Dana White: Hunt turned down the fight with JDS - A Lie?


Picture

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.
