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.
