I think that when you trash talk the UFC for most of your PRIDE career and have been caught more than once for steroid use the UFC doesn't really see a point in signing you

The biggest thing with Josh is he wants to be signed for more than a one off match with say couture or Fedor, he wants probably 6 fights and a steep payout that Zuffa isn't sure he deserves, or that is my thinking on the matter. I hope he comes over b/c he is a great wrestler, anyone that can roll around with Big Nog for 20 minutes is doing something right. and the quote Dana used was "Why do I want Barnett I have Mirko Cro Cop the guy that kicked his ass three times." Bet he is eating crow for saying that now.

Maybe so, but I still think I would rather have a overamped once great kickboxer than a fat steroid head

change overamped to overpaid or are they the same thing? Also, don't forget he isn't answering UFC's calls and is probably thinking of retiring.

Whenelse other than the UFC has Barnett been caught using roids? And don't give me that all Pride fighters are roid head crap.

toddums: half of the reasons you use could be applied to just about any fighter, say Rampage, Lidell, Sylvia.

JB may have been busted for roid usage or whatever, but look at all the UFC fighters that are failing tests, its gonna get worse before it gets better just like any pro sports (IE: baseball,starting to clear up again but guys are still using)

Those are reasons TO sign the guy. They're going to need some competition for 'Captain America' before Ivan Drago is ready.

A. True, he did take roids when he fought Randy and he paid for it! But this was ages ago and probably isn't roiding up anymore. Things like this can be forgivin.

B. Its also true he talks a lot of sh*t but thier are fighters in the UFC that talks an equal amount of smack. You just gotta hope they get thier asses kicked so they will shut up.

C. I was pissed on this part to when he said Randy was a paper champion. Knowing the circumstances of why Josh was stripped I think a good majority of people knows not to take what he said seriously.

D. As for the last part that really isn't a good excuse for keeping one of the top ten heavyweights out of the UFC.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
