Josh Barnett

Postby Gurre » Sat Jul 16, 2005 7:03 am

Josh "the babyfaced assassin" Barnett is yet another wrestler at the very top of the MMA mountain.

He weighs in at 250lbs (113kg) and is 6'3 (190cm) tall.

He started his career in the UFC, but after a steriod ban moved to japan and Pancrase. He's made one apperance in Pride, losing (by injury) to Mirko CroCop.

Josh is a big man who overpowers his opponants and wears them down with his methodical GnP.

His all time pro MMA record is 15 - 2 - 0 (Win - Loss - Draw)

So is he still fighting in Pride ? I remember his old UFC fights, he seemed to have potential...

Nogueira...

This may sound stupid, but is it Rodrigo or Regerio?

Yes, they are. I have not checked and did not know if Babyface cut wait or not. It does not matter which of the two he fights, because they are both great. But one things for sure he better be ready.

Yeah, I know that now, but did not before. I am getting behind seeing as it's the end of the Summer semester and I have tests flying at me left and right.

can Barnett beat nog? as i remember his grappling was better than his striking and he aint good enough to beat him on the floor

this is going to be a long and boring fight wich will go to decision. Barnett will not get submitted because i feel like his wrestling skills are too good. Nog wont get submitted because his BJJ skills are too good and niether of em is gonna get knocked out because Nog doesnt strike that hard and Nog has the hardest chin in the game.

Barnett is a very good and well rounded fighter. I think he can win the decision over Nog but Rodrigo is still the favorite.
Barrnet is a poor version of Fedor.

barnetts best years were wasted due to illegal substance being found on a blood test, however i think the UFC should get him back to put more life in the HW div

i believe Barnetts best years are ahead of him and i think that he only recently figured out what fighting in MMA is all about. Hes good at executing his gameplan and always keeping his apponents out of their rhythem. The way he beat Hunt demonstrated his execution of gameplan, they didnt even trade shots, Hunt was completly taken out of his element. As much as I hate his loud mouth and cocky ways, i give him credit for fighting a smart fight as he did against baby fedor and mark hunt. I hope he wins the OWGP so that he can fight Fedor and his fuckin ass beat.

we have to have loud mouths and cockyness in sports its where we get characters from. I would rather see barnett fight fedor than another match against nog
