    This really sucks. Believe it or not, this is one of the fights I was really looking forward to seeing/reading about. A guaranteed KO ending to this fight. I'm not sure a whole lot could have been done in this situation. UFC has tried to have fighters appear on their US cards unsuccessfully who had VISA issues as well. Lee Murray comes to mind.

    I had been wondering when and how they were going to try to facilitate around this ever since Aleks was announced for the card.

    Not really a surprise.

    Funny how he got a Visa to be in the states. So I dont think it's that. It's Reported that it's Hep B. From Golden Boy who broke it that Aleks was off and Goodridge was coming in as a replacement.

    Oh NO Aleks deserves the Big Time attention and status, and coming to this fight is his ticket to that considering there's a lot of Big time hype , celebrities and Business Moguls watching this Card, I really hope there's no politics involve as he was Vocal against kimbo and the UFC
