In light of Brock Lesnar’s failed drug test, his opponent at UFC 200 Mark Hunt has taken to social media to voice his opinions on the matter.

On the night Hunt lost a unanimous decision victory to Lesnar, taken some hard ground and pound in the process.

Hunt initially gave the UFC an ultimatum, give him half of Lesnar’s purse or release him from his contract.

However, in his latest tweet he has demanded not half but the full 2.5 million dollars Lesnar reportedly earned(excluding pay-per-view splits)

It did’t take long for fans to reply, asking some interesting questions.

There has been deaths in MMA, and this question of ‘what would happen if the fighter tested positive after the fact?’ Needs to be addressed, and fighters should be made aware of the full repercussions of their actions, if they choose to cheat.

Other fans considered Hunt’s demands greedy, pointing to the 700 thousand dollars he received for the fight in the first place.

Other important questions came in, discussing the issue in terms of its legal merits. Can this decision be brought to court? or can Lesnar himself be brought to court?

This is a rather grey area in the sport of MMA, an area currently being brought to light by the rigorous testing policy of USADA.

Do you agree with Hunt, should he be given Lesnar’s full fight purse?
