Visa Issues May Kill UFC Fight Night 70 For Several Fighters

June 18, 2015 9:00 am by BJPENN.COM News


This could really screw things up for UFC Fight Night 70, which takes place in 9 days.

Turns out the U.S. visa system is currently down, due to technical issues and that means international fighters on next weekends card might not be able to get travel visas.

The U.S. State Department says that the system will most likely not be up until next week.

The event was first scheduled to take place in Brazil, but the UFC changed the location to Florida. The card is scheduled to feature a main event between Lyoto Machida and Yoel Romero, as well as the finals for TUF: Brazil 4.

We will keep you up to date on any changes to the card, if any.
