Dana White says Josh Barnett is 'probably' coming to the Octagon

Dana White says Josh Barnett is 'probably' coming to the Octagon

By Nate Wilcox on Jan 23, 3:52p 3


UFC president Dana White has not spoken with former Strikeforce Heavyweight Josh Barnett but he tells Mike Bohn that Barnett is "probably" headed for the UFC.


Former UFC Heavyweight champion Josh Barnett is the most high-profile "ronin" coming out of Strikeforce. He was not one of the 20-something fighters that was announced as heading to the UFC from the now defunct organization and many speculated that his high asking price (he made $250,000 for his final SF bout) and his infamous troubles with performance enhancing drugs and getting along with Zuffa made him an unlikely candidate for a return to the UFC.

That may have been premature.

Quote:
MMA Mania's Mike Bohn spoke to White at today's media scrum and Dana said, "I have not (spoken with Barnett). It's probably going to happen."
Exciting news for fans of the baby-faced assassin who has not fought in the UFC since defeating Randy Couture back in 2002. Barnett never fought for a title in his Pride tenure but he was consistently near the top of the division and he finished second in the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix in 2012.

Good, Barnett is a top Heavyweight and all the intriguing fights for him are in the UFC.

He needs to come to the UFC. He would be an outstanding addition.

We might see Barnett - Mir. A fight that could have happened 10 years ago.

...Ironically so is Cormier. I wonder if they will meet again? No matter--adding Barnett the the UFC HW roster is certainly a great addition provided his pisses clean. ( Maybe Josh & Alistair can both juice up and meet in the octagon)lol! Funny at that they may end up fighting each other since they never met in Strikeforce...

Geez I don't know what it is about today but everything coming out of Dana's mouth is so vague and noncommittal and loaded with subtext.

Dan Henderson is the top contender over Daniel Cormier.
Demetrius Johnson should be in the p4p discussion.
If Johny Hendricks wins impressively he'll get a title shot.

How is Barnett going to slide over Roy's stomach to lock in an arm triangle?
