According to Sherdog.com, Josh Barnett has tested positive for banned substances in a pre-fight test, and therefore not be licensed to fight.

Though the Barnett camp offered denials, Affliction and M-1 Global have begun the search for a new opponent with less then 2 weeks to go to the most important card in the companies history. Shades of EliteXC anyone?

Bobby Lashley and Vitor Belfort are rumoured to be possible fodder for Emelianenko.
