UFC officials today announced that Mark Hunt will no longer compete in the promotions’s return to Australia.
Citing “medical concerns,” Hunt has been pulled from a planned headlining matchup with Marcin Tybura at November’s UFC Fight Night 121 event at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena. Fresh off a win at this past weekend’s UFC 216, Fabricio Werdum replaces Hunt in the night’s main event.
Hunt immediately took to social media to voice his displeasure with the promotion’s decision.
