After the closing of Strikeforce last weekend and UFC On FX 7 this weekend there will be two notable free agents on the market, namely Barnett and Rampage. Bellator's CEO Bjorn Rebney explains his interest in each fighter.

Dumb of them not to have Barnett on their radar, probably because we would walk through all of their HW's, Volkov is the only one I think could give him trouble, but still think Barnett would beat him.

You've also got to think about him being caught roiding again and ruining their show. They don't have the finances of Strikeforce so it could ruin them if that happens.

I think it has more to do with the 250000 per fight he wants. I just dont think organizations are willing to pay that much for such a risk.
