Josh Barnett certainly thinks so. Barnett says Roach is quite wrong about comments he made about Fedor being, among other things, "flat footed" with "no technique".

He arrived in Las Vegas to kick off the New Year, and was blown away by its training atmosphere. “I’ve never trained this hard in my life,” he says. “We train in Holland maybe one, two hours in the morning, maybe two hours in the evening. Training over here, wow. I’m training with the best, so I’ll be with the best.” When MMAWeekly catches up to him, he’s giving Stephan Bonnar fits inside the caged sparring area of Xtreme Couture. After the session, Bonnar walks over and taps his glove. “Thanks for the ass kicking,” the UFC light heavyweight says.

Matyushenko Ready For Lil Nog
Sometimes a fight goes under the radar during the hyping period that often precursors large MMA events. For this Saturday’s Affliction show, "Day of Reckoning," that fight could very well be the light-heavyweight mach-up between Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Vladimir “The Janitor” Matyushenko. While both fighters are widely regarded as Top 10 talent, the unassuming nature of each man makes for a fight that could easily exceed expectations.

“No matter what Vitor shows up, he’s a dangerous man,” says 38 year-old Matt Lindland. “He’s the same guy he’s always been. What could be new about him? The only thing is he’s gotten a little older and a little slower. But he’s still dangerous. I still think he’s gotta be one of the quickest guys at 185. I would put him and Chael Sonnen as two of the quickest guys I know, at any weight class.”

Fedor on his physique and fighting ‘the best fighters in the world to date’
“All of my training is the same. Every fighter has a different physique and different baggage they bring to the ring. I don’t rely on weight training. I haven’t for several years. It’s really more focusing on the opponent and working on sparring, wrestling and certain activities I do. It’s all about the training camp. All the hard work and all the results that show up in the ring is a result of what’s done before…. Vadim [Finkelstein] is my friend, he’s my partner and he’s very well qualified and he’s proven himself as a good manager. He’s got a track record of building my career and collaborating with major organizations, which has afforded me the opportunity to fight the best fighters in the world to date. Everyone has their duties in this business. My role is to fight. Vadim’s role is to deal with people like Dana White.”

5 Questions for Affliction ‘Day of Reckoning’
The apparel company’s second semi-charitable show is low on tomato-can stock, and like the best events, it promises to pose questions about records, careers and legacies. 1. Is the “old” Vitor Belfort hiding at 185 pounds? 2. Does Freddie Roach matter in MMA? 3. Can Gilbert Yvel behave himself? 4. Can Affliction thrive? 5. Will announcer Tito Ortiz use the term “For Sure” more or less than 24 times?
