At least that’s what MMAWeekly.com reported this Tuesday afternoon.
According to the website, the UFC tried everything but could not untangle Mustapha Al-Turk’s U.S.visa predicament, and Rolles Gracie arrives in Las Vegas tomorrow morning already knowing who his new opponent will be.
Interestingly, the English fighter is from a prominent family in the United Kingdom and fought for the first time in the UFC precisely in Las Vegas, and has no prior history of problems with the U.S. embassy.
Also according to MMAWeekly.com, he should next fight at the April-10 event in Abu Dhabi.
California’s Joey “The Mexicutioner” Beltran comes out of nowhere to make his UFC debut and protect his ten-win, three-loss record. The possibility of Beltran replacing Al-Turk was first reported by MMAJunkie.com.
