    Norway is a party to the Schengen Agreement. This means that U.S. citizens may enter Norway for up to 90 days for tourist or business purposes without a visa. Your passport should be valid for at least six months beyond the period of stay. You need sufficient funds and a return airline ticket. For additional details about travel into and within Schengen countries, please see our Schengen fact sheet.

    It works both ways I believe.

    No, I got it. My fingers ran ahead on the phone of their own power.

    Perry is fighting a higher ranked guy in Ponzinibbio.

    Colby should step in but he is probably thinking he is getting a TS.

    I have a feeling it's going to be Covington.. or hell maybe someone like Gunnar or Maia. Maybe they pull Magny from the Condit fight and make Condit vs Usman? Then just have Magny fight someone else like Luque or just have Luque himself face off against Usman.

    Luque vs Usman would be a sick fight! I agree Usman deserves a step up but almost all the top guys are booked and Luque just got a good win. They can't just keep mutilating the FOX card so 219 has fights either.

    No way in hell will they pull Condit's opponent in order to fill a slot for Usman. Condit is the far more renowned fighter.

    Covington vs Usman is a great idea. Solid matchup and it has some drama they can bill around it.
