Dana White: Pulling Mark Hunt from UFC Sydney Was to Protect Him from Himself

UFC President Dana White told TMZ Sports on Thursday the company decided to remove Mark Hunt from its event in Sydney next month as a medical precaution.

I'll forget something I did yesterday but I can remember the s--t I did years and years ago.

That’s just the price I've paid—the price of being a fighter."

Citing medical concerns, UFC announced Tuesday that Hunt had been removed from the card in Sydney, according to ESPN.com's Brett Okamoto.

In January, the New Zealand native filed a civil lawsuit against White, UFC and Brock Lesnar after Lesnar failed drug tests following a unanimous-decision victory over Hunt at UFC 200.
