The UFC is not as confident about Mark Hunt as originally reported

How else do you explain this:

Roy Nelson has been asked by the UFC to apply for a license to fight Junior dos Santos at UFC 160 in the co-Main Event. This was reported by Ariel Helwani on the latest installment of UFC Tonight.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission will discuss Nelson’s application for a license at a hearing on Friday.

Hunt’s visa issues apparently stem from an arrest, which is bad. But that arrest was like ten years ago, which is good. Unfortunately, it seems to have been dragged back up. That’s bad. But the UFC is on it! Which is good! And if it doesn’t work out, Roy Nelson will get that rematch with Junior Dos Santos everyone is clamoring for. Ha, just kidding. That’d be bad. Better than no fight at all, but still bad.

    I feel like I literally just watched Dos Santos deliver a massive beating to Nelson like less than a year ago…

    ^ Actually it’s over 2.5 years ago now, but yeah.
