Dana White: Barnett in UFC 'probably going to happen'


At UFC 155, UFC president Dana White was asked about whether the UFC was going to sign Strikeforce heavyweight Josh Barnett.

His reply was noncommittal.

"I have no clue," said White. "I don't know, we'll find out soon. We'll see,."

At the UFC 158 press conference White as again asked, and this time Barnett fans got something to be hopeful about.

"It's probably gonna happen," said White.

How bad do you want to see The Warmaster in the UFC?

He has been a top 10 heavyweight fighting who in the last 5 years? other than getting tossed around by DC

I honestly couldn't care less if Barnett comes to the UFC or not, I think he could have some interesting fights in the UFC but I also think he's WAY overrated with no top 10 wins in a decade so if he doesn't sign it doesn't really have a effect on the top of the division.

As has been pointed out: Mir, Struve, Big Country, Werdum, Big Nog are all great fights. Hell yes I want Josh back in the UFC.

Goddam this makes me so happy.   Warmaster might not win the UFC title but there are so many sweet match-ups for the dude. I love to see him fight big Nog again (for history sake), a battle between Mir and him would be epic, letting him slug it out with big country would be awesome and small run in with Werdum would be pretty great as well. A struve vs Barnett match up would be pretty good as well.   And if he wins a few he can always challenge one of the big three,Overeem,JDS or Cain.
