Let the good times roll for heavyweight warrior Mark Hunt. Following his all out brawl with Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Hunt would earn a $50,000 bonus for fight of the night honors. Then the news of Silva failing his drug test came back last night. By the UFC’s terms – because of Silva’s failed test, Hunt now gets the $50,000 originally given to Silva. That makes a whopping $100,000 in bonus money for “The Super Samoan. ” Here’s what Hunt told MMAJunkie when he learned of the news of his bonus bump.
“I haven’t heard anything…Hell yeah!”
Hunt responds on his thoughts of his opponent caught with elevated levels.
“S–t, I need to get on some of this s–t. F–k, I don’t know how these guys are doing this s–t. I should get some of that s–t, too.”
“That’s news to me. I haven’t heard anything of it. I don’t know what to say, honestly. I don’t know what it is, but kudos to me for the bonus, eh?”
