Mark Hunt may be the new headliner at UFC 200 in his heavyweight bout against Brock Lesnar at UFC 200 this weekend but the Kiwi born fighter is taking it all in his stride.
The ‘Super Samoan’ completed a workout in front of a packed out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas earlier today. Donning a sweat suit under his clothes Hunt admitted that he still has a few kilos left to drop before weigh-ins tomorrow thanks to too much cheesecake in between fights.
Hunt also addressed the Jon Jones alleged doping incident, which saw Jones removed from the card, stating only that he was disappointed for DC (Daniel Cormier) but still very much “down to party.”
Full open workout video and interview below:
Aussie prospects Jake Matthews and Anton Zafir, who will compete on the TUF 23 Finale card on Saturday AEST, officially made their respective weights. Their opponents Kevin Lee and Li Jingliang also made weight.
Matthews was all smiles in his face-off with new opponent Lee in what will be the biggest test of his young career.
