elysian - I believe that The Warmaster is a much better overall fighter then DC, and if not for his broken hand, he'd have won that fight.
DC broke his hand in the fight also. Phone Post

Old Feller - 

Great fighter, but it seems like he and his agent over-estimate his drawing power.  Rightly or wrongly, the UFC holds all the cards here. 


no question...

My guess is this or not wanting to give up his image rights to be in the UFC Games. Phone Post

InvisibleControl - What a loss man. I hope they work it out. He NEEDS to be in the UFC again. Too much talent to let go to waste.

I hope they figure it out.

Wonder if it's over something like not letting him have metal walkout music? haha.

Please work it out.

Please.

So many great match-ups there for him.

LOL

We can blame slayer for this!!!

NAKMEEZY - Cormier already schooled him. UFC signed some big heavyweights this past 6 months. UFC needs Barnett way less than Barnett needs UFC..

They also just signed the guy he destroyed..

Pissed hot too many times IMO. Therefore it will be hard for anyone to ever consider him to be legitimate. Sad that he has the talent to beat just about anyone on a given day, but humiliated himself by cheating.

My guess is this had nothi9ng to do with money as, they said they agreed on compensation. I think it has more to do with Barnett and outside projects Barnett is involved with IE Pro wrestling.

Josh making a huge mistake if this is just over some minor thing, IMO.

He won't come close to UFC money anywhere else. And since he already got beat bad by Cormier, his stock isn't that high.

It could be that despite all his "Warmaster" bluster, he really is averse to fighting top competition. I hope that's not the case. But Josh is a smart man, so he has to know the UFC can pay him best.

And he has to know rejecting their offer might offend the UFC - especially given his drug testing history. I think this is a bad move by Josh unless the UFC was seriously low-balling him.

Time to close the Barnett chapter.

As much as I love the guy he should be grateful that The UFC even offered him a contract.

It was an olive branch, if Josh had impressed in his first few fights I'm sure he could've renegotiated.

Short term pain, long term gain. Phone Post
