Several UFC fighters did not hold back on making fun of Brock Lesnar after news came out that he failed one of the drug tests administered by USADA.
Stefan Struve called Lesnar a “f**king fake ass cheating wrestler” and said he he was not surprised. Fellow heavyweight Roy Nelson was pretty sarcastic in his comment saying he was “shocked” and put a smiley at the end.
“Mighty Mouse” Demetrious Johnson said it’s a shame that Lesnar makes $2.5 million and still is flagged by USADA and Elias Theodorou said that “Seems ‘Jacked White Boy’ is on the banned substance list..” Theodorou was referring to the comment Lesnar told the press in one of the press conferences that he’s just a jacked white boy and they just have to deal with it.
But perhaps the man most irritated by all this is his UFC 200 opponent Mark Hunt. Hunt said that this is the third time that he had to fight a “cheater” and told MMAFighting.com that he wants half of Brock Lesnar’s $2.5 million purse or else he wants to be released from the company effective immediately.
“The cheaters get a slap on the wrist and walk off,” Hunt told MMA Fighting. “What penalty or deterrent is there to make them think twice? Nothing,” he said, adding that the Nevada State Athletic Commission wasn’t the one fighting Lesnar, but he did, and lost.
Mark Hunt wasn’t happy when UFC gave Lesnar a waiver when he came back, circumventing the 4 month notice that UFC fighters have to give if they intend to come back. USADA start to test returning fighters immediately and Lesnar, although he wasn’t tested 4 months prior, was tested a total of eight times.
When Hunt learned he is fighting Brock Lesnar, he told FOX Sports Australia that Lesnar is “juiced to the gills,” a comment which raised some eyebrows at the time but now…
