The UnderGround, Mayor
 

The Warmaster is coming on the UnderGround Friday at 5:00 PM PST (8:00 PM ET).

Josh Barnett is one of the best fighters on Earth; this January will mark his 16th year in MMA. He is a world class grappler, and has opened countless minds to the Western tradition of submission. He has with dignity maintained a parallel career as a pro wrestler in Japan, collects fast cars, loves extreme metal, and above all else is one of the rarest things in modern culture - a genuine individual.

Post your questions below, and Josh will come on and answer them Friday, as well as any more that might be posted while he is on.

As ever, please post as if you are speaking with Josh face to face.

This is his face:

Josh, if you are moved to the ufc would you like to make your way to a title shot? What gameplan would you implement against Cain? JDS?

You're boss! Love your podcast appearances

Please tell us how you first met and started training with Eric Paulson.  Do you still train with him?  If so how often?  How much has influenced your personal grappling/ MMA style?  Thanks!

Josh, what is your biggest regret or what would you have done a little differently in your mma career or change if you could. Also, it's an honor to fight on the final strikeforce event with you. Thanks. Phone Post

Huge fan. Two questions.

1.) What albums are you currently listening to?

2.) Any chance of a rubber match with Big Nog if you're brought over to the UFC?

Josh - Can you share with us your recollection of the sparring session Paulson was talking about in the above video?

Who are you looking forward to fighting most in the UFC?

Thank you very much for the blood you've left on the mat putting on exciting fights for us fans.

WAR BARNETT.

Just listened to your most recent appearance, great job.

The Internet has been wanting to see you vs frank Mir for a long time. Have you guys ever trained with each other or have you ever entertained fighting him? If so what advantages do you think you would have over him? What would you have to watch out for?

Thanks Phone Post
