Barnett travel delayed by 'little congestion'


According to Josh Barnett's manager Leland LaBarre, The Warmaster wasn't feeling well enough to fly to Oklahoma City Tuesday due to what he described as "a little congestion."

LaBarre said Barnett had to get clearance to fly from his doctor on Wednesday, who determined the heavyweight was healthy enough to travel. As a result, Barnett flew to Oklahoma City Thursday morning. Typically, North American Zuffa fighters are scheduled to fly to an event on Tuesday for a Saturday night fight.

"He's ready and excited for Saturday night," LaBarre said.

Even with a severe flue the warmaster will still go pillage and rape on his opponent.   I really want to see Barnett in the UFC asap. He needs to fight decent to great level of competition. I really enjoyed the fuck out his fight with Cormier and think Barnett would but on some awesome fight in the UFC. He would also be freaking entertaining. The more original Chael Sonnen if you will...a little more wit and a little less goading of nationalities en large.

Barnett doesnt fight often enough imo. I love watching him fight. There's a Fedor esque feeling when he fights.
