"I just wasn't happy with some of the things that were getting done here," Hunt said of the UFC. "As an employee of a company, I shouldn't be treated the way I was being treated. I didn't think it was fair. Dana listened to what I had to say, which was pretty cool. I voiced my opinions about different things that I wasn't happy about, and now I'm [happy]."
"He said, ‘You know, I can't fix the problem if I don't what the problem is.' He's being pushed so many places because he's got a big company. But I said, 'you know, being the boss of the company should know what goes on.' I was happy he listened and then he fixed the problem," Hunt continued. "It was good. He's a good person. He listened to what I had to say and sorted it out, so it was fine."
Now that Hunt and White are back on the same page, the 38-year-old can put the focus back on his UFC 160 fight against Dos Santos, the former UFC heavyweight champ.
"I'm a pretty straight up person. And I'd told the truth," Hunt said, explaining that he never turned down the fight with Dos Santos. "What my thing is, I tell most of the time the truth, and sometimes it's good for me, sometimes it's bad. But, it's true. I don't turn down fights unless I'm injured. Never have. So it's a part of my makeup. Like I said, opportunities don't come that often, so you've got to take them when they come. I wasn't taking a dig at anyone. It was just the way I was voicing my opinion. That's the good thing about Twitter."
Hunt fights Dos Santos on May 25 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. Hunt, who fights at UFC 160, replaces the injured Alistair Overeem.
"Opportunities very rarely come, and as a fighter, fighting has come a second time around for me," Hunt said. "I won the world title already as a K-1 fighter. I lost interest in fighting and then mixed martial arts came. And this is just another opportunity for me to prove, to be a part of the best fighters in the league. Junior was the world champion before he lost to Cain (Velasquez), and the opportunity is here. I'm so amped about it. I'm so pumped."
