I'm not talking about cutting from where he is at right now. He is only like 5'10" he is carrying a lot of extra weight he could diet off to be at a reasonable weight to cut to 205.

His kidneys are shot from cutting for wrestling.

He has said he would do it but only if he needed too. Since he has had success at hw I don't see why he would move down, its like Fedor back in the day. Its actually easier to fight at hw then move to lhw where the fighters are better rounded.

yea he tried to cut and had his kidneys fail or something, if he diets he might be able to get down. but some guys just carry a lot of weight and it might be extremely hard for him to do that considering hes having success right now at hw.



JUST SCRAP

Man, the former "Baby Faced Asassin" is a strong top control finisher. I wonder how he reacts to being on the back.

Can you believe Crocop beat em before...where is that old warrior.

Thought it was going to be Barnett vs Overeem or Fedor way back.

Barnett has been getting a lot of favorable opponents. He gets to take them down ASAP, mount and then submit. It actually bores me watching him do it.

I want to see how he deals with Comier or a good BJJ guy for a change.

Yea, gotta agree with you. Barnett has not been tested yet by a good wrestler/BJJ fighter. He's had two strikers in there without a ground game.

Well that's in the current Grand Prix. He is battle tested in other occasions. Then again that is a while ago so we should recheck.
