Mark Hunt doesn’t care about money. That is what he told the NZ Herald when he spoke about his recent situation with the UFC and his loss to Brock Lesnar. Having fought three opponents that have violated the USADA Anti-Doping Policy, Hunt thinks the penalties for testing positive aren’t harsh enough to clean up the sport.

People are scared about speaking out because of job security - I will lose a lot if they fire me. But like I said, I don’t care about money, it’s about what’s right. I could die. If something happened to me while I was at work because of a guy enhancing his performances, then what do I need money for? To pay my hospital bills?
— Mark Hunt

In the past, many fighters have spoken up about a lot of things in the UFC. Everything from the Reebok sponsorship deal, to the forming of a Fighter’s Association the way Hunt has and have been removed from their roster. Will he be next?
