Mark Hunt didn’t just let Alistair Overeem’s recent failed drug test slip by like it was a once-in-a-blue-moon slip.
No, Hunt, who has been receiving an online push to fill the possible vacancy caused by Overeem against Junior dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight title, came down hard on “The Reem” during a recent appearance on The MMA Hour.
“Drugs in all sports is a big problem. Alistair is now in court, and everything that Alistair has done is meaningless now,” Hunt said. “At the end of the day, he just got caught cheating, so what’s the deal? That’s on him, he has to look himself in the mirror.”
Hunt has said that he doubts the UFC will look in his direction to face dos Santos at UFC 146 for the belt, but added, “I think maybe, they want to see a feel good story of the year,” in regards to him fighting for the belt.
Currently, Hunt is set to meet Stefan Struve at the same May card, so he’ll remain in training regardless of the opponent.
