Schaub: Hunt should be able to take 'whatever he wants' for Lesnar fight

Brendan Schaub thinks the whole Brock Lesnar/USADA situation is "fishy", and believes Mark Hunt should be able to show up juiced to the gills for their UFC 200 fight.

While he's not currently a competitor in the UFC at the moment, heavyweight Brendan Schaub could possibly come back one day. And if he did, he would have to let them know at least four months beforehand so he could be entered in the USADA testing pool. So when Brock Lesnar was allowed to be exempt from this process ahead of his UFC 200 bout with Mark Hunt, Schaub told his co-hosts on The Fighter and the Kid podcast that the situation looked 'fishy' (transcribed by MMA Mania):

"He (Lesnar) could have gotten off of them, and tailored off. Now he can fight and be clean. So I'm retired and let's say they want me to fight; I have to give the drug testing sanction, body a four-month heads up like, 'Hey, I am thinking about fighting.' They will be like 'Okay, you have four months where we are going to test you and you got to be clean.' He skipped all of that and now he only has four weeks where they can test him. Does no one think this is fishy? Hey man, you can't do that."

He also thinks that Hunt should be given some special permissions in light of this:

"Mark Hunt should be able to take whatever he wants. Mark Hunt should come juiced to the gills and look like f**king Chong Li from Blood sport with traps from here to here. F**k you!"

He then re-iterated that the Lesnar situation didn't look too good:

"So maybe six months ago he told Dana, 'Hey man I want to fight.' And Dana was like, 'Cool, well listen you know there is that four-month window.' And he'll say, 'Okay, let's see how we can work around this,' If this doesn't signal to every human being in the world that he's probably on stuff."

Well, he certainly didn't pull any punches with that. Lesnar and Hunt will compete in the co-main event of UFC 200 on July 9th.
