    Last I heard Bellator wasn't really interested in him. Be kind of a waste for him to go to there no real legit name fights for him.

    On Barnett's run if he stayed UFC 3 hots would of made for a few breaks in it.
    I would have to say contract restriction are probely the hold out factor.

    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.

The line about Barnett being his own man is buttering him up, while at the same time being a bit of reverse-psychology.
    from what i have gathered, josh and his guys were happy with the money and made no counter offer. they didnt say excactly what it was that they werent happy with but it wasnt the money. if i had to guess its probably something to do with josh wanting to do pro wrestling or race cars or something along those lines that the ufc doesnt want him to do, pure speculation on my part though.

    that's saying a hell of a lot for the HW division. It's not a division known for stable champions. But Barnett is one of those guys that finds a way to win, even if it's ugly as fuck. I'm still holding out hope for Barnett/Mir that's a money maker right there. Definitely a season of TUF.

    I mean, imagine if Josh Barnett had stayed in the UFC his whole career, what he could have accomplished? The money he could have made, and all the things that could have happened.
