Rumor: Ricardo Arona UFC bound in 2010??

 

Tatame Reports:

http://tatame.com/2010/01/15/Exclusive-Arona-in-talks-with-the-UFC

Ricardo Arona

14-5-0 MMA Record

– Won 2 of last 3 fights

– Notable Wins: Allistair Overeem, Dan Henderson, Murilo “Shogun” Rua

MF: If this rumor is true… this is the biggest signing the UFC could make besides Fedor Emelianenko and Gegard Mousasi, who are currently employed by Strikeforce. If Arona is signed, his name is instantly thrown in to title contention for the light heavyweight or middleweight belt. Arona recently came off a 2 year lay-off and beat Marvin Eastman by unanimous decison at Bitetti Combat in Brazil.

Rumor: Josh Barnett also on Strikeforce’s Radar

MMA Weekly Reports:

http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/templates/dailynews.asp?articleid=10438&zoneid=2

Josh Barnett

– 24-5-0 MMA Record

– 4 fight win streak

– Notable Wins: Antonio Nogueria, Gilbert Yvel, Randy Couture

MF: I don’t know what to think about this. How many chances is this guy going to get? No one is denying his great talent, but he has tested positive for steroids twice already. I just don’t want to see Strikeforce go through the same thing as Affliction did, if Barnett tests positive a 3rd time. Hey Barnett, stop wheezing the juuuuice…

Rumor: Roger Huerta Heading to Strikeforce?

MF: Roger Huerta hinted on his twitter account that he might be making the move to Strikeforce.

Roger Huerta: Ok…. Yall keep asking me when my next fight is going to be. Who on here wants to really know??

 My manager (Jeff Clark) and I met with scott coker and Richard Chou with strikeforce on monday. So I believe this is where…

Don’t know how i feel about this really. I still think Huerta has a lot to offer the UFC, so i wish they could put their past issues behind them. On the other hand, it’s another great pick up for Strikeforce if true. Huerta creates exciting match-ups with the champ Gilbert Melendez and contenders Josh Thomson, Mitsuhiro Ishida, and KJ Noons.
