Barnett wants JDS next


Josh  Barnett is a former UFC heavyweight champion, and after a loss in his last fight, is hoping to get back on track to a title shot, and would like to start with a win over a former champion:

Josh Barnett wants to reclaim his UFC heavyweight title and “The Warmaster” knows he has to go through former champ Junior Dos Santos for that opportunity.

“I talked to his manager and he wants to fight Junior Dos Santos next,” reporter Ariel Helwani said on this week’s edition of “UFC Tonight.” “He wants to get back in the title picture and he has to go through him.”

Wait up, did Barnett’s manager essentially just label dos Santos as the heavyweight division’s gatekeeper? Well, after two straight lopsided losses to reigning champ Cain Velasquez, I guess I can see where he’s coming from.

LOL! Barnett was man handled by Cormier and KO'd by Browne. What in the hell does he think he has to offer JDS?

He's one of my favorites but jds is just a better version of Cro cop whose style gives him fits.

Outside of Cain, JDS is probably going to handle everyone else in the division.

Hoping for a JDS win although it wouldn't surprise me one bit if it ends up being more competitive than most people think.
