Dana White: I Don't Hate Mark Hunt, Just Protecting Him from Himself
Dana White says he pulled Mark Hunt from next month's "UFC Sydney" card because "sometimes you got to protect these guys from themselves."
White didn't specifically say the move was due to the article Hunt penned for the Player's Voice where he said he's been experiencing memory loss and slurred speech but it seems obvious that the article was the trigger point.
Hunt has been very upset about the move and trashed Dana on social media calling him a "piece of shit motherfucker" and a "bald headed prick."
White tells that the move isn't personal he actually really likes Hunt but, "Sometimes, you got to protect these guys from themselves and that's what we're looking into right now."
