Yoshida is suppose to be fighting roger gracie, no?
Guess you didn't read the article. They dumped Roger as soon as they secured Barney
That's not quite accurate. From what I hear they just want more time to sell the Roger/Yoshida fight. They plan on really selling the BJJ v. Judo aspect to the Japanese public. Roger will be at the Barnett/Yoshida fight and they will start promoting him there. In Japan, Roger v. Yoshida has more potential to be a moneymaker than any Barnett fight, and that includes Barnett v. Fedor. Regardless of who wins Barnett/Yoshida, expect Yoshida to fight Roger in the future.
