Honestly Josh is a great measuring stick and if a fighter can beat him, that solidifies that fighters legitimacy.
I agree with everything besides the Bold. To call him "easily" top ten when he hasnt had a top ten win in nearly..what 6 years? Is a bit far fetched imo.
"Could" he beat alot of UFC HWs? Im sure of it, but rankings dont go by what "could" happen, they go by actual accomplishments, And TBH Barnett doesnt have alot of good accomplishments recently...Chaulk it up to whatever you want but Barnetts best win in recent history is Brett Rogers..maybe Sergei. I dont think that automatically puts him above guys like Nelson/Struve/and Bigfoot(who imo are rounding out the bottom top 10 in the UFC)
Agree with everything else though.
On Topic: Id love to see Barnett in the UFC, fighting top ten guys regularly and testing clean while doing it. Theres lots of good matchups with him and hes got solid skills.
Barnett/Nelson is a fights id like to see right now.
For some reason I dont see it happening though.
