They don't have room for Josh. Not after signing the future king of the HW Division.

Signing Barnett is tantamount to the UFC saying we support our athletes taking steroids. As was discussed in the recent thread about Dana knowing or not knowing about steroid use in UFC fighters - which oddly turned into a discussion as to whether Dana has used roids - this is like putting out a sign that says use, just don't get caught.

I feel that the UFC/Dana are well aware of steroid issues and they choose to ignore them. Given that is thread in itself I hope UFC does not sign Barnett.

Dana cares about revenue. If drugs get in the way of revenue, he has a problem with it. If they don't, he doesn't. It's why after Sonnen blamed everyone but himself when he hid his self medication of testosterone and got suspended, White was all like, "Chale Sonnen, god bless him, he just made a innocent mistake" because the money was made. Where if a fighter gets caught before a fight thus canceling the main or co-main.... Big ******* problem.

This applies to basically all sports promotions.

I would love to see Barnett in the UFC, I don't understand why he isn't. He is top level talent man, there's also Sergei Kharitonov...I never understood why the UFC didn't try to sign him. The HW division is decent right now, but the division could be so much better if they just signed a couple people. Cole Konrad is another guy that comes to mind, apparently he retired, but he was Bellator's unbeaten HW champ, NCAA division 1 wrestling champ...seems like he was just doing it for the money I guess, still a shame to see him go he was 9-0
