Mark Hunt Turned Down Junior Dos Santos Rematch Due To Contract Issues

Mark Hunt wants to compete again.

He just wants to be compensated if his opponent ever fails another USADA drug test.

Hunt’s attorney, Christina Denning, confirmed on a recent edition of “The Luke Thomas Show,” that the UFC proposed Hunt vs. Junior dos Santos for UFC 206 in December.

“I flew out to Vegas, I believe it was in late September, and met with three attorneys on behalf of the UFC to try to talk about a resolution, because (Hunt) wants to fight,” Denning said. “Mark turned down the upcoming UFC 206 fight against Junior dos Santos because the UFC wouldn’t agree to the terms that we had proposed.”

That proposal states that Hunt would receive the entire fight purse of his opponent if that fighter fails his post-fight or pre-fight drug test.

Hunt’s dealt with that in several of his most recent fights, including a July battle with Brock Lesnar. Denning did add that she has not heard a definite “no” from the UFC about adding the possible provision, which could change the course of the promotion moving forward if allowed.

The 42-year-old Hunt fought dos Santos in 2013, losing via third round knockout. That snapped a four-fight win streak for him at the time.
