UFC cites 'medical concerns,' pulls Mark Hunt from UFC Fight Night 121 in favor of Fabricio Werdum


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.

More on this in just a moment.
