Australian fighter Tag Hunt has questioned the UFC’s decision to waive Brock Lesnar’s medicine test before their UFC 200 showdown.
Lesnar’s challenger at next month’s ufc 200 event has launched a scathing invasion on the WWE superstar after he was awarded an exemption from medicine testing.
Hunt is furious within the UFC’s decision, professing that the 38-year-old from South Dakota, USA, is “juiced to the gills.”
The other day, Lesnar arrived of his four-and-a-half season mixed fighting techinques hiatus to consent to co-headline the UFC’s landmark 200th event with Jon Jones versus Daniel Cormier II on Sunday July 9 at the T-Mobile Market in NEVADA, Nevada.
Usually four a few months’ notice is necessary for drug trials under the UFC’s anti-doping insurance plan guidelines, governed by america Anti-Doping Firm (USADA).
However, the guidelines do allow an exemption to get at the UFC’s discretion “in exceptional circumstances or where in fact the strict application of this guideline would be manifestly unjust to an sportsman.”
It has prompted an hostile response from Lesnar’s opposition, with Symbol Hunt expressing:
“I don’t believe that’s fair. I believe it’s fill of bulls***, I believe it’s rubbish,” Hunt informed UFC Combat WEEK on Fox Sports activities within an exclusive interview.
“I don’t believe anyone should be exempt from tests. If they’re attempting to clean the activity up – blended fighting techinques – this is a poor way to do it. I don’t caution who you are. It’s absurd.
“I don’t believe from the great move. I believe he’s juiced to the gills – and I still think I’ll knock him out. THEREFORE I don’t believe that’s right. I don’t believe he should be permitted to get a four-month exemption normally everybody else should. In any other case I will start juicing.
“How will you clean the activity up doing that s***? It will not happen. I don’t believe it’s fair.
“I’ve already voiced my judgment to [UFC supervisor] Dana [White] about any of it but evidently he [Lesnar] has been getting examined but he’s probably been off several cycles anyhow.”
The UFC released a affirmation to advertising organizations saying that Lesnar’s prolonged spell from the UFC and that he only agreed upon a package to deal with at UFC 200 on Fri contributed to your choice to waive the four-month notice guideline.
Lesnar hasn’t stepped in to the UFC cage since Dec 2011, when he lost a name eliminator against Alistair Overeem with a first-round TKO.
Hunt, 42, keeps an MMA record of 12-10-1, and mind into UFC 200 pursuing back-to-back victories over Antonio Silva and Frank Mir with a TKO and KO respectively, both in the first circular.
The grappler continues to be authorized with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) which is expected to go back to the squared group prior to the end of the entire year. The athletics entertainment company could face criticism off the trunk of the UFC’s decision to waive the wrestler’s medicine test as the WWE itself has been scrutinized over time as it pertains to its sportsmen and drugs.
