If you, alongside thousands of others, have been nervously waiting to see if Mark Hunt receives his visa so he can thrown down with Junior dos Santos Saturday at UFC 160, then you can let out a big sigh of relief. The New Zealand heavyweight, who was denied at the airport earlier this month when he attempted to fly out to Las Vegas for the fight, recently relayed on Twitter:

Thank u for my visa father

MMA Weekly.com also confirmed with UFC officials that the 39 year-old-heavyweight has indeed received his visa and is expected to fly out Monday. Of course, that might not give Hunt a lot of time to adjust to the time change and get used to the Nevada conditions, but hey, better late than never.

When Hunt was denied a visa earlier this month, the K-1 vet cited an incident in 2002 for the reason (helping “dikhead mates”) but claimed he was innocent of any wrong doing. The feared striker has competed in the U.S. several times since 2002.

If Hunt pulls off the upset at UFC 160, to record his fifth straight win, the PRIDE vet will likely be tapped for a title shot. Should be a doozy of a fight.
