Mark Hunt’s Visa Has Been Approved, Headed to The USA For UFC 160

UFC heavyweight, Mark Hunt announced today that his visa issues are behind him and he’s headed to America to fight in UFC 160 where he will face Junior dos Santos in the co-main event of the evening this Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Hunt tweeted on Sunday:

“Thank u for my visa father.”

UFC officials confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that Hunt got his visa and should be leaving New Zealand sometime on Monday to fly to the United States.

Hunt is coming off a four-fight winning streak inside the octagon defeating Chris Tuchscherer, Ben Rothwell, Cheick Kongo and Stefan Struve during that time. That’s a far-cry from the six-fight losing streak he was on prior to that which saw him fight under the PRIDE and DREAM banners.
