Mark Hunt Feels Entitled To All Of Brock Lesnar's Purse Following His Positive PED Test
If you're asking me if Mark Hunt has the right to feel cheated after unknowingly stepping in the octagon with someone that had a little bit more than his natural ability at his disposal then the answer is yes, he probably does. Demanding to be compensated even more than he already has been for being on the receiving end of an ass kicking that was so lopsided that it made one of the most highly anticipated PPV's in MMA history hardly watchable seems a bit disingenuous, but - on the surface - it does seem like he has a point. You know, until you look at the surface area of the guy that he voluntarily agreed to compete against.
You see, the reason why I take Mark Hunt's complaining with a grain of salt is the same reason I think Barry Bonds should have his own display in Cooperstown. Not because the use of PED's isn't an offense that should be taken seriously, but because we ALL actively ignored obvious warning signs from the people in question simply due to the fact that we enjoyed benefiting from their use. Mark Hunt pretending he didn't know that it was a distinct possibility that Brock Lesnar was unnaturally enhanced before engaging him in hand-to-hand combat is almost as ridiculous as Brock Lesnar claiming he didn't know that it was a distinct possibility that he was unnaturally enhanced.
We are talking about a guy that is nothing more than a quick dip in a pool of green paint away from being the living embodiment of 'The Incredible Hulk'. He could have tested negative for illegal substances every day from now until Dana White starts properly compensating his employees and I still wouldn't believe that Brock Lesnar's physique was created completely organically. I guess what I am trying to say is that Mark Hunt knew what he was getting himself into when he decided to fight a guy whose primary muscles are hidden under 3-4 more layers of muscles. You don't motorboat a stripper with perky double D's under the assumption that they're real, and you don't brawl with a guy that looks like he's on an all-baby diet under the assumption that he achieved that body solely by lifting weights and finishing his veggies. They should probably expunge the loss from his record, but you certainly don't get paid more money because you paid less attention.
