Fedor vs Barnett off...

http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/...=9201&zoneid=2

WFS

Lashley turned it down, Belfort tentatively agreed.

I doubt Affliction allows Belfort - Emelianenko to happen.

Baby faced juice head.

Affliction may fold after this.

Promotion company has been in trouble and to lose this fight will cripple them.

Barnett should just stick to training other fighters.

This is the 2nd time he's "juiced".

This blows

That fight was a must for both fighters as well as the sport. Big loss for Affliction, who is said to be under already as a promoter and whose next card is said to be their last.

They might just let Vitor fight. I sure hope they do. Vitor wouldn't have as much to lose as he has to gain, as with everybody who fights The Emperor. Vitor sure has the skills to defeat Fedor and shock the world, raising his stock through heavens, and as focused as he is right now, I would actually put my money on him.

This is probably the nail in the Affliction coffin.

Wouldn't doubt it.

You think Dana has already called to see if Fedor has a cancellation clause in his contract when something like this happens?

Too bad. That's gonna leave a mark. I was looking forward to this too.

Rumors around that they've asked Brett Rogers to take the Baby Faced Juice Head's place.

Re: Fedor vs Barnett off...

I'm a fan of Barnett's, but what a moron. You think he would have learned after the first time he got busted. Now IF this fight ever does happen it's going to be over a year away.

Bretts' name as a replacement immediatelly popped to mind when I first read about this. However, Fedor is no Arloski and would dispatch rogers fast and in devastating fashion. Brett is simply too green and one dimensional for The Emperor. Not a valid opponent and definately not one worth of Fedor risking a loss to (after all it's a MMA fight and anything can happen).

Fedor has reached a status where he either fights the very best or he shouldn't fight at all!
