Despite Mark Hunt’s well documented, legal issues with the UFC, and the fact he’s publicly said he intends to go elsewhere, the promotion thanked the legend following the final fight on his contract.

The feared slugger took on Justin Willis at UFC Adelaide last night but was outscored by the rising heavyweight, and lost via decision. After the bout, the UFC’s social media channels shared out the message below.

Hunt has said that he plans to fight several more times, in another organization, before the 44-year-old hangs up the gloves.
