    This blows, there were some undercard bouts I was looking forward too...Damn Barnett = DOUCHE...They should put him through a gauntlet of all the fighters that were supposed to appear on the card, lol. That would be Justice I would pay too see. Either that or they should show it for free instead of cancelling all together.

    I agree. And Joe, Lorenzo did say in a recent interview that they could work something out on the Sambo issue. So, they're at least able to give some on that.

    This.

    Everyone else on that card trained his ass off for that card, and their paychecks. Barnett's testing took bread from their tables.

    I'm not in the fight promotion biz, but I could imagine that a last minute change to a venu out of the country which would include (but not limited to): securing the arena, getting visas for all the fighters, making travel arangements for all the fighters, refunding all the tickets for the american venu for people who already bought tickets but can't make it to Japan, could probably be too much for a fledgling organization that was already bleeding money from every orifice they have.

    ^^^

    And flaunting an Athletic Commission's decision like that would probably kill their ability to ever hold an event again in the US outside of Indian reservations.

    Furthermore the MMA craze in Japan has died down to a significant degree leaving promotions like DREAM and Sengoku struggling to draw crowds even with major Japanese stars fighting there.

    It would be financial and promotional harakiri IMO. :)
