Latest addition to the Strikeforce Heavyweight roster, Josh Barnett, declared that he prefers to square off against Andrei "The Pitbull" Arlovski in his debut for the promotion. Speaking on Mauro Ranallo's radio show, this is what Josh Barnett had to say about his first Strikeforce match-up:
“You know, one thing that just seems to keep following me around like a bad small is a match-up with Andrei Arlovski, I don’t know why. It doesn’t matter whether he’s on a losing streak or a winning streak or Japan or the US, his name keeps popping up consistently. So I imagine he’s probably going to be the first on the list.”
Meanwhile, Michael Schiavello confirmed that Andrei Arlovski will participate in the 1/8 Final Event of K-1 WGP, taking place on October 2nd in Seoul, South Korea. Arlovski will not fight as the part of K-1 WGP Eighth Final, but will square off against the yet unnamed opponent outside the tournament format.
