Fabricio Werdum steps in for Mark Hunt at UFC Sydney

UFC officials announced the news on Tuesday.

The article the statement is referring to appeared in The Players Voice recently, and in the article, Hunt claimed he's "starting to stutter and slur my words".

"Like his memory loss, things like that, it's all gonna get worse, and I understand some fighters wanna fight it out to the bitter end, and Mark Hunt is probably a prime example of that".

"I just hope that if it does happen, it will be in an honest and fair competition".

The straight talker pulled no punches on Instagram this morning, threatening to sue the UFC and describing White as a "bald-headed prick".

"I'm disappointed that I have been withdrawn from the fight", Hunt said. "I'll forget something I did yesterday but I can remember the s-- I did years and years ago".

'The truth is the legal case I have filed has caused me to be withdrawn. The interview has been taken out of context and want to reassure all my fans, I slur my words only when I have a drink. Lesnar failed multiple drugs tests that were taking around the time of the fight, but took a few weeks until afterwards for the results to come back.

Gervais man accused of manslaughter following five-fatality crash
Molalla woman and her four young children were killed Sunday in head-on collision with oncoming vehicle on Hwy. Her children included an eight-year-old boy, a six-year-old boy, a four-year-old girl and a two-year-old girl.

Miesha Tate says UFC veteran Mark Hunt is too tough for his own good and should consider retiring before sustaining any more damage.

Hunt's manager also released this statement: "UFC mentioned they were concerned with Mark's health based on his previous interview with mentioning slight health issues".

"The organization will require that Hunt undergo further testing and evaluations prior to competing in any future UFC bout", an unnamed UFC official told Australia's Daily Telegraph newspaper.

To add insult to injury, Hunt has been replaced by Brazilian former heavyweight world champion, Fabricio Wedrum.

Hunt's relationship with the UFC has been strained in recent times as a result of the failed out-of-competition drug test taken by his UFC 200 opponent Brock Lesnar, following his mauling at the hands of the WWE superstar previous year.

But a furious Hunt insists he has been cleared to fight by doctors and believes the real reason behind his removal is his current legal battle against the UFC, president Dana White and former opponent Brock Lesnar.
