    I would also love to see Josh come to the UFC... im still pretty biased against him. I think i still got a grudge after he pissed hot for the Fedor fight it was a fight i really wanted to see and i screwed a lot of stuff up.

    But i dont hate the guy hes a great talent and one of the best in the world so id love to see him compete who knows maybe ill start to come around on him but id still love to see him in the UFC

    I hope the UFC picks up Barnett again. I know he is an unpopular guy around some of these forums but I find him very entertaining to watch.

    Josh Barnett meets Nandor Guelmino at Strikeforce in January - MMA Fighting

    The relatively-unknown Guelmino (11-3), nicknamed "The Hun," will be making his Strikeforce debut. Guelmino, born in Vienna, Austria, has won his last seven fights in a row.

    At least we can finally get these out of the way and hopefully see Cormier and Barnett in the UFC.

    Josh Barnett Slated for Final Strikeforce Bout on Champions Fight Card in January

    Josh Barnett Slated for Final Strikeforce Bout on Champions Fight Card in January
    Posted on November 29, 2012 by MMAWeekly.com Staff


    Former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett finally has a date and opponent for his final fight under the Strikeforce banner.

    Barnett will square off with promotional newcomer Nandor Guelmino at Strikeforce: Champions on Jan. 12 in Oklahoma City, Okla. The event is also expected to be Strikeforce’s swan song, with most of its fighters gobbled up by the UFC.

    Barnett (31-6) had been on eight-fight winning streak prior to his last bout, a losing effort in the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix finals to Daniel Cormier.

    Barnett broke his hand in that fight and has been sidelined ever since, while Strikeforce has cancelled two events during that same timespan.

    It’s unclear what Barnett’s future holds beyond the January event. He has had a rocky past with UFC officials and has been rumored to be considering returning to Japan in 2013 to fight again for Pancrase, where he was the last man to hold the promotion’s open weight championship.

    Guelmino is a little known Austrian heavyweight with an 11-3-1 professional record. The fight against Barnett marks his first bout in America.

    After injuries ravaged the top end of Strikeforce: Champions, the main event now features Strikeforce welterweight champion Nate Marquardt putting his belt on the line against Tarec Saffiedine.

    MMAWeekly.com’s independent sources confirmed the Barnett vs. Guelmino bout, which was first reported by MMAJunkie.com.
