning, the attorney for Hunt, told MMA Fighting that she is considering amending her complaint in the lawsuit in the wake of Lesnar’s return. Hunt has alleged that the UFC, White, and Lesnar have committed racketeering, fraud, battery, and civil conspiracy, among other things, with regards to Lesnar’s failed drug test in relation to Lesnar’s fight with Hunt at UFC 200 in 2016.



    With Lesnar now back on the UFC roster and about to earn a title shot, Denning believes it could bolster Hunt’s case.



    “We debated whether or not to, while the motion to dismiss is pending, to alter the complaint again, to keep adding more facts regarding the way that the organization works and perhaps the unfairness of it,” Denning said. “So, that’s something that we have not done yet, but we definitely [might] with all the buzz around [Lesnar] coming back.”

    “We debated whether or not to, while the motion to dismiss is pending, to alter the complaint again, to keep adding more facts regarding the way that the organization works and perhaps the unfairness of it,” Denning said. “So, that’s something that we have not done yet, but we definitely [might] with all the buzz around [Lesnar] coming back.”



    The lawsuit alleges that the UFC, White, and Lesnar intentionally pushed back Lesnar’s signing for UFC 200 to as late as possible, so Lesnar could avoid USADA until a month or so out of the fight. Lesnar has admitted in interview that he began his negotiations with the UFC months earlier.



    “On information and belief, WHITE and UFC were intentionally delaying the announcement because LESNAR was using banned substances and needed additional time in order to circumvent testing procedures,” the complaint reads.



    Since the amended complaint was filed, Denning said the judge in the case, which is in U.S. District Court (District of Nevada), has ruled that the claim of breach of covenant of good faith and fair dealing will go before a jury sometime in the future. The other charges, including racketeering conspiracy (RICO), fraud, battery and more, are still pending motions to dismiss, Denning said. Hunt’s legal team has filed oppositions and is currently waiting on the judge to make a decision.



    “I kind of have a feeling that the judge has heard enough of our arguments and the complaint hasn’t changed a whole lot,” Denning said. “So, there might be just an order that comes out some day soon that tells us what’s in and what’s out.”



    There could be more to chew on now that Lesnar has returned in a position of favor, though, Denning said. She said that the situation shows that it “actually pays to take the [banned] substances” if you are a UFC star.

    I just want to skip ahead and see what actually comes of this, because it seems likely to me that nothing will come of it, but I hope I'm wrong.

    Get over it Hunt. You got your ass beat and outstruck on the feet by Lesnar after a 5 year layoff. Now he’s about to fight to DC. Jacked white boy, deal with it.

    I love Mark hunt and iv know he got cheated, but he's acting like this is the first time he's fought a roider?

    Lots of dudes still roid as much as they can get away with, and Mark had to know going into a fight with Brock that he was going to be on the juice. That's kind of Brock's thing.

    When you used to watch this carefree, likable, silent slugger in Pride and his unlikely success story in the UFC, did you ever envision him being this big of drama queen?

    Let it go, man.

    Tired of his crying. If he was so against PEDS, why did he even accept the fight in the first place? You can take one look at brock and see that he's a walking pharmacy, Mark knew what he was signing up for. It's like going out with a well known whore and getting mad because she cheated on you.
