According to UFC President Dana White, Mark Hunt (9-7 MMA, 4-1 UFC) refused to replace injured Alistair Overeem (36-12 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and fight Junior dos Santos (15-2 MMA, 9-1 UFC).

"Hey dummy Mark Hunt turned down the fight with JDS as of last night so STFU when u don't know what ur talkin about," White answered in a twitter to one of his followers.

"With his win last week he broke into the top 10. He will get a top 10 fight but as of last nite he turned down JDS," ended the UFC boss.

Hunt tweeted a day before; “I want in troops and only the boss @danawhite can make it happen lets go army ATTACK the general wants in on this fight.”

Right after Dana claimed that Hunt turned down a fight he tweeted: “Jus so u know I don't turn fights down. I have never turned down a fight and even wen I was injured I had to force myself not to fight your general fears no man but the almighty”

We tweeted White hoping to get an answer. 

Guys I’m getting confused here. Write what you think.

LAS VEGAS - UFC president Dana White held his annual Fan Expo question-and-answer session with the fans on Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

One thing the UFC boss did indicate, however, is that he could very well by on the same wavelength as the fans who want the much-discussed potential Ander more
