Emil Meek: Kamaru Usman bout is ‘not looking very bright’ due to visa issues
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.
