i'll be dwelling on all those matchups all day. at that time, who could have beaten him? i'd pick him over randy, sylvia, mir at the time (and possibly now), and most any other contender. arlovski at his best could have given barnett problems, but now it would be a squash match.
i hope he changes his mind and comes back for a half dozen fights. nothing would make me happier than seeing him beat up cheick kongo.
