I approve.
Soojooko approves of meat. You all saw it!

Anyway, I'm hoping Barnett will come over/be brought over. He's legit.

Joking aside its a decent list that I am just surprised OSP, Masdival and Fejao didn't make but Calvacante likely will get signed once he is cleared to fight.
I was just thinking it would be fun to watch Brian kick his ass... I could be wrong, but wouldn't it be Army Vs. Marine?

Other than, totally feeling their solid pics... and I agree with everyone else, the HW division needs Barnett.

Just saw John's quote... I REALLY want Chris Leben Vs. Robbie Lawler... I have for years. Having said that, Chris looked like shit his last time out and Robbie could probably start a little higher, but I think it would be fun.

You guys were annoyed that they had too many cards before?

Can't wait to see how this moves the UFC forward. Hopefully One FC or SFL takes off with Strikeforce gone. Bellator is still there, but it'd be cool to have another one pop up now to reaplace the one which has fallen.

That's not really the situation. Sure Josh isn't jumping through hoops like most fighters to kiss Zuffa ass. He likes to do the pro wrestling thing and not be tied down.
But Dana White does not like him. For legit reasons. Josh Barnett has been busted multiple times and in crucial moments. He tested positive as the UFC Champion and was stripped of the title. He also tested positive right before one of the biggest MMA fights ever in what would have been #1 vs #2 according to many rankings. Because of him an entire organization when under when he screwed up the main event.
Is that really someone you want to rely on to headline your cards? In his biggest moments, he has been caught cheating.

To be fair, Lawler looked pretty bad in his last fight and in the Tim Kennedy fight. Leben was atleast coming off a year long suspension, Lawler just stood there and did nothing against Larkin.

Yeah but Larkin would blast Leben all day long. I think Robbie and Leben are pretty equal right now.

It's not wrong what you've written, but an organization should never be dependend on what a single fighter does or does not.
