mark-hunt-stefan-struve.jpgUFC heavyweight contender Mark Hunt (9-7 MMA, 4-1 UFC) is having a few struggles traveling to the U.S. in advance of his UFC 160 bout with Junior dos Santos (15-2 MMA, 9-1 UFC), but “The Super Samoan” remains confident the bout will go on as planned.

“Denied again at airport,” Hunt wrote on Twitter. “I’m never helping anymore d—head mates.”

Earlier this week, Hunt revealed he was told he didn’t have the proper paperwork necessary to fly from his native New Zealand to the U.S., where he’s scheduled to meet dos Santos later this month. At the time, Hunt said he anticipated only a short delay while waiting for his passport to be shipped to him from Australia.

“Well wed is the day I’m out,” Hunt wrote on Monday. “Got to wait for my old passport coming from aus.”

Things unfortunately took a turn for the worse today, as he was again denied an opportunity to board a flight bound for the U.S.

“Getting real tired of this s—,” Hunt wrote. “This is wat happens wen u have friends that are d—heads the last f—n time I help these mother f—n trouble makers.

“Denied again at airport I’m never helping anymore d—head mates.”

While there were some initial reports that Hunt had been arrested in New Zealand, Hunt wrote to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) on Twitter that the issues were tied to an event that took place more than a decade ago.

“It was a incident that happened 2002,” Hunt wrote.

Hunt has since said UFC officials are assisting him with his paperwork and he is expected to fly out some time Friday night (Australia and New Zealand are one calendar day ahead of U.S. time).

UFC officials declined comment on the matter, and initial attempts to reach Hunt by phone were unsuccessful.

UFC 160 takes place May 25 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. The evening’s main card airs on pay-per-view.
