Makhachkala, March 11, 2018. The Russian mixed-style fighter (MMA) Mayrbek Taisumov can miss the Absolute Fighting Championship UFC 223 tournament due to problems with obtaining an American visa. This is reported by the portal MMA Fighting.

For the same reason, Taisumov missed two previous UFC events. The Russian man's fight with the American Evan Dunham was jammed on April 7 in New York.

As to the athlete, the UFC lawyers are trying to help him solve the problem. At the same time, Taisumov's team stresses that this is a delay in obtaining a visa but not a refusal of authorities to visit the United States.

"The odd thing is that I've already been to America, I have a working visa for two years, I used to fight in the US and everything was fine ... Now it seems that I will not get a visa, and I do not know why. It is politics that affects ordinary people, like me"- the fighter confessed in an interview with MMA Fighting.
