Barnett responds to 'Big Foot' Silva: F him


Josh Barnett is planning  a return to the cage later this year, and has stated he would love a fight against Junior Dos Santos. But another name that has been mentioned is Antonio 'Big Foot' Silva, to which Barnett had some strong words for:

"I don't really care (about Silva)," Barnett explained. "Here's the thing, if you really didn't like somebody, most people think, ‘aw, well the thing is you've gotta itch for that time to get him in the cage.' Look, getting in the cage is a privilege. You're going to make money by fighting me. You're going to gain notoriety, even after I smash your face, and all I'm doing is making your life better, if you can sorta see past the face smashing.

"For me, I'm not trying to help this guy out. ... I don't like him, and I don't like the way he approached anything about what he did back in his Strikeforce days and all of that. I had never even talked about this dude. He brought up all this stuff, made this huge kerfuffle, so my response is: F him. I'm not going to help him gain any ground in any way, even by losing to me. I'm not going to get him paid. I'm not going to going to get him anything, if I can help it."

I noticed that is the only thing you're outraged about. You white knight some unsavory people.

5-10?5 million is the most anyone ever got in the UFC, it was GSP, we know this because Dana and Lorenzo confirmed it. If anyone had ever been paid more than that you can guarantee Zuffa would have made that public with all the greif they get about pay.

I believe Barnett can beat anyone at HW, but Bigfoot wouldn't be an easy match for him, at all.

$5-$10M a fight seems like a big deal to me.

I've been waiting for Bigfoot vs Barnett to fight since their strikeforce days.
