A short interview with Josh Barnett about his current contract and how he feels about UFC and Dana White. Sounds like Josh Barnett wants to be a UFC fighter again...

barnett's ability to meld effectiveness and success with the showmanship and entertainment value of Pro-wrestling moves, all while presenting himself intelligently should be viewed as a major asset to any promotion. I just hope he gets the crack at Fedor he has been asking for, wherever he ends up. I've loved him ever since he stood up w/ Pedro Rizzo for an entire fight despite being primarily a grappler.

UFC hasn't even contacted him, glad to see Dana is living up to his promise of bringing in the best, "ALL OF THEM"...what about Gomi?? Soko?? Overeem?? Kang?? Now add Barnett to that list. What happened to Mark Hunt?? What a joke

Not a serious contender?? the guy is considered a top 5 HW in the world, so to totally count him out is just plain silly.


I would love to see the Barnett Vs Fedor match.

I think Barnett could give him a few troubles

Lol...not a serious contender. Cro Cop may have his number, but he tapped Hunt easily and fought a pick em fight vs Nog twice, beating him once. He was in the finals of the OWGP. This reminds me of people who pick Sylvia or Arlovski over Mark Hunt. Mark Hunt has problems with submissions, but I'm sick of hearing Randy would beat CC or Gonzaga would beat Fedor.

thejuice said it best, ever since CC lost to Gonzaga every PRIDE HW is considered "overrated"...I have a feeling PRIDE HWs will take over.

Not ENTIRELY. Gonzaga's still a good fighter, as are Couture and Brandon Vera.
