Mark Hunt Files Civil Suit Against Dana White, UFC, Brock Lesnar After Failed Drug Tests

MMA fighter Mark Hunt has "filed a civil suit" against UFC, President Dana White and Brock Lesnar after Lesnar failed multiple drug tests around their July fight at UFC 200, according to Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com. The suit alleges the defendants "affirmatively circumvented and obstructed fair competition for their own benefit." It accuses the parties of "racketeering ... and fraud, among other allegations." Hunt is "seeking financial relief for damages, both physical and to his overall brand." Hunt has been "publicly upset" since it was revealed Lesnar failed multiple drug tests. Hunt: "They're allowing guys to do this. They had a chance to take all the money from this guy, because he's a cheater, and they didn't." Hunt's attorney, Christina Denning, said he is seeking damages "in the millions" (ESPN.com, 1/11).
