Mark Hunt tweets he's 'unemployed;' Dana White disagrees


Mark Hunt is scheduled to fight Roy Nelson on Sept. 20 in Japan. At least that's what the UFC is hoping will happen.

Hunt tweeted on Tuesday that he was "unemployed," which was obviously alarming considering it was announced long ago that he was main eventing next month's UFC Fight Night 52 event at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan against "Big Country."

Hunt refused to elaborate on the tweets when contacted by MMAFighting.com, however, he did say he was not pulling some kind of Twitter prank.

UFC president Dana White, who is currently vacationing in Bora Bora, was asked about Hunt's claims on Twitter and he said they were "false."
