    He just posted a comment as response to a fan that said he can't wait to see him back in cage again:

    ''U probably won't ever see me again this sort of corruption has ruined my love for wat I have been blessed to do''

    In response to the fan saying "looking forward to seeing you in the cage again," Hunt said "you probably won't ever see me again this sort of corruption has ruined my love for what I've been blessed to do."

    Sure, he might retire. But Hunt's mouth has seemed to be out of control lately; I wouldn't be surprised if he's just talking out of anger, not an actual thought out decision.

    We'll see.

    Way to cut your nose off to spite your face.
    Let's hope he's made enough cash to live comfortably for the rest of his life.

    I hope they grant him a release and he can go to Rizin.

    The guy (or any other fighter) has no control over what the gangsters in Las Vegas say - "It's a clean sport, please submit your whereabouts and bodily fluids all year round. But that guy over there, you opponent in a months time? He doesn't have to do that lol"

    At least in Rizin, it's pretty clear everyone is on PEDs and I don't think Hunto cares about that - but he certainly doesn't like being lied to and double standards.

    I really don't understand what he's fussing about. Did they announce it before the fight that Brock will not be obliged to pass the tests? Did he not know that? Did he expect Brock was clean? Gimme a break.

    From reading his book, he already made millions before he ever fought in the UFC. The problem is, he spent it just as fast as he earnt it.

    I guess he is mostly pissed as Brock gets a relatively clean pass, USADA might fine him but it won't be substantial. It doesn't make much sense that someone who misses weight has to give up their purse, but if you get caught cheating there is no incentive for the guy who took on someone who was cheating.

    I believe Hunt and others who end up facing someone who tests positive should be getting a 40 percent return on their opponents pay cut...especially when they're main or co main fights.

    Not sure all this is/was a good move to begin with but "in with a penny, in with a pound"
    Maybe the threat of Hunto working on a fighter union will force the UFC to discuss with him to avoid it and give him some "backroom bonuses"
    We'll see

    Yep. Doesn't make him a bad person or anything like that, but he's certainly had the opportunity to "get out ahead" by now. I know he really doesn't have too many other skills that he can market or monetise, but he shouldn't really have to keep fighting and clawing for a payday in his 40s.

    He got a full time gig as a whiner. Can't wait to see how obese he is after a year.

    Man talks the talk and walks the walk

    They put him in with 3 cheaters in a row. So 100% cheater ratio in the last 2 years of his fighting? The UFC is a joke :D
