Mark Hunt sent out cryptic tweets, stating that he is now 'unemployed'. Does this mean his UFC: Japan headlining bout is off?

Although booked to face Roy Nelson as the headliner for UFC: Japan next month, heavyweight slugger Mark Hunt sent out a cryptic tweet today suggesting that it may not happen. The PRIDE veteran didn't provide much details, but as he posted on both twitter and facebook, he's apparently now 'unemployed':

Did Hunt get hacked, and was able to post on both social media accounts? Did he do something that forced the UFC to release him from his contract, even with a fight booked next month? Not much details were made available at the moment, but the speculation is likely to spread like wildfire until that happens.

Hunt is coming off a draw in an epic clash against Antonio Silva, where the latter also failed a post-fight drug test.
