    Nope I say they signed him and he'll be fighting real soon. Too bad it's not against Frank Mir, but after DC beats Mir who knows, maybe then? Ooooh how about Werdum? That could be very interesting, catch wrestling vs Ju Jitsu = AWESOME!

    I agree. There's been a lot of times where it looks like the UFC is putting out rumors about fights or deals and then monitoring the internet for response. I'm guessing Barnett is still a long way off from paperwork, if ever.

    I couldnt see the UFC giving him JDS and risking have Barnett beat their ex champ. Too much to risk banking on Barnett to piss clean on his first fight back to the UFC, plus Dana hates him.

    Name only?



    Why should Barnett be given the last UFC champ, arguably the #2 HW right now, when Barnett hasnt had a WIN over a top ten in YEARS??

    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.


    The UFC might want to give JDS a fight or two before a rematch with Cain. A big name win that wouldn't muddy things up too bad should he lose (Barnett) would bode well in selling a 3rd fight between Cain and JDS, seeing as how JDS holds convincing wins over quite a few of the top 10 already in the UFC, thus my reasoning for my suggestion.

    "Deserve" means nothing in the UFC presently.
