If I was world victory road I would be on the phone right now. Its scheduled to take place the same day anyway. They don't test in Japan, and don't recognize US athletic commission authority, since Barnett went and fought there after he failed a test last time. If they just added Fedor/Barney, Mousassi/Babalu/and Vitor/Santiago it would be n epic card IMO.
I agree that this would be the best way to salvage some fights and or the card as a whole. However, having Barnett fight in Japan, after he has tested positive would only enhance the stigma that all fighters fighting in Japan are on performance enhancing substances.

I agree Rush it would do nothing but hurt the image of MMA in Japan. Plus Barnett would end his career in fighting or cornering ever in the US. The commissions don't take going against them well at all and by breaking his suspension (which is coming) will not only end his career in the US but also make it very tough for any fighters affiliated with him also.

If they did cancel this just because of the Barnett thing thats rediculous. The other fighters deserve to have their fights. This is unheard of.

Would it end his career in the US or just California, since it's the CSAC? I'm not sure how that stuff works.
