Brock Lesnar walked away from his fight with Mark Hunt with a $2.5 million dollar purse only to be flagged by USADA for a potential doping violation less than a week later.

Hunt told multiple sources he wants half of Lesnar's record breaking purse or wants the UFC to release him from his contract.

"If you don't give me half of his [expletive] I'm walking away from this company," he said on UFC on FOX Friday night. "I want out of here."

Hunt says this is not the first time he's been faced with this same situation. He mentioned prior fights with Antonio Silva and Frank Mir. Both who were flagged for violations following their bouts with Hunt.

"The cheaters get a slap on the wrist and walk off," Hunt told MMA Fighting. "What penalty or deterrent is there to make them think twice? Nothing. And the [Nevada Athletic Commission], why should these [expletive] get anything? They are not the ones who had to fight with Lesnar or lose [to him]. I lost."

Hunt even alleged that Lesnar was not clean prior to the fight.

"I'm lucky I didn't get injured in that fight," Hunt said on UFC on Fox.

The pair met at UFC 200 where Lesnar won via decision in the three round co-main event.
