Mark Hunt Arrested In New Zealand Visa Denied

Mark Hunt has been unsuccessful in his efforts to get to Las Vegas for his big fight against former champ Junior Dos Santos.  Mark’s fight at UFC 160 is a little over two weeks away and due to some “dikhead friends” he was trying to help he was arrested in New Zealand.  Here is what the Super Samoan had to say via his Twitter Page

Let’s hope that Hunt can get this situation figured out and make it to Vegas sooner rather than later.  Can’t help but feel for JDS here as he was set to fight his rival Alistair Overeem but Overeem was forced to pull out due to an injury.  Hunt was a replacement fight and still a good match up for the Brazilian.  Dana White has said that with a win JDS would be granted a title shot next.  That being said if Hunt is unable to figure out his visa and make the fight a late replacement would definitely hurt the co main event’s status as a number contender fight.  With two weeks time I am confident the UFC and Dana White can handle this and that the fight will go on as scheduled.
