Im sorry but HOW on earth is Barnett one fight away from a title shot?
He just got throughly tooled by DC then fought a complete no name, again HOW is he even close to a UFC title shot lol??

People see the name "Josh Barnett
" and automatically think he should be fighting the top 3 HWs in the world? I dont.
I say start him off with guys like Mitrione/Kongo/Barry/ MAYBE Nelson.
But for him to just leapfrog the entire division and get a title shot or a crack at the #2-#3 guy "Just because" makes absolutly no sense.
Barnett needs to EARN his spot, not have it given to him. Hes not
the SF champ, never was
, and hes not
coming over with a huge list of awsome victories. Lets be honest here people.
Hes got a name, and a good skillset yes. But he doesnt deserve
a fight aginst Cain or JDS, At the moment
Now thats all said, I hope this is true.
