Mairbek Taisumov announces that it is out of UFC 223 due to visa problems

In what already has become a chronic problem for him, a prospect austrian will not be able to compete in the united States by bureaucracy matters. Through its account of Instagram, Mairbek Taisumov has announced that it is out of his fight against Evan Dunham at UFC 223 for a delay in your application for american visa. The meeting was going to be part of the preliminary televised billboard, to be held on the seventh of April at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The process of visa “Beckan” is still pending and has not been refused a visa.

Disappointing news – My visa application for the united States is taking more of what my team and the UFC were expecting. The process is still in progress but at a slower pace than anticipated. I hope that Shelby can find me a fight in Rio de Janeiro on the 12th of may and I hope to be able to fight in the united States as soon as possible. Thanks to Evan Dunham who agreed to fight with me, not like many other of the top 15. I wish you a good fight in Brooklyn and I will be ready to give a fight whether in Rio or when my visa process is completed.

Taisumov already had to withdraw from UFC Fight Night 81 in January of 2016, and UFC 203 in September of the same year due to visa problems. Outside of these problems, the only misstep of the combative 29-year-old was a defeat by unanimous decision against Michel Prazeres in march 2014, and since then the austrian has scored a streak of five consecutive victories by knockout or technical knockout.
