Mark Hunt has had enough of his native country New Zealand ignoring his accomplishments.
Hunt, who faces Antonio Silva in December at UFC Fight Night 33, was fine with the promotion using the Australian flag for him to promote the event.
Why did he allow that? Well, let the fighter himself explain:
Jus so u know I said It was ok to rep the Australian flag,even though I’m a kiwi.ive been living in Australia for nearly 20 years wife kids are Australian.i call Australia my home.and one of the main reasons Im really proud to rep the Australian flag is cause NZ has never recognized my achievements in my sport the only man to ever win the k-1 world title outside of Europe and will be the only one man to ever do it.i been fighting for 23 years 15 years at the top of the world,and what recognition does NZ give me nothing,so don’t ask me why anymore,I have jus told u.
Hunt (9-8) has won four of six UFC bouts, but was recently stopped by Junior dos Santos. He has numerous K-1 world titles. However, it appears as if the Kiwi is not happy with New Zealand.
