Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight star Mark Huntis not too happy with the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) over the punishment handed over to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar Brock Lesnar after he was found guilty of failing multiple drug tests.
Earlier this week, Lesnar was suspended by the NAC for one year and fined $250,000 (£200,200) after he had been found guilty of failing multiple drug tests. In addition to his fine and suspension, Lesnar's win over Hunt was overturned to a no contest.
The 39-year-old made a successful comeback beating Hunt by a unanimous 29-27, 29-27, 29-28 decision at UFC 200. Shortly after his win it was revealed that Lesnar had failed both an out-of-competition and in-competitiontest administered by the USADA (US Anti-Doping Agency).
Hunt though was not happy with the decision claiming that the punishment was not harsh enough.
"It's not harsh enough considering he gets the same punishment as Jon Jones and Jones didn't fight. Would that penalty have sufficed if I died or been maimed?" said Hunt, as quoted by Bloody Elbow.
Former Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones too tested for the same anti-estrogen agent that Lesnar was found guilty of and was immediately removed from his headlining event at UFC 200 against Daniel Cormier. That such action was not taken against Lesnar was due to the fact that his results only came out after his fight with the Samoan.
The 42-year-old fighter has hit out at the use of performance enhancing drugs in the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in the past and has a reason to do so considering that three of his opponents in Lesnar, Frank Mir and Antonio Silva have all tested positive for intake of banned substances.
The Samoan, who is currently ranked number seven in the heavyweight division, wanted compensation from the company over the issue and had demanded half of Lesnar's purse from the fight claiming that he fought someone who had an illegal advantage over him.
