    Default Mark Hunt denied boarding on US-bound flights due to visa issues, recent arrest


    Tweets of the day: Mark Hunt denied boarding on US-bound flights due to visa issues, recent arrest

    Mark Hunt has been unable to fly to the US to prepare for his upcoming UFC 160 bout with Junior dos Santos. He has been keeping a running commentary on twitter as to the reasons why, which involve visa issues and a recent arrest.

    Mark Hunt has had a lot of things go right for him over the past couple of years. A four-fight winning streak has him in what amounts to a number one contender bout with Junior dos Santos at UFC 160 on May 25th. But Hunt's luck hasn't been so good over the past few days - he has been unable to fly to the US to start preparing for the bout, being denied entry onto two different flights for two very different reasons and ending up stuck in New Zealand. Hunt has been keeping a running commentary of his issues on twitter, and the reason he was denied entry on the first flight was apparently because he didn't have a visa:

    I sure hope this fight happens.. UFC has gotta be able to pull some strings or a black op snatching..

    But Mark seems to need to learn about acceptance of responsibility. A grown ass man does not get arrested because of someone else, Mark got himself arrested.

    That would be nice get him over here, but our luck they'd arrest him at the weigh inns with over 100 ilegal immagrates watching in the crowd

    While I'd be sad about not seeing Hunt in action, I'd actually really dig that replacement.

    Uh Oh....Not good.. But DC would be a great replacement, but to short notice DC is smarter than that.
    Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.

    I'm not sure.

    I'm sure they trained exhaustively for JDS when Cain fought him.
