Barnett sees 'last big opportunity' with Strikeforce

by Sergio Non | source:

Strikeforce might be Josh Barnett's final path to prominence.

"It just seemed like the way things are coming together, it was going to be the place to be," Barnett says of Strikeforce. "My chance to really make a huge mark on this sport, and perhaps the last big opportunity I'm really going to get."

The heavyweight has accomplished almost possible for him in mixed martial arts, both good and bad. He captured belts in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Pancrase. He won major fights in Pride Fighting Championships. He's tested positive multiple times for banned substances, though he denies using them. He's beaten some of the best heavyweights of his generation, including Randy "The Natural" Couture and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. He's trained some of the best fighters, such as women's MMA superstar Megumi Fujii.
