Mostapha Al-Turk In Doubt as Opponent for Rolles Gracie at UFC 109 with Visa Issues

Visa issues may prevent heavyweight Mostapha Al-Turk from making his third appearance inside the Octagon next Saturday at UFC 109, according to MMAWeekly, with newcomer Rolles Gracie now possible to fight a late-replacement at the February 6 event in Las Vegas.

Al-Turk (6-5) faces a must-win in his next fight after dropping his UFC debut to Cheick Kongo in December 2008 before suffering a controversial TKO loss to Mikro “Cro Cop” in June to fall to 6-5 overall and 0-2 in the UFC.

Gracie (3-0) remained undefeated with a first-round submission of Peter Graham in September in his most-recent bout, his third-straight first-round submission victory to start his MMA career, which began in 2007.
