Mark Hunt is mad at the UFC and Brock Lesnar and that apparently is not going to change.

Hunt blasted the UFC for allegedly condoning "cheating," in an extended interview with The New Zealand Herald.

"At the end of the day he's trying to kill me, by enhancing himself," Hunt said.

Hunt lost a unanimous decision to Lesnar at UFC 200. Lesnar failed two performance enhancement drug tests, one taken before the fight and one the night of, a twist that stunned the UFC.

Hunt has been upset ever since, demanding that the UFC take PEDs more seriously.

"They are condoning cheating. They are condoning drug use," Hunt said in the interview.

Hunt said other fighters are angry, but don't want to speak up.

"I don't care about money," Hunt said. "It's about what is right."

Hunt said the fine for using PEDs should be "criminal courts" or "lifetime bans."

Hunt has fought three fighters recently, Frank Mir, Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva and Lesnar, who tested positive for PEDS.

"I went into the business thinking it was a level playing field," Hunt said.

Hunt said a fighter who dopes should be put in "criminal court."

"What they are trying to do is kill someone," Hunt said. "It is a matter of time before someone perishes because of this."

Hunt said unless the UFC does something dramatic to change the sport "you probably won't see me fight in the UFC again."

He said the top fighters are just "crooks."

"At the end of the day they are all cheating," Hunt said.
