Without fighting, UFC debutant John Phillips says he would have been dead.

Welshman John Phillips' UFC debut in Denver is on hold after visa issues.

Phillips was set to become the third Welshmen to fight in UFC but has been denied permission to fight in the USA.

Phillips must now wait for a 'subject access report' which can take up to 40 days to be completed.

Phillips, who had previously explained his excitement at signing with UFC, was not available for comment.

The UFC also declined to comment.
