An elite heavyweight, who is very popular in Japan and paid lord know's how much, is allowed to fight in catch-wrestling matches, outside MMA promotions and all this while constantly being booked for 1 event after another.
Im sorry but I don't know of any fighter with this much financial smoothness.
That's Josh Barnett for you, the coolest guy evar!!!
i likes me some Baby Faced Assassin
sounds like a damn good contract.
Well most guys outside the UFC have all the freedom they want, but very few are as sought after and highly paid.
I wouldn't be surprised if he was the best paid heavyweight, other than Fedor. He might not make as much as Nog per fight, but he has more fights.
Gotta love Barnett and Fedor. To me these two exhibit the true elite Heavyweights in the world. Always ready to bang and well in control of their careers.
