UFC issues classy farewell to Mark Hunt after UFC Adelaide loss

UFC issued a classy farewell to Mark Hunt following UFC Fight Night 142, which from all appearances seems to be his final octagon bout.

Hunt (13-14-1 MMA, 8-8-1 UFC) concluded his UFC contract on Saturday with a unanimous-decision loss to Justin Willis (8-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 142, which took place at Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, Australia and aired on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

“The Super Samoan,” who is still in an ongoing legal dispute with the UFC over Brock Lesnar’s drug-test failure at UFC 200 in July 2017, has made no secret that he was ready to part ways with the company as soon as he fought out his deal. Hunt made that even more clear post-fight, telling fans that he’ll see them “somewhere else” going forward.

Hunt’s dissatisfaction with the UFC over the years did not stop the promotion from offering a send-off to the heavyweight legend, though. At the conclusion of UFC Fight Night 142, the organization posted a farewell video on social media (via Instagram):
