Yeah, he beat Bisping and Stann, two of the worst middleweights to ever grace the division. Everyone knows Anderson was just toying with Silva in their first fight anyways.

This was a decade old arrest and he has fought stateside 3 times since then so I doubt the UFC legal machine doesn't have him on a plane before tommorow night.

If JDS doesn't fight soon I'll lose my shit. I'm dying over here.


I don't care much for the Hunt fight, but it's better than no fight or an ill prepared late step in though by far. If Hunt doesn't make it maybe... wow there really is no one worthy besides guys like Browne or Stipe or something. Overeem should just "heal up" his undisclosed injury and fight Junior.

How will you feel if JDS gets KOed?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight contender Mark Hunt was indeed arrested as he posted on his official Twitter account today (May 9, 2013); however, the situation he spoke of went down well over a decade ago.

"The Super Samoan" stated via Twitter that he was having difficulties obtaining a visa to travel from his home country of New Zealand to the United States due to an arrest just a few weeks ahead of his UFC 160 showdown with Junior dos Santos at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The comments were worrisome, and from the wording of Hunt's initial statement, it sounded as if he had recently been detained and his upcoming fight with "Cigano" was in jeopardy.

Fortunately, the entire situation was a simple miscommunication and Hunt was actually referring to a 2002 arrest that raised some red flags for immigration officials and delayed the process of him receiving a visa to enter the U.S.

"I been arrested once in us in 2002," Hunt wrote on his official Twitter account. "It was some really really dumb two friends of mine fighting. UFC is on it should be flying out tonite."

According to Hunt's comments, UFC officials are aware of his current conundrum and are actively working to assist the 39-year-old and resolve any problems that will further delay his travels.

From all indications, the situation is not all that serious and Hunt vs. dos Santos at UFC 160 is seemingly not at any risk of falling through.
