Barnette vs Overeem without a cup in site? Those two will show up with physique's that would make Lesnar/Carwin look like a girl scouts meet and greet.
Barnett seems to have a shitty roid dealer, as he's still a flabby mess.

Overeem needs to hook him up with his horse meat dealer.

I'd like to see that matchup, too, personally. But the reality is, Tim needs to get some confidence back before he steps in with someone who's a legit gamer. Despite the steroid use, Barnett's a legit gamer.

The problem with Dream right now is that they don't really have any legit heavyweights for Barnett to fight. Their heavyweight title is vacant and their "superhulk" champion is a middleweight who, lets face it, would be horribly murdered by Barnett if the two ever fought.

All of the good fighters who'd be a test for Barnett who might have ended up in Dream are currently on the Strikeforce brand. Arlovski, Overeem, Werdum and Antonio Silva all make for interesting fights with Barnett, but the chances that he's going to fight any of them in the near future seem pretty slim.

Honestly if you take all the people you mentioned out of the equation the fight I would most like to see is a rematch with Jeff Monson. There first fight was fairly close (I'd give Monson the first and Barnett the second and third.). There is Sergei Kharintov in Dream though which could be a decent fight.

Great call on Sergei. I would definitely be down for Barnett/Sergei. They also need to get Aleks off his lazy ass and into Dream for a rematch with Josh or for a fight with Big Timmeh

Sergei, I think, can still be something. He looked awful against Monson, no doubt, but he can learn from that (Like, get better wrestling and a better ground game).

He got his ass kicked in his K-1 fight, but he took on a stud, and still made it far.

If he fought Barnett right now, though, he'd get subbed.

Sergei should look into Overeem's "horse meat" diet.

Very nice sum up on the situation! + Rep, and i wonder if that whole not showing up for his steroid thing, or teh steroid thing in general had anything to do with going to Dream instead of SF, where someone of his caliber would make more sense....

I mean to win non taxed prize money is awesome and no REAL competition is nice, but the dude honestly thought he was going to beat Fedor that night, and it seemed like to me he wanted to prove himself...

So thats the only reason im thinking he went to Dream for some other reason then Money and basically unchallenged wins...

Sergei got submitted by one of the best grapplers in the entire HW division, cut him some slack.

True, but he was really competitive against the best HW grappler in 2004.

He needs the red undies again. He offered nothing on the ground against Monson. I was disappointed.
