Does he plan to stand the whole time again? it was awesome, but it would be so stupid of him to give Rizzo a better chance. He's still the Rock and he's still a dangerous striker, maybe Barnett should ask Monson about that during their bout. Id love to see him stand with Rizzo but Suplex, GnP, and Submission should be the order of the day if Barny wants a W

i think that Barnett should stand with Rizzo. Pedro cuts like paper and Barnett can hold his own on the feet especialy in the clinch. he could make a real statement if he could stop Pedro with some strikes

If I were Barnett I would get in, get the W and get out!! A 1st round sub. The more he stays in there with Rizzo will just Rizzo that much more a chance to KO him, and Barnett hasn't competed in a while (just once in the last year or so) So I say go in, sub the guy and get recognized again...a fighter builds and lives off his hype!!!

It's good to see Barnett fighting more often. He is an entertaining fighter, and puts on good fights. He should come away with two more wins in his next fights.

That's just what I was thinking to myself.

1.Sylvia VS Fedor

2.Barnett VS Rizzzo

What's next?

Josh would be making a good statment if he stood with rizzo and knocked him out, but where would it leave him if he got knocked out again?

Its a bad idea all around, hes got so much more to loose by standing with rizzo. He should just take him down and pound him out.

WAR RIZZO!!!!!!!


this card has me at half mast already...if they continue at this pace i might actually reach full.

hopefully this doesn't burn them out money wise right off the bat. i hope Rizzo can KO Barnett again and prove he still has a few tricks up his sleeve.

I hope Barnett tries to stand with Rizzo and gets KTFOed. He looked terrible against Yoshida.
