Mark Hunt explains unemployment tweet: ‘I was hungry’


UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt reveals the reason as to why he publicly stated that he was fired from the UFC on twitter.

Apparently when Mark Hunt is hungry, he mistakenly assumes he is an unemployed man.

The longtime heavyweight competitor recently took to twitter to reveal that he was "unemployed," which was unsettling considering he was expected to headline the upcoming UFC Fight Night show in Saitama, Japan against Roy Nelson.

While Hunt did not explain the reasons as to why he had apparently been released from the promotion, UFC President Dana White soon restored order and made it clear that the New Zealand native was not without a job.

Two days later, Hunt finally decided to reveal the true reason behind his alarming tweet: hunger.

UFC Fight Night: Hunt vs. Nelson takes place Sep. 20 in Saitama, Japan.
