Mark Hunt Calls Out Dana White, Fertitta Brothers After Being Ordered To Pay Nearly $400K
Former UFC heavyweight contender Mark Hunt challenged UFC President Dana White and the Fertitta brothers to a 3-on-1 fight after being ordered to pay nearly $400,000.
The order is in legal fees, stemming from his ongoing legal battle with the UFC. The United States District Court ordered Hunt to pay $388,235 in attorney fees and costs to his former employer, court documents stated.
Not too long after news of the ruling got around, Hunt took to social media to refute. He challenged White and former UFC executives Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta.

“Mark the super Samoan vs Dana the parasite white Lorenzo Fertita and frank fertita,” Hunt wrote.
“5 rounds mma these losers @danawhite frank Fertita Lorenzo Fertita has sucked the life out of so many fighters him and his scum friends -u win I drop the law suit-I win u pay every fighter u have ripped off since @ufc started now who would pay to see that”
The former fighter said if the three men beat him, he will drop the remainder of his lawsuit, but if he wins, the UFC must pay every fighter that’s been “ripped off.”
The court is ordering Hunt to pay the $388,235 after a judge in the case granted UFC parent Zuffa’s request for the attorney fees.
The legal conflict started in 2017 after Hunt fought Brock Lesnar at UFC 20 in July 2016. Lesnar won via unanimous decision, but it was later overturned to no-contest by the Nevada Athletic Commission after Lesnar was found positive for clomiphene in both in-and out-of-competition tests.
Hunt claimed that the UFC knew about the results and purposely hid it. He filed a RICO lawsuit against Zuffa and the UFC, alleging multiple claims including conspiracy to commit a crime, fraud, breach of contract and more.
The legal fee breakdown is: $301,792.50 in attorneys’ fees and $86,442.72 in costs totaling $388,235.22 for Hunt.
