On Tuesday, Emil Meek revealed via Twitter that he was having “visa issues”, which could potentially put his upcoming welterweight clash with Kamaru Usman in jeopardy.

In a series of text messages sent to MMA Fighting, “Valhalla” elaborated on his initial tweet regarding the visa trouble. According to the Norwegian, UFC’s legal team is trying to secure a waiver that would allow him to obtain the visa quicker.

Meek is scheduled to face Usman at UFC 219 on Dec. 30. If he is not able to secure a waiver to speed up the process, he will be unable to contest the bout, which he described as “the kind of fight I live for” in a recent interview.
