It's been widely published that Mark Hunt has been struggling to enter the U.S. to get to Nevada for his upcoming fight against former Heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos at UFC 160. A 2002 arrest lead to the United States denying Hunt his work visa for his upcoming fight. Throughout the difficult both Hunt and the UFC remained calm about the situation saying that it was only a matter of time before the New Zealander made it to America.
With less than a week before the event, it looks like "The Super Samoan" has finally been cleared:
