Quick, get another UFC heavyweight on standby!



Uh oh.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight slugger Mark Hunt can earn himself a title shot if he's able to put away Junior dos Santos in the co main event of UFC 160, which takes place on May 25, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

But first he's got to get there.

He's still tweeting (see his timeline here), so that's a good sign.

With fight night just over two weeks away, Hunt was arrested in New Zealand thanks to some "dickhead" friends he was apparently trying to help. In addition, his visa was denied for his outbound flight to "Sin City," which means he's currently stranded overseas.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

So... I wonder if Cormier could step up in the worst case scenario that Hunt can't make it.

Don't think Cormier can do it, last month

"Daniel Cormier: suspended 180 days with 180 days no contact or until cleared by physician for swollen right middle finger"

so who's left? Travis Browne, Roy Nelson?
