If you know how, please tell Josh Barnett. The top-ranked MMA Heavyweight, who is also the cornerman of Japanese female fighter Hitomi Akano, feels the victory by Cristiane Santos over Akano at SF's 4/11 event was "hollow" and that Santos deserves "no respect" and no praise.

I agree that the weight-cutting fiasco was horrible, Cyborg should be ashamed.

I agree, but also i give props to Akano for still taking the fight with a much bigger and stronger Cyborg.....

Barnett says it the way it is. I think a lot of fans will agree with him here.

Cyborg apologized a couple of times for not making the weight, and Barnett was definitely there to hear it.
In addition, what about a guy cought on roids talking about respecting the sport and opponent??? That's ridiculous...

I also cannot remember someone calling Gina not making weight a "faisco" by the way..

I agree with you on the barnett thing... calling randy a paper champion when he was the one who got busted for roids, ripping into florian because florian said that he should've been able to finish Yvel having spent the majority of the fight in mount.... I do find myself agreeing with a lot of the comments Barnett makes, but he's made his fair share of mistakes and has said some pretty bone headed things. He doesn't have the same kind of class as a gsp or fedor so you gotta take what he says with a grain of salt.

And did gina actually miss weight yet? She's obviously had some serious problems each time because she's competing in a class in which she doesn't belong, but has she actually missed it yet?

Missing weight is missing weight, and it doesn't matter how much. But, when Gina misses weight everybody is like no big deal, just because she is Gina. I don't give a flying cheeseburger about Gina. Because, Gina is a pro just like everybody else. Man or woman, make weight.

Missing weight sucks, but it happens...Pure and simple, how I see it...

My Issue is Josh Barnett. First he attacks 155 lb Kenny florian because of his analysis, now he's Attacking Cyborg for not making weight. Didn't hear him crying when Gina didn't make weight (twice)...Plus, it's real easy for barnett to comment on that, considering he's a heavyweight and NEVER has to cut.

Personally, I stopped taking what he says seriously when he called Randy Couture a "paper Champion" After he beat Gonzaga because "Barnett never lost the title" without mentioning that he had the belt stripped because he was on roids when he beat Randy, so he went to fight in Japan where they don't test for roids.

I respect Barnett as a fighter, but he's getting more headlines for verbally attacking Lightweights and Women these days. Kinda sad, really

Well, it was kinda the same thing. Gina missed with 4.5 pounds over, Cyborg with 5.5 pounds. But Cyborg is not the everybody's darling postergirl, in the end that's the difference.
