I didn't read the posts before. You guys know he's not winning this right? Brock Lesnar's return broke no rules, he passed the required tests before the fight and then was allowed to do the fight. The entire court case is based on "They knew he was on steroids", which imo is also a bit stupid but even still, that's not concrete evidence.

Yeah this may flop but looking at the class action lawsuit that still has a chance of getting passed.

This is kind of like...

An employee at wal mart making $12 an hour.

Trying to sue the CEO of wal mart who makes $30 million a year.

If Hunt can't feed his family being paid $700,000 per his last fight by the UFC.

I don't know if he'll survive on what bellator or another organization can pay him.

It'll be interesting to see if this was a smart move by Hunt.

Or if Hunt has been listening to the bad advice of crackheads who don't know what they're talking about.

I'm no expert but I watched enough daytime TV judge Judy -type programs and I think he is in with a very good chance of winning. He's got a very simple argument which can be easily understood.

Usually the civil game (other than small claims) is all about who has more money and better lawyers. My guess is Hunt's lawyers will go broke and eventually settle or the case will get thrown out.

Keep in mind,this is civil. There is no "Beyond a reasonable doubt" here... simply a burdon of proof which is much less than what a jury would consider.

Remember that sometimes civil cases can involve juries.

I was thinking if Hunt's lawyers thought Hunt had good chances of winning they would have taken the case asking for a percentage of Hunt's settlement from the UFC rather than their normal hourly rate.

Some of the things Hunt said, like him saying he should have got all of Brock Lesnar's paycheck, I disagree with.

If this lawsuit comes from the same place as Hunt saying anyone who tests positive should forfeit their entire paycheck, I would guess Hunt will lose the case.

No. I get why Mark is upset a little. But the thing is before the fight Hunt was saying Brock was all juiced up. In the court papers he is saying without his knowledge but he was saying Brock was juiced before the fight. He said it in interviews and when they do the guest speaker at UFC events. So he knew Brock was juiced before and still chose to sign the contract and fight him. If he never said he knew he was juicing then he would have more of a case but he was bitching about it before the fight even happened.
