  • Mark Hunt launched a tirade of abuse against the organisation┬┐s boss Dana White after he was booted from an upcoming Sydney event

Dana White says he pulled Mark Hunt from next month's "UFC Sydney" card because "sometimes you gotta protect these guys from themselves".

Yet given the serious nature of his claims, UFC president Dana White now wants Hunt flown Stateside to be assessed by his fight company's own physician. For years, he made his name on both the kickboxing and mixed martial arts circuit not only as a result of his iron chin and near-immeasurable punching power, but also due to the fact that - as fighters go - the man just seemed to enjoy the thrill of combat as much as one really could whilst being socked in the jaw repeatedly by all manner of attacks. Lewis was replaced by Walt Harris, who Werdum stopped in the first round via submission.

Tybura, 31, is on a three-fight win streak, decisioning Andrei Arlovski in his last bout at UFC Fight Night 111 in June. It is the fifth UFC event for the city.

Hunt is suing the UFC and former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar after "The Beast" tested positive for performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) following their UFC 200 co-main event meeting.

Former DHS chief of staff nominated to be homeland security secretary
Trump urged the Senate to look at Nielsen's qualifications, calling for a quick confirmation. When Kelly served as Homeland Security secretary until recently, Nielsen was his top aide.


After a scathing, expletive-filled Mark Hunt (13-11-1 MMA, 8-5-1 UFC) rant was directed in his direction, White insists he doesn't hate "The Super Samoan", as the veteran heavyweight suggested.

Following his quick submission win over Gerald Harris at UFC 216, Fabricio Werdum has been picked to replace Hunt against Tybura in the UFC Fight Night 121 headliner on November 19. "The health-related statements made by Hunt in the article represent the first time UFC was made aware of these claims", they continued.

"I have passed all medicals two days ago and spent $100,000 on camp".

As revealed by The Daily Telegraph, Hunt has been banned from headlining the upcoming UFC Sydney card after using a website article to reveal he was suffering symptoms linked to brain injury.

"Sometimes I don't sleep well", wrote the fighter, now 43. I embarked on covering the sport in 2002 and since then have written thousands of articles for both print and online media, before branching out and starting Fight News Australia in 2010. In any case, Mark Hunt's fighting future once again appears to be in limbo.

"I never hated Mark Hunt", said White.

'My memory is not that good anymore'.
