I'm well aware of that, Junior can't fight premonitions though, somebody's gotta get in the cage.

I'd rather they pull him from the card then give him some BS replacement or someone he has already dominated. Someone give Fedor a ring.

Makes sense to pull him but I doubt Dana or Junior like that option very much

Shit happens. They should just pull Bigfoot and give JDS the title shot. More interesting fight.

I wonder if Junior would take that. UFC probably wouldn't go for it because they need to hype up a big tie-breaker like that to maximize the buys.

Damon Martin ?@DamonMartin
So here's the deal with Mark Hunt's travel issues - he's been delayed getting into the U.S. but it will get resolved soon (cont)

Damon Martin ?@DamonMartin
He tweeted about an arrest - according to my sources this was an incident around 10 years ago, bar scuffle, he was never charged (cont)

Damon Martin ?@DamonMartin
But U.S. Customs and border patrol are being extra cautious right now because of the Boston bombings. Just a delay, he will get here soon.

Hopefully he's correct and it's just a short delay. I need to see that fight.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Mark Hunt wasn't arrested recently and his fight with JDS isn't currently in jeopardy. A 2002 legal issue has delayed his entry into ...... The US and he is expected to be cleared to enter the country shortly. UFC is aware of the issue and helping him out.
Good news.
