His place will be taken by former heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, who'll be making a swift return to action following his win against Walt Harris last weekend.

Mark Hunt has accused Dana White of a hidden agenda after the heavyweight was pulled from the UFC Sydney fight card. "UFC mentioned they didn't feel comfortable because of the statements he made still and would like more tests done so Mark wasn't able to go forward with the fight in Sydney, unfortunately". "But I've fought a lot of drug cheats and copped a lot of punishment from guys who were cheating and that's not right".

Kiwi fighter Mark Hunt has been pulled from the upcoming UFC event in Australia following recent confessions that he had been slurring his words and suffering severe memory lapses.

"This is what I'm supposed to be doing and if I die fighting, that's fine", Hunt told Players Voice.

"Sometimes I don't sleep well".

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". My memory is not that good anymore.

"I have passed all medicals two days ago and spent $100,000 on camp".

Hunt's showdown with Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva may rank among the very best heavyweight fights the sport has ever seen and several of his big-name knockouts could easily be cited as at least contenders for Knockout of the Year honours in their respective years.

A UFC official said he was removed from UFC 121 as a precaution.

Hunt has always spoken up about his differences with the UFC.

"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. The organization will require that Hunt undergo further testing and evaluations prior to competing in any future UFC bout".

The veteran fighter then took to social media to vent his frustration at the UFC chief teling him to "kiss my a** you bald-headed p**ck" and called him a "c**ksucker". Hunt was brutally knocked out by fellow former K-1 World Grand Prix champion Alistair Overeem this past May but rebounded in his hometown of Auckland in June, stopping Derrick Lewis in a four-round slugfest.
