Alright, I know the past 24 hours an idiot bug has been injected into the entire MMA community. First it was reported that Kimo passed away of a heart attack. NY Times caught on, nearly every site reported it and then a few hours later his publicist created a press release letting everyone know that he was just sleeping in and not dead. See, not even Death can kill our good friend Kimo.
Now it’s been reporting that that Barnett will not pass the health commission to fight in Affliction III due to a positive drug test. Barnett hasnt released a statement regarding the matter but apparently Affliction are already tapping into their heavyweight reserves who include Vitor Belfort and Bobby Lashley who have already said they will take the fight on short notice. The choice, however, is up to Fedor. Is your heart racing like mine? Check out the sources that are popping up over the internet here and here.
Lashley vs. Fedor may be on the verge of the MMA world.
