Silva Vs. Barnett In November?! The SENGOKU Heavyweight Title
Antonio Silva has revealed to tatame that an WVR official has informed him that if he defeats Big Jim York at SENGOKU X, he will face Josh Barnett at SENGOKU XI in November for the SENGOKU Heavyweight title.
I believe WVR PR Kokuho said in a recent interview with one of the Japanese MMA magazines that the winner of York/Silva would possibly face Josh Barnett in November. It wasn’t set and I don’t think he mentioned a title though.
Kokuho already mentioned their doping tests more than before now that Barnett might have his return fight. Expect more talk like that when Barnett’s SENGOKU return fight is announced.
