When checking in at the Crown, a female receptionist asked the ‘Super Samoan’ was there any special reason behind his 5-star stay.

The big hitting Maori moved to prize fights after his illustrious MMA career, where he boxed Paul Gallen in December 2020 and made around $1million.
In his peak, Hunt was making near $350,000 for each fight in his UFC calendar around 2014.
Hunt is still fighting an ongoing lawsuit from a clash in 2016, where his opponent Brock Lesnar tested positive for banned substances following the bout.
Finishing his career with a 13-14-1 record, Hunt claims his final fight is to win the case against the UFC, where he alleged the corporation hid Lesnar’s results prior to the showdown.

When contacted by the Daily Mail Australia, Crown Towers stood by their decision to kick Hunt out after the vulgar language.
‘Crown takes a zero-tolerance approach toward harassment and is committed to creating a workplace for our employees and a venue for our patrons free of discrimination and harassment,’ said a Crown spokesperson.
