http://mmajunkie.com/news/2012/11/josh-barnett-vs-nandor-guelmino-added-to-strikeforce-champions

Strikeforce's final event will serve as Josh Barnett's final obligation to the promotion.

Sources close to the fighters today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Barnett (31-6 MMA, 2-1 SF) is targeted to meet fellow heavyweight Nandor Guelmino (11-3-1 MMA, 0-0 SF) on the Showtime-televised main card of "Strikeforce: Champions."

The event, which features prelims on Showtime Extreme, takes place Jan. 12 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

It's expected to be Strikeforce's final event.



Guelmino, 36, recently extended his current win streak to seven with a decision victory over Emil Zahariev at a fight card in Slovenia. The Austrian fighter has earned six of his 11 career wins by submission and three by knockout. Notably, he suffered a first-round TKO loss to ProElite vet Andreas Kraniotakes in 2009.

This show must be over budget & they are just meeting contractual obligations.

I'm glad Barnett has a fight and I will be watching... but this card is looking more pointless as each day goes by.

Sal Penis -

Can you imagine the UFC putting a card on like this nowadays? There is no fucking way that would happen. They would give you a top fighter and a bunch of cans to fill up the rest of the card.

 

Besides the UFC on Fox this is likely the last STACKED card you will ever see in MMA. It's a sad day endeed.

Too obvious Phone Post

I think this is a fight to determine if they want to bring Couture into the UFC.

Maybe they dont just want to bring him in because of his name, they want to see if he really has what it takes to swim in the shark tank LW div. If he beats Noons that def tells the UFC he can be a UFC LW atleast on the lower/mid level.

If he loses would they still bring him over?

This is by design. They are going to make barnett, cornier, and gracie look good before they show up in the big show.

Im not against an occasional, exiting can crushing...

Lets hope no one shits the bed here Phone Post
