I like the fact Barnett is on this card wouldn't be the same without him.

Well $ conquers all... Barnetts contract will be 10x that of Duffees.

  great question, I'm not sure he'd make it right in, but I could 100% see him getting highlighted on a season of TUF...

If they're picking Duffy back up after 2 fights in 2 years pretty sure signing Barnett is in the works. Not like there's a lot of depth at HW.

DC already beat Barnette. The original fight was DC vs. Mir, but Mir pulled out with an injury.

Why are they not having DC v Barney again? If that's the fight that was supposed to happen? What changed? If they are on the same card again ?

I think his card is to build momentum for these guys like DC, Barnett, Mousasi, Roger, etc for when they come to UFC!

Barnett vs Hale or Thiago Santos or Prindle in Bellator interests you?I guess its slightly better than fighting whoever he is fighting on this SF card but not much better.
