What can I say...
I like Barnet, he brings a well rounded game and trains with a great team.... I don't know what to say other than I'm a little sad.
Anyway, now that there's no Fedor vs Barnet on the Horizon M-1/Affliction is grasping at straws for a replacement. Belfort is even being considered, Belfort, I mean I like Belfort, or at least old Belfort, but the one who's been showing up the past few years shouldn't be fighting Fedor. I like Belfort to much for that, Fedor needs a strong opponent, and Affliction needs to find that opponent or their show is going to take a big hit from the fans.
Sigh It's a good card too...
Anyway I'll still be watching because of Babalu, Gomi, Yvel, Mousasi, Buentello, and even Belfort
