Josh Barnett never to fight in UFC... even if he wins SFGP

Post by Dagwood on Sat Feb 18, 2012 10:40 pm




IMO - Dana & Lorenzo will never let Josh Barnett fight in the UFC again. He is a nightmare fight for every HW in the division.

The answer to the JDS, Overeem or Velasquez riddle is Barnett's extreme durability, superior wrestling, submission game & experience that none of those guys can stop. None! Josh is a baaaaad match up for all of those guys and they know it. So, do the Zuffa brain-trust. Dana & Lorenzo can't afford exposing their top guys. Dana's also talked do much shit about Josh over the years he would have swallow his PRIDE to sig Josh. I just don't see that happening.

I agree with you here, Zuffa would much rather deal with cormier(sp?) because they know that even though he is good and did beat bigfoot he is undersized for a hw and it would lead to him eventually losing to reem or cain(jds is a joke nothing more then a lucky punch champ imo). They know Josh is still dangerous and can stop thier "top" guys even the reem(but reem also can stop Josh). But I much rather Josh stay clear of them anyway and help the sport grow globally and hopefully a superfight with Fedor.

I gotta disagree.
There is no chance in hell ZUFFA won't bring him up if he beats DC.

Dana won't let a guy who just won such a major "tournament" and who has so many loyal fans go to DREAM or Bellator. Can you imagine the numbers Fedor vs Barnett could do in Japan or Russia!? God, Fedor pulls 25k + fighting guys like Monson and Ishii, a fight with Josh would be astronomical.

JB would be a threat to the title in any organization

No doubt. Barnett would be the perfect champion for M-1, KSW and DREAM. He would give them the attention they need and I truly hope he doesn´t sign with the UFC. They already got their share of top fighters.

Their loss. The guy's a beast and can rape almost their entire division.

Josh is a great fighter who could beat all of Zuffa's overhyped fighters. If he did this then he would expose them for what they really are. Overeem and Fedor has the biggest chance against Josh.

Josh is also pretty popular and very active inside and outside MMA, especially in Japan where the guy is raking in the big bucks. Josh might be too expensive for Zuffa to acquire because of it.

Thirdly is that Josh doesnt need the UFC and I dont see him continually kissing up to Zuffa and Dana.

The only real problem I see that would stop Josh going to UFC is Pro Wrestling. We all know UFC own your soul once you sign and I'm not sure he would want to give up IGF...but this is probably his last chance at a UFC and he can always go back to puro later.

However you can never tell. Josh isn't the kind of guy who likes being bossed around and believe me, Inoki takes very good care of Josh, so who knows.

i must see Barnett put Mir to sleep or rip his legs apart.

a fight with Werdum would be pretty cool to see too.

Josh Barnett's bottom game is trash. He was outgrappled by Cro Cop in their second fight...
