08:09 AM ET 06.18 | The UFC's return to Boston could be in serious jeopardy, after a report surfaced regarding an effort from a state politician to keep foreign-born fighters without social security numbers from participating in the event. When you consider that the fight card's top three fights all feature foreign born fighters -- Shogun Rua, Alistair Overeem and Yuri Alcantara -- this is a big problem.
