Aleksander Emelianenko Expects April 11 Fight with Josh Barnett
(mmajunkie.com)
Aleksander Emelianenko (12-3), a highly ranked heavyweight (and the younger brother of famed fighter Fedor Emelianenko), will next fight April 11 for the upstart M-1 Global organization, and the Russian expects his opponent to be Josh Barnett (20-5). News of the potential bout was posted on Emelianenko’s official website at www.alex.mixfight.ru. The as-of-yet-unannounced M-1 Global event is expected to take place in Chicago. The Emelianko brothers’ manager, Vadim Finkelstein, recently sold the M-1 organization to a group of American investors who restructured the fight promotion. As its first order of business, the organization signed Fedor to a long-term deal. The organization’s CEO, longtime MMA agent and promoter Monte Cox, recently stated that the organization had planned for a February debut date but instead pushed it back a few months to allow more time for signing talent. If the organization does sign Barnett for the fight, it could signal another loss for the UFC.

Pat Miletich-Endorsed Corey Hill Makes UFC Debut Tonight
(mmajunkie.com)
One of the problems when a promoter does 30 shows a year, as the UFC is doing this year, is that there will be cards which are bereft of stars. And, at first glance, The Ultimate Fight Night card tonight in the Pearl at The Palms (Spike TV, 9 p.m. ET/PT), seems to be one of those. The main event, a welterweight battle between Josh Burkman and Mike Swick, has no title implications.

Keith Jardine Could Return in May
(mmajunkie.com)
Rumors that rising light heavyweight contender Keith Jardine (13-3-1 MMA, 5-2 UFC) might be added to an already-star-studded UFC 82 event apparently have no basis. Sources close to the fighter today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Jardine’s future is uncertain but that he’s definitely not expecting to be part of UFC 82, which takes place March 1 in Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Jardine’s been on the bench ever since the upset, which catapulted him up the world light-heavyweight rankings. In fact, many outlets currently have Jardine ranked within the division’s top five.

Regardless, Jardine is expected to return in or around May for his next bout, though the UFC continues to look for a suitable opponent.
