It should be good, Barnett is well-spoken and polite for the most part, plus hes very knowledgable...

Hopefully it goes down a little like this:

ahaha glad you clarified. I thought you meant Barnett was gonna might Misasaki. That woulda been sick.
But i dunno. Has Barnett ever done Annoucning? Im sure he is knowledgeable about the sport. He is after all one of the top fighters in the world.
But so was Randy Couture. Knowledge isnt always power in Announcing. You have to have that entertainment quality. Like Bas, or Rogan.

I think he'll do great. He's just as well-spoken as Frank Mir is and Mir did a great job in the UFC as a commentator.

I think Josh will do great and might have a career in this after he's done with fighting.

Thanks for the news.

Rampage was the best Announcer the ever had.

Barnett will do good, he has a good sense of humour and I'd rather him do commentary then fight personally.
