AAAAAARRRRRGHHHH!!!: Mark Hunt Arrested in New Zealand, Visa Denied for UFC 160 Bout With Junior Dos Santos [UPDATED]

(Yep. That pretty much sums it up.) 

God. Damn. It.

Although details are sketchy at best right now, it appears that UFC heavyweight contender/future champion Mark Hunt has been arrested in his native New Zealand and has consequently been denied the Visa that would allow him to fly to Las Vegas, kick Junior Dos Santos’ ass on May 25th, and secure the next shot at Cain Velasquez. The information was passed along by none other than Hunt himself via his Twitter account. Caution: the following contains several naughty words and a noticeable absence of the letter “c.”

Well thanks to a idiot friend of mine I did get arrested. Denied again at airport I’m never helping anymore dikhead mates. This is wat happens wen u have friends that are dikheads the last fukn time I help these mother fkn trouble makers. 

New Zealand: It’s pretty much Stockton, CA with nicer summers.

Although Dana White was only willing to grant JDS a title shot with a win over Hunt and not the other way around, the loss of this fight would be incalculable to the UFC 160 card. Ever since Hunt volunteered to step in for Alistair Overeem against a then-champion Dos Santos last year, fans have been rallying to see this matchup between hard-hitting heavyweights. With yet another squash match headlining the card, expect to see DW go into full-on Jeremy Stephens mode to try and ensure that this co-main event somehow happens. If he doesn’t, UFC 160 will forever be known as “the event those f*cking Kiwi cops killed.”

As for Junior? Well, it appears that his bad luck streak with opponents will continue. Unless Todd Duffee is feeling up to the challenge.

We will keep you informed as details are made available.


Oh thank Science. According to Ariel Helwani, Hunt’s visa was delayed in relation to a prior arrest in 2002, but the UFC has already been made aware of the issue and are currently ensuring that we see a Hunt/Dos Santos co-main come May 25th. This should put our minds at ease until Dos Santos goes down with a knee injury next week. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.

The UFC just announced it will match New Zealands GDP to grant the visa.
Dana White was seen buying 22 sheep and a really cool looking coral necklace to ship over.

Overheard on the airport loudspeakers, "Mah Cunt, please report to the police. Mah Cunt, please report to the police."

Hey, Mark, buddy, can you carry this briefcase for me to the US? Someone will meet you at the airport, just give it to him.

I hate to see Hunt lose out over some petty shit. But what about Travis Browne? Throw him in there with the big dogs. Kind of a lose lose for JDS no matter what happens. As a fan, I just want Cain-JDS III.

What did he help these dikheads do, move a body?

Wasn't Roy Nelson saying he'd like to get his ass kicked by JDS again? I say let him have at it.
