And he'd like it to be on CBS. "When it comes down to it, the thing that matters most to me is being able to fight. I just want to make sure I can get out there and crack as many heads as possible ... [Visibility] matters big time, 'Cause when I dislocate and tear somebody's head completely off their shoulders and spew blood all over the ring, and then drink it, I want the whole world to see it. I'd love to fight on CBS. Punch somebody so hard that their eyeballs pop out of their head. We haven't really hit on any solid dates yet or anything like that, or even opponents ... In due time. There's not too many people all that chomping at the bit and so ready to meet their death."

Barnett has always been a good trash talker like this. He's probably the original Chael Sonnen to be honest. The guy once said he'd kick his own mother's ass or something along those lines.

I hope he stays off the roids and makes a comeback in his career. At this point I doubt it, but here's to hoping he can somehow find a way to redeem himself in my eyes and everyone else's.

Barnett's comments always have that Frank Mir/Forrest Griffin type delivery and usually are just part of the game for him. No surprise and no need to get emotional over.

while i'm not a fan of Barnett, i absolutely got the sarcasm in his statement. It really isnt comparable to Mir or Cerrone hoping their opponent is the first death in MMA.

Yeah, I definitely think there is some hyperbole here, but by the same token I'm imagining these are the kind of comments that make CBS execs cringe. Many people don't realize that CBS is owned by Disney. Remember the Kimbo/Thompson fight where the camera kept panning out b/c they were afraid Thompson was going to lose his shorts, or when his ear busted they went to black and white? CBS wants in on the money generated by mma companies, but they have to maintain a clean image. I don't really have a problem with Barnett's comments, but I can see where they could be spun in a negetive light by people who oppose mma and by CBS execs.

I remember when they did that to the wwe, I Miss the old WWE/F i would probably still watch it if they had the 24/7 hardcore title rule and stuff. but now they are all just memories of my childhood :(

Barney needs to take his brain out of Pro-Wrestling mode, and switch back to MMA. He needs to be concetrating on training and a bit less on drinking blood!!??

I can't wait to see how many fighters will duck Barnett, as they duck each other also.

ABC is owned by Disney, not CBS, who is independently owned after 2000. Just a little info.
