    I freakin' hope so. The more people from SF that are brought over, the better IMO. We get tons of crazy match-ups, and the fans win.

    Josh Barnett VS Any UFC HW is good to me.

    Argh! He should be fighting frank Mir, I don't know why DC has a bug up his ass about fighting Mir. Let DC fight Mark Hunt or Gonzaga, give us Mir vs Barnett and make it the next season of TUF. Do I need to come over their and do your job for you Dana?

    Who is not matched up currently with anyone? If this is true Roy Nelson would be a good first fight for Barnett. I also agree with Joe. Have Frank and Josh fight. That would be a spectacular comain on a pay or main event on a free show.

    This. Dana would pray for the simultaneous double KO.

    I do not think Nelson is a good first fight for Barnett because Barnett is probably only a win or two from a title shot and Nelson is no where close. As much as I have been a detractor of Barnett and called him the most overrated fighter in MMA I can not deny the fact the guy is good, even great. I say a fight with JDS would be a good spot for him.

    Im sorry but HOW on earth is Barnett one fight away from a title shot? He just got throughly tooled by DC then fought a complete no name, again HOW is he even close to a UFC title shot lol??

    Name only?

    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.
