If you thought Mark Hunt was the only UFC employee with Visa issues, then you are wrong.
 
According to a report on FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight", Swedish Lightweight Reza Madadi will no longer be fighting at UFC on FOX 8.
 
Apparently Madadi's original opponent Michael Chiesa will now be facing off against former Strikeforce Lightweight contender Jorge Masvidal on July 27 at the KeyArena in Seattle.
 

UFC on FOX 8 features a main event between Demetrious Johnson and John Moraga for the UFC Flyweight title.

    Damn was looking forward to the Medadi Chisea fight, two good submission grapplers... and you got to love Reza's craziness.

    It would have been a great show of grappling skills, 1 of those fights that could take place almost completely on the ground and still be entertaining the whole way through. Bad luck for both of them. I give Chiesa a small chance at beating Masvidal.
