"Dana White u [sic] peice of shit motherf**er why u fuckers pull me from the fight u getting another lawsuit u f***wit u can kiss my ass u bald headed prick u put that chicken shit bitch in get fucked co*****er", Hunt's first post read.

If you recall, Hunt recently wrote a passionate testimonial for the Players Voice, and he detailed some of the health problems that have been plaguing him due to his nearly 20 years of professional MMA and kickboxing. On Tuesday, Ultimate Fighting Championship officials confirmed that Hunt had been removed from main event slot after the promotion became aware of a recent article the heavyweight contender wrote for Australia's Players Voice last month in which the 2001 K-1 World Grand Prix champion admitted that he had been suffering from worrying signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

The Daily Telegraph reported that UFC officials reviewed the article where Hunt spoke about the consequences he's paid in his long fighting career.

"Like his memory loss, things like that, it's all gonna get worse, and I understand some fighters wanna fight it out to the bitter end, and Mark Hunt is probably a prime example of that".

Prior to the bout, Hunt had said he knew Lesnar would come into the fight 'juiced to the gills, ' but then reacted rather surprised when it was found that he actually was to the point of suing him and his employer.

'The truth is the legal case I have filed has caused me to be withdrawn.

"Sometimes I don't sleep well", he said. "I'll forget something I did yesterday but I can remember the s-- I did years and years ago". My memory is not that good anymore.

Hunt filed a civil lawsuit against the UFC in January after Lesnar failed two doping tests following their bout previous year.

The article the statement is referring to appeared in The Players Voice recently, and in the article, Hunt claimed he's "starting to stutter and slur my words".

"Athlete health and safety is of the utmost importance to the organisation and it would never knowingly schedule an athlete complaining of health issues for a fight". Stepping in to face Marcin Tybura at the event will be former champion (and Hunt nemesis) Fabricio Werdum.

He now has legal proceedings against the UFC and Dana White in relation to his UFC 200 bout opposite Brock Lesnar in July a year ago.
