Fedor vs Barnett in June

In my opinion, this fight should have happened at Affliction's first event in July. Instead they went with Tim Sylvia because they wanted to make a splash and felt like he was the bigger name in the States. Barnett will be a very difficult test for Fedor. Unlike Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski, Barnett uses his size. Everyone has become accustomed to Fedor knocking guys out, but this fight should be more of a ground war than anything else. Either way, I'm glad Barnett will finally get his shot.

Yes! We've been waiting for this fight for a long time. This is probably the one and only Affliction PPV I'll actually buy. Thank you Affliction.

This is ano brainer. Barnett is completely our of his league on this. Mark my words: Fedor will annihilate him.

This will be a great fight...it will be on the ground a lot and it will depend where Josh ends up. On top he will be okay...if he ends up on the bottom he will be punished...Fedor is a beast on the ground...Arlovski is just lucky that his fight with Fedor stayed on the feet because that one punch KO was a blessing...if he had gone to the ground Fedor's GNP would have really made him rethink his career....lol
