Bigfoot: Barnett is scared of me

by Chris Palmquist |

Earlier this week Josh Barnett revealed he wasn't interested in a bout with Bigfoot Silva, citing that he didn't want to help him in any way, including giving him publicity by smashing his face in. Today Silva responded to that interview:

"I woke up this morning and saw his interview," Silva told "He’s giving excuses because he’s scared. That’s the word. He says he won’t fight me because he doesn’t want to give me name and money with this fight, but the truth is he’s scared.

"I think he should take a look at the rankings. I’m ranked at no. 4 and he’s no. 5. The last guy that beat him got knocked out by me."

Barnett used the F word when referring to "Bigfoot" in the interview, which added more fuel to the fire.

"He crossed a line with his words in that interview," he said. "It was unprofessional, but it was good because he gave me another reason to train hard. I was so pumped up this morning that I went to the gym and trained even more. That’s how I like. If he wasn’t educated by his mother, I’ll teach him a lesson."

Here's the answer: Bigfoot Silva - Raised by Wolves AND Polar Bears? (shiver) I wouldn't want to fight him without Weller, Lithgow and Goldblum and John Bigboote in my corner. Lithgow at least has some experience with Bigfoot.

I see this as the case in a nutshell. I think there is also a chance (although far from being favored) Bigfoot gets the top position himself, which is no fun for anyone on the bottom.My best guess is enough of the fight remains on their feet as to give Bigfoot a shot. Lack of TRT produces a question for anyone who was on it IMO in addition.If Bigfoot hits him real good, it's a wrap.

I remember when Josh beat fedor's brother Alex, Alex in an interview was talking a gang of shit about josh.PRIDE use to do these behind the scenes shoots and somewhere on YouTube is a video of Josh catching up with Alex backstage and called him out on his bullshit and Alex looked as if he saw a ghost,basically got punked.Bottom line I seriously doubt josh is scared of anyone

Josh is faster and a better wrestler but I don't see him subbing Bigfoot. Standing I think Josh has the speed but Bigfoot has the power. Not sure who to pick.

I bet that he wouldn't fight in the UFC again, didn't think they would sign a multiple time roider but obviously I was wrong.
