Hunt Explains Legal Issues Causing Visa Problems


“Just a stupid incident which happened in 2002. It wasn’t even my fault, but as usual, I get canned for it. I should be fine by today. UFC is on it.”

“A friend of mine punched another friend outside a club. Another guy said to me that they needed help. I went out to see what had happened. I see that these two losers were pissed [drunk]. I try to go back in the club and an undercover cop said I wasn’t allowed. I said, Can I just go back in to get my girl? He says, no. I ask him again, he says, I’ll tell you one more time you’re under arrest. Guess what? I ask again, he flicks his baton; I get upset.

“So, he has his baton in his left hand, and I walk up to him. He maces me with his right hand, and they jump me. I wasn’t even drunk. I spent New Year’s in jail for public intoxication, and I wasn’t even drunk.”

The past 24-48 hours for UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt have been frustrating.

Scheduled to face former UFC Heavyweight champion, Junior dos Santos, in two-weeks, he is unable to enter the country due to visa issues.

In this quick quote from MMAFighting.com he explains the legal issues back in 2002 that are preventing his entry into the U.S.
