***Barnett likely NOT fighting at 34***

Source: Josh Barnett's Myspace Blog.


There are some rumors thaty I will be fighting on the next PRIDE show, April 8th. Well I wish I could say there was much truth to it but at this point it doesn't look very likely at all.

I had been training on a schedule to fight on the now canceled April 28th show and was contacted about now fighting on the 8th. Even though this would cut my time to train significantly, I was still receptive to fighting and planned to fight anyway. But at this point PRIDE has been unwilling or unable to make a match happen. We have yet to make any headway in booking a match and ,to me, it seems as though they are not even trying.

So for all that were expecting me to fight I am sorry to say that at this point, it is not happening. I know some fans in Japan already bought some tickets and I am sorry for that.

I hope to be fighting again in the near future, but as for when, I can't say.

The cards are from different language sites therefor they arrent updated the sameway, therefor everyone is tripping out :-).

All the fighters listed from both "language" cards are still performing with the exception of Barnett and I imagine that within a week the full cards will be available and the same in both languages.

Too bad Josh isnt going to be fighting. I hope he at least commentates.
