Mark Hunt Cleared To Fly To U.S., UFC 160 Fight With Junior Dos Santos A Go

Mark Hunt will make his way to Las Vegas and Saturday’s UFC 160 card after all, as “The Super Samoan” was granted his visa to travel to the U.S. late last week.

Hunt had been stuck in New Zealand awaiting clearance to fly from the country. He set a self-imposed deadline for obtaining his visa early last week, but the UFC continued to work hard to help get him on a plane.

Hunt will be trying to move his way closer to a potential UFC heavyweight title fight when he faces former champion Junior dos Santos in the co-main event.
