Barnett was 265 so him being 243 is a great sign, he wants to completely transform his body in 1 year and be ripped (that way he can take much more body punishment and be quicker as he will be lighter). That along with his phenomenal technique is going to make for a dangerous opponent for anyone including Fedor as wrestlers have all done well against Fedor (even if only for a few moments) plus all of the wrestlers fedor has faced, Herring, Fujit, Randleman and Coleman Barnett is by far the most well rounded and most skilled.
Barnett will become HW champion (non title fight) within 2 years, Fedor or no Fedor, it won't make a difference. That is my prediction as long as Barnett continues with his workout regimine.
