Affliction Entertainment and M-1 Global are looking for a new opponent to face Fedor Emelianenko at Affliction “Trilogy” on Aug. 1 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

Multiple sources have told Sherdog.com that the California State Athletic Commission will not license Josh Barnett after a positive result on a pre-fight test. Calls to the California State Athletic Commission and Affliction Entertainment were not immediately returned.

Barnett said he had not been notified of any issues with his eligibility as of Tuesday evening.

One source told Sherdog.com that Emelianenko will have the opportunity to choose between Belfort and Bobby Lashley.


Although I think Fedor would beat both of these guys, I think Belfort would be a much more interesting match up.


“No matter what happens with this, I can assure you I will clear my name. This will not be something that I am defined by.”


Considering this wouldn't be his first time testing positive(assuming this is for steroids), i'm pretty sure this would leave a pretty ugly stamp on Barnetts career.

Belfort? something tells me that they're just wanting another UFC champ under his belt

Yeah Belfort's fast hands make for a more interesting match up than Lashley who will most likely be armbarred or TKO'd. I'm curious to see who Fedor would choose, and about the fact that they allowed him to.

I'm always suspicious when the CSAC has good news for the UFC.

I say go Lashly. I want to see him in the UFC and if he puts on a decent showing against Fedor it will help his chances.

The article was updated and multiple sources have confirmed Belfort has agreed in principle to the fight should Barnett not be allowed to.

This just plain sucks. This is one of my dream matchups. If this is true,Barnett should be ashamed of himself. This was the main reason I would buy the ppv. Nothing else on the card is anywhere near as compelling to me. Babalu/Mousassi and Vitor/Santiago are nice, but not nice enough for me to shell out 45 $. Plus, Vitor fighting Fedor has no suspense for me, and Vitor/Santiago did So now I lose the 2 fights I wanted too see most .I would rather see Fedor/Rothwell. At least Ben's a big heavy and I could convince myself( slim as that is of actually happening) he has the power to land a punchers chance KO. So I guess I will be watching this one at the sportsbar.
