Mark Hunt has been withdrawn from the Sydney fight for further testing

To add insult to injury, Hunt has been replaced by Brazilian former heavyweight world champion, Fabricio Wedrum. In the piece, "The Super Samoan" lambastes previous opponents and fighting contemporaries who have been caught using performance enhancing drugs, while lamenting the money and financial opportunities he feels he lost out on as a result of fighting "cheaters" and "monkeys".

In the article, Hunt (13-11) said he struggled with memory loss and had started to stutter and slur his words.

Hunt's showdown with Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva may rank among the very best heavyweight fights the sport has ever seen and several of his big-name knockouts could easily be cited as at least contenders for Knockout of the Year honours in their respective years.

If you recall, Hunt recently wrote a passionate testimonial for the Players Voice, and he detailed some of the health problems that have been plaguing him due to his nearly 20 years of professional MMA and kickboxing. "That's just the price I've paid - the price of being a fighter", he continued.

"I'm disappointed that I have been withdrawn from the fight, I have passed all medicals 2 days ago".

"I spent hours the other day with the doctors", Hunt wrote.

The hack has led to multiple federal and state investigations and the departure of the company's 12-year chief executive. The cyberattack occurred through a vulnerability in an open-source application framework it uses called Apache Struts.


But today the UFC announced he would not compete in Sydney because of "medical concerns" prompted by an article on Australian sports website, Players Voice. I don't slur my words and [it] is a running joke between my wife and me my memory isn't that great but who remembers s-t they don't want to.

Hunt claims he is already out of $100,000, the amount he spent on training expenses.

'The truth is the legal case I have filed has caused me to be withdrawn. "The interview has been taken out of context and want to reassure all my fans, I slur my words only when I have a drink I'm fit and health, and would have understood if the UFC requested a medical to ensure my safety, however this is total bulls--". The former heavyweight champion had a drug testing rule for its U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) program waved by the UFC, so Lesnar could fight in the octagon on short notice.

The 43-year-old was scheduled to fight Poland's Marcin Tybura in the main event at Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena on November 19.

Werdum is coming off a 65-second submission win over Walt Harris at UFC 216 last Saturday.
