Hunt doesn’t want $50K, he wants a victory after ‘Bigfoot’ failed drug test
Mark Hunt says ‘Bigfoot’ can keep his money.
Hunt is not interested in Antonio Silva’s $50,000 bonus from UFC Fight Night in Australia on Dec. 7. He just wants the draw on his record to turn into a win, he told UFC Tonight’s Ariel Helwani.
Silva failed a post-fight drug test after the two put on one of the greatest heavyweight fights MMA has ever seen. Because of Silva’s elevated levels of testosterone, he’ll be suspended and forfeit his $50,000 bonus to Hunt.
Hunt would rather get a victory instead of a draw since Silva was on performance-enhancing substances. The UFC told Helwani that it won’t happen – he’ll keep the draw on his docket, but ‘Bigfoot’ will be hit with a no contest.
Silva was medically approved for a testosterone usage exemption, but he was not within the allowed limits. This is his second career failed drug test.
