Barnett travel delayed by ‘little congestion’
According to Josh Barnett’s manager Leland LaBarre, The Warmaster wasn’t feeling well enough to fly to Oklahoma City Tuesday due to what he described as “a little congestion.”
LaBarre said Barnett had to get clearance to fly from his doctor on Wednesday, who determined the heavyweight was healthy enough to travel. As a result, Barnett flew to Oklahoma City Thursday morning. Typically, North American Zuffa fighters are scheduled to fly to an event on Tuesday for a Saturday night fight.
“He’s ready and excited for Saturday night,” LaBarre said.
Josh Barnett fights Nandor Guelmino on Saturday night in the Strikeforce Finale.
