Good for Josh...but, bad for Josh. Given the liability, I don't see the UFC coming anywhere near that sort of payday for him, "if" they decide to sign him. On the other hand, how much of a decrease would Barnett allow before his ego tells him to move onto smaller shows and pro wrestling. If the UFC signs him, I'm thinking it's a unique contract, with conditions and tiered pay.

That worked out nice for Josh. Biggest payday, and easiest fight on the card.

yea i dont see the ufc getting anywhere near those numbers either. josh is a big name in SF but will automatically lose some credit coming back to the ufc. i wouldn't blame josh at all if he waled away and went to pro wrestling, i wouldn't like it, but i think that guy is destined for it
