Hey now. Does anyone know what is on Josh's agenda as far as fighting concerns? I remember hearing a rumor about 5-6 months ago of a possible fight vs. FeDor.

thanks in advance....
peace,mikEY

Sorry I dont have an answer, however I do agree that Fedor should fight Barnett at some point, I think he MIGHT give Fedor a run for his money if Barnett can stand up with him for a bit.

I'm pretty sure they would have ended up fighting in the Heavyweight tournament had Fedor not had to withdraw due to his injuries, and Barnett has essentially been the only top contender Fedor hasn't taken on so it would likely have happened if not for the UFC-PRIDE merger. The UFC and Barnett are at odds and it's unlikely that they'll be coming to terms soon.

I appreciate that update. Last I heard him on the beatdown he did not sound so nice about the UFC. I hope he fights in pride if it stays open, or comes to the UFC. He's a definite top contender IMO.

Yeah I was pretty happy about it too. I had read an article a while back that explained the whole steroid thing. I was suprised how the UFC was treating one of their rising stars especially since he was so willing to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the tests were false positives.
