One problem with kick-boxing and muay-thai is that the multitude of different associations and awarding bodies does make it harder to prove a fighter's pedigree to the State Department.

It is a shame because Steve was looking awesome in the build-up to the fight. Seeing him at that size was scary, but he didn't seem to be slowing down at all.
Joe Schilling said that Wakeling didn't show up for important visa interview appointments that Glory made for him.

Joe must have friends in the visa office!
in all seriousness the wakeling/schilling fight needs
to happen, his not being in the tourny no doubt effected the result! i hope glory dont protect their new american champ and actually make the fight as the fans want it and im sure being the fighter he is Joe wants it too!

Hopefully you are correct. Them fighting each other will be good as wel.

Now I really want Wakeling to come and beat up Schilling as well (he seem like a douche)

Any chance this match goes down at the NY show? I heard an interview with Schilling where he said he thinks hes got a fight at Glory 12 but wasnt sure against who.

That would be surprising. Steve only lives about 10 miles from the US Embassy in London.

I've done 3 Visa interviews there myself (As media, am not an athlete), and it's not that hard to reschedule them. They can usually get you in within 24 hours unless it's peak season. The processing takes longer, but you don't have to be around for that.

I'm going to Scorpions this Sunday. Steve won't be around, but I can ask his brother.

I think the issue is he reported a criminal charge from when he was a minor that he didn't need to report.
