Mark Hunt Makes Mention Of Being “Unemployed,” Dana White Says Not True

UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce that he is no longer with the UFC. However, Hunt is scheduled to face Roy Nelson on September 20 from Japan.

UFC president Dana White – who is suppose to be on vacation – responded to the comment by posting “Hell NO Mark Hunt isn’t cut” and “that’s the dumbest thing I have ever heard.”

Hunt, though, posted more than just his first tweet of “Well I’m unemployed that sucks,” adding, “Not my choice guys but going from being (excited) at the prospects of the future of fighting to being unemployed in a day lol this sucks.”

Hunt has used posts like this in the past to try and have fun with MMA media and fans, but nothing more has been mentioned of it.

The 40-year-old “Super Samoan” is coming off a draw with Antonio Silva last December. He lost via third round knockout to former UFC champion Junior dos Santos earlier in the year, halting his four-fight win streak.
