Last week, Brock Lesnar made his long awaited return to MMA when he defeated Hunt by unanimous decision at UFC 200. However, it’s since been revealed that Lesnar failed a pair of drug tests in the days leading up to the event, which could change his victory to a no-contest pending an appeal. First, Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance almost two weeks before the event on June 28. Then, it was revealed on Tuesday that Lesnar tested positive for the same drug — possibly clomiphene, according to ESPN, which is also one of the drugs that removed Jon Jones from the main card — on the day of the fight.

When Hunt caught wind of the latest news, he took to Twitter to call Lesnar “cheating scum” and shot down the idea of a clean rematch because he believes there’s no point in fighting if “[Lesnar] has to cheat to compete.”

Hunt has been very outspoken during the entire process. With Lesnar taking home a record-breaking $2.5 million for the fight, Hunt demanded all of Lesnar’s paycheck because, in his words, “#cheatersdeservenada.” Hunt has also called for a fighters’ association in wake of this debacle and has requested a release from the UFC if they don’t find a solution to the problem.
