Which also means that if he wins, his next fight will also happen in Japan and what if he advances to the final? Is California-based organization going to organize the show in Japan instead of Cali just because of Barnett? Sounds ridiculous. And if he wins the tournament, it'll be more ridiculous, how can you promote this kind of champion?
I agree that it will be a headache. Barnett can't become champion by winning the tournament though. Last I heard Overeem's title wasn't going to be up for grabs in the tournament.
Nevertheless it is still a hassle to center this all around Barnett.
