After winning the DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix, Gegard Mousasi has apparently agreed to fight on January’s Affliction card. Mousasi also confirmed Fedor’s next opponent, “I think it is Fedor against Josh Barnett and they want me to fight Vitor Belfort,” Mousasi told Fighters Only Magazine.
It seems as though Andre Arlovski’s October 4th fight with EliteXC will allow Josh Barnett to get the nod for the WAMMA heavyweight title. It was Arlovski who was originally chosen as the #1 contender prior to Emelianenko’s injury.
Belfort was also just recently re-added to Affliction’s January event after being taken off of the October card due to an injury. He was originally set to face Matt Lindland.
