A guy i know in Chicago somehow connected to Bellator who just told me they are about to sign Barnett. 

 
I guess he's the center of the PPV talk. 
 
Good for him. Anyone hear the same?

Would love to see it happen. But Bellator is going to use Viacom money to pay for him and he is going to be able to be the huge fish in that small pond. So I can't say I blame him.

Barnett wants $$$ I am sure, but I suggested he look at TNA/Bellator double deal and possibly still get to do prowrestling on New Years in Japan. He does that, it makes some sense to him

bellator makes sense for him on a lot of levels. it would also make sense for barnett's management to plant rumors like this to create leverage with zuffa.

still could be anything until there is an official announcement.

Didn't Barnett pass? Not sure leverage is going help if no one is negotiating..

Wants money? Not sure what you mean.

They aren't paying him any more than the UFC offered him, he agreed on dollars with the UFC

Well it sucks for fans but if he really wants to do the wrestling thing it makes sense for him, plus his competition in Bellator is 100x easier than in the UFC.

It's safe to say its probably wrestling. Makes sense. If you caught him on Rogans podcast he said he is a better pro wrestler etc etc. He really loves his wrestling. Phone Post

He should do the UFC fights first and remake his name in the US for Pro Wrestling.

Of course Dana prob trying to lock him up to prevent that with contract match clause etc.

Who does Bellator even have for him to fight?

Every day Bellator seems to put another thorn in Zuffa's side.

Barnett to Bellator is a good move for him and company.

He is a top 10 heavyweight, he is entertaining, exciting and a Warmaster. If he signs with Bellator I'll be watching Bellator. I watched Strikeforce before where Top Heavyweights fought at and Pride before that.
