Australian fighter Symbol Hunt has questioned the UFC’s decision to waive Brock Lesnar’s medication test before their UFC 200 showdown.

Lesnar’s challenger at next month’s ufc 200 event has launched a scathing strike on the WWE superstar after he was awarded an exemption from medication testing.

Hunt is furious within the UFC’s decision, declaring that the 38-year-old from South Dakota, USA, is “juiced to the gills.”

The other day, Lesnar arrived of his four-and-a-half yr mixed fighting techinques hiatus to consent to co-headline the UFC’s landmark 200th event with Jon Jones versus Daniel Cormier II on Sunday July 9 at the T-Mobile Area in NEVADA, Nevada.

Usually four calendar months’ notice is necessary for drug evaluation under the UFC’s anti-doping plan guidelines, governed by america Anti-Doping Company (USADA).

However, the guidelines do allow an exemption to get at the UFC’s discretion “in exceptional circumstances or where in fact the strict application of this guideline would be manifestly unjust to an sportsman.”

It has prompted an hostile response from Lesnar’s opposition, with Make Hunt expressing:

“I don’t believe that’s fair. I believe it’s insert of bulls***, I believe it’s rubbish,” Hunt informed UFC Combat WEEK on Fox Sports activities within an exclusive interview.

“I don’t believe anyone should be exempt from tests. If they’re seeking to clean the activity up – merged fighting techinques – this is a poor way to do it. I don’t care and attention who you are. It’s absurd.

“I don’t believe from the great move. I believe he’s juiced to the gills – and I still think I’ll knock him out. THEREFORE I don’t believe that’s appropriate. I don’t believe he should be permitted to get a four-month exemption usually everybody else should. Usually I will start juicing.

“How will you clean the activity up doing that s***? It will not happen. I don’t believe it’s fair.

“I’ve already voiced my judgment to [UFC supervisor] Dana [White] about any of it but evidently he [Lesnar] has been getting analyzed but he’s probably been off several cycles anyhow.”

The UFC released a assertion to marketing organizations saying that Lesnar’s extended spell from the UFC and that he only agreed upon a package to combat at UFC 200 on Fri contributed to your choice to waive the four-month notice guideline.

Since Dec 2011 lesnar hasn’t stepped in to the UFC cage, when he lost a name eliminator against Alistair Overeem with a first-round TKO.

Hunt, 42, supports an MMA record of 12-10-1, and minds into UFC 200 pursuing back-to-back victories over Antonio Silva and Frank Mir with a TKO and KO respectively, both in the first circular.

The grappler continues to be authorized with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and is also expected to go back to the squared group prior to the end of the entire year. The athletics entertainment company could face criticism off the trunk of the UFC’s decision to waive the wrestler’s medicine test as the WWE itself has been scrutinized over time as it pertains to its players and drugs.
