    Masvidal only had a 1 week medical suspension after his Wonderboy fight. Didn't take any bad damage despite getting dropped once. I think it's more than enough time to get fit since he's known to walk around 190 between fights. Also Jorge fights out of ATT and Usman was a part of team Blackzilian during the show. Jorge could get back in the win column, too slick of standup for Usman.

    Under this administration, that would lead to his visa being fast-tracked.

    I call BULLSHIT. You dont even need a visa to travel between the US and Norway. I've done it many times just using a passport.

    Damn, Norwegians need Visa's to work/settle in USA too?

    With general development level of Norway, education, etc. one would think that even USA would mostly welcome them. :p

    "visa issue" is the new ducking. No one wants Usman.

    People run into visa issues commonly. Not to say that Trump is doing anyting positive for the immigration system (republican voters in general seem utterly blind to the simple reality that the world has lagely thrived on immigrant labor for a thousand years and that one or two terrorists hardly represent a significant sample of people as a whole).

    I dont see how a professional organization schedules fights without knowing these things? If i took time to sign and setup a fight for someone in a certain location id be b certain both can get to said location
