UFC confident Hunt's visa issues will be resolved

Dave Sholler, UFC Director of Communications, said on tonight’s media call:

 “This isn’t the first time we’ve had a visa issue or a travel issues. Our team is working through the issue and we’re confident Mark will be making his way to the U.S. this weekend.” 

 “We’re pretty confident that he’s going to get out of there by this weekend. As for a Plan B, we haven’t even gotten to that point because we’re confident this situation is going to get worked out. As of right now, the UFC 160 co-main event is Junior dos Santos vs. Mark Hunt.” 

 Hunt was also on the call and spoke about the pitfalls of the delay. :

 “I’m running out of time to acclimatize. I fought once in Vegas before. I went out four days before the fight and it was quite tiring. It was a bit of a problem.”
