Probably not being allowed to do pro-wrestling... UFC want a full commitment from their fighters, which Barnett has said countless times that he's not willing to do.

Bah. Was hoping this would work out. People who think Barnett adds nothing to UFC HW are mistaken. He'd be a great addition. Oh, well... this doesn't mean they can't or won't work out these 'issues'.

Or he probably couldn't do wrestling in Japan. One of the reasons Fedor didn't want to come to the UFC was that he wouldn't be able to do Sambo. UFC was afraid he could get hurt and wouldn't be 100% in their fights. Of course the UFC was going to concede if it meant signing Fedor. Nobody got that kind of deal and I doubt Dana wants Josh Barnett as much as he wanted Fedor.

He still has so much to give i don't see why he won't sign with them, he can put pro wrestling aside for a couple years, plus it would make him a better fresher fighter since he wont have to deal with the pain of pro wrestling

Also keep in mind Dana and Josh never had the best working relationship. Hell, I;m surprised Dana even made an offer to Josh considering he flat out said he had no respect for him (says it at 3:18).


Josh made it abundantly clear he really dislikes Dana and his business practices.

Considering their history I wouldn't be surprised if Josh was using pro wrestling (or whatever that one thing is) as crutch so he doesn't have to go back working under Dana White. Josh rather be his competition.

Shame. There were some fights I really wanted to see. Barnett vs Nelson or Mir would have been great fights.

I doubt he's going to Bellator. The head of Bellator had an interview where he said he wanted nothing to do with Barnett.

Dude's a lone wolf. Solid fighter, but he just does things his own way. If it's about merchandising or rights to his nickname(s) that's gotta be pretty innocuous.

Fun fact: Did you know Mirko beat him three times then asked em to train with em...lolz!
