Affliction: Trilogy Main Event in Danger - Josh Barnett out, Vitor Belfort in?

This Fan Post was promoted to the front page by Nick Thomas.

According to Sherdog.com:

Multiple sources have told Sherdog.com that the California State Athletic Commission will not license Josh Barnett after a positive test result. Calls to Affliction Entertainment were not immediately returned. The CSAC said a comprehensive statement would be issued Wednesday.

Vitor Belfort has agreed in principle to face the world’s No. 1 heavyweight on 11 days’ notice, according to two separate sources close to the negotiations. One source told Sherdog.com that Emelianenko will have the opportunity to choose between Belfort and Bobby Lashley. Lashley has denied knowing anything about replacing Barnett, though.

... "To just jump in there probably wouldn't be the smartest thing for me right now." said Lashley.
