    Barnett: Some fans are forgiving, some are total MMAholes
    Karyn Bryant caught up with UFC Heavyweight Josh Barnett at the CSW gym in Fullerton, CA, ahead of his fight with Travis Browne.

    "The War Master discussed fight fans, pre-fight WADA testing, fighters he coaches, whether he’d play Santa Claus, and of course Saturday's fight on free TV.

    "It's nice to be back and fighting in the same arena that I won the title in back in 2002," said Barnett, as transcribed by MMA Fighting. Vegas is a great fight city and it's very easy for all my friends and family to be able to come out and make it to the fight. Sure, it's stressful when new things pop onto your lap (Extra PED testing Barnett is required to take by the NSACC) and you have to deal with this, and deal with this, and deal with this. But, everybody was professional and went through actually better than one can expect."

    Barnett also addressed whether fans have forgiven him for the past PED test failures.

    "I don't consider MMA fans any different from any other fans," he said. "I think fans in general, in this day and age, there are plenty that are forgiving, I imagine. Then there are plenty that are total a--holes and all they want to do is sit back from a high chair and try to make themselves feel better in some way by trying to knock somebody else down.

    "That goes for fans of anybody in entertainment, MMA, basketball, football; all of that is considered entertainment. It's a real melting pot and everything is included and you have to deal with all of it. But, as long as those guys and gals want to spread negativity and throw out the old ether, if they're spelling my name right, they are continuing to propagate me and what I do. They clearly have interest even if it's for a negative reason."

    They can decide whether to grant a license or not and in doing so put conditions on giving one out. That's how they were able to catch Overeem.

    Hopefully they make use of the surprise tests and keep Barnett honest. He really should be subject to random testing for the remainder of his career at this point.

    Knowing how dumb an excuse it really is, I sometimes do actually wonder how many dirty substances were out there in the late 90's and early 2000's. Zero regulation and research into their ingredients certainly left incentive there for it to happen. I have no history of baldness in my family and had little to no acne but, when using AndroStack 850 and a few tribulus stacks developed both.
    I had to cut down to just using ZMA and Tribulus. Bacne no more. Moody no more... but that has to do with other circumstances.

    Anyways, good for him. He was not someone I would have expected to do this.

    Yea, because the horribly low PPV buyrate and the massive amount of salaries paid out in the first 2 events, followed by reports of low ticket sales and a projected low PPV rate and massive salaries being paid out again in the 3rd event had nothing to do with the guys over at Affliction using Barnett as a scapegoat to save face for a failed bid into the MMA world :-/

    IMO, as SJ has just said the guy is deserving of this kinda treatment, but I think the reason why the AC is coming down hard on him (and I think they did same with Overeem) is because how much his name has been thrown around for failed tests due to steroid use. DW constantly trashed the guy about being a juicer and let's face it, anything DW says makes headlines. There are other repeat offenders who should also be subjected to these tests (Leben, Bonnar, Belfort, just to name a few) who arent heavily scrutinized, mainly cause their names arent always thrown under the bus the way Barnett's has.
