Barnett: It's 'pretty likely' I'll end up in UFC

by Luke Thomas | source:

"I think it's pretty likely," Barnett said about the prospects of signing with the UFC. "I think it's a good fit for a person like me. I mean, unless you don't want me to go in there and beat all those dudes up and completely throw your rankings out of whack, and change the whole perception of who the best heavyweights in the world are. Now if you don't want that, then yeah, definitely don't bring me over. But if you just want to have the biggest and best collection of heavyweights in the world, then you've got to have me there."

"I want to go where the opportunity is best," Barnett continued. "And I like the idea of that full roster over there being at my disposal to be disposed of. I've been in this game longer than the new version of the UFC has, so I'm sure that my management and everybody will work it out to wherever fits best, that's where I'll be."

I don't think he would murder JDS at all but he's definitely a bad matchup.He's a worse matchup for Cain though IMO.

Barnett vs Mir is a fight I've wanted to see for years!

He has the power, i think he he may lack the speed if JDS runs and jabs. Think about this, Barnett KO'd Rizzo and had nog almost collapsed, yet his hands are easily his 2nd weapon to the submissions. That's why he's so dangerous.

Josh would hurt JDS really bad.

I believe Josh is more well rounded. He has the size and experience, to challenge JDS, but, he lacks the athleticism and power to be a true threat. With that being said, I hope you're right, I'm a huge Josh Barnett fan.

Let's not get crazy. But, TTT for Josh getting back into the UFC, it's where he's always belonged.
