Emil Valhalla Meek’s UFC Return In Jeopardy, Over Visa Issues

Emil Meek has not competed inside the octagon since last year, as the fighter has been recovering from an injury. Now Meek is set to make his big octagon return at UFC 219, which goes down Dec. 30 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. However, it would appear that the fighter’s big return may now be in jeopardy.

Taking to Instagram, Meek revealed that issues with his visa may lead to his fight being rescheduled.

“Dear army… I just received information that my Visa is having some delays and that UFC might have to reschedule my next fight if I am not cleared within few days.
It is unfair to Usman not knowing if and when he will receive an alternate opponent, so I have accepted the fact that the fight is in jeopardy and volunteered to jump in on short notice in Canada December 16.th if they have any pullouts or take a bout in a different country.
I’ve also offered to step in against Gastelum, but at the moment it looks like Bisbing will replace Silva.

“Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted as I️ get more info..!

For now, Meek is still set to take on Kamaru Usman at UFC 219.
