At UFC 155, UFC president Dana White was asked about whether the UFC was going to sign Strikeforce heavyweight Josh Barnett.

His reply was noncommittal.

"I have no clue," said White. "I don't know, we'll find out soon. We'll see,."

At the UFC 158 press conference White as again asked, and this time Barnett fans got something to be hopeful about.

"It's probably gonna happen," said White.

How bad do you want to see The Warmaster in the UFC?

Barnett needs to be in the UFC. He has evolved tremendously as a fighter since his last stint and is a top ten heavyweight without question. He's always entertaining and puts butts in the seats. Dana and Joe make it so!

What??

Mir vs Barnett is what most wanted.Barnett vs Werdum would be good if he wasn't already booked.I would say Nelson vs Barnett is the fight to be made. Phone Post

I have no interest in seeing his fights or his lame rehearsed speeches.

I will hold back any emotion until he signs a contract. Until that point I am just cautiously hopeful.

Never become a matchmaker. Please.
This. More like Nelson/Barnett Phone Post

Look, I'm not saying its a perfect match, I'm saying the weigh-ins, the interviews, and the fight itself would be epic. Not perfectly matched, just awesome.




We all know Barry takes it hands down :)

This is very promising news.

It would be stupid not to add him to the ranks. Great fighter who is always at the top of the pack. Might be time for him and Mir to face off.

If Dana can't sign Josh, he didn't try to sign Fedor either.
