Quote of the Day 2: Josh Barnett: "I Like the Idea That I Could Be Out There Killing Someone's Hero"

"I don't feel a need to cater to people for any reason whatsoever. I treat those that are my fans respectfully and try to to what I can for them as an athlete. But I don't things for other people. I do them for myself. To do them for any other reason is insincere and a counterproductive way of going about things.

"I don't owe anyone anything, and they don't owe anything to me. Those that are my fans, I'll do what I can for them. But at the end of the day, my job is to go out there and [expletive] people up. That's my goal. There are going to be people who dig that. There are going to be people that hate it, and that just makes me even happier.

"I don't really think about haters and encouragement. I'm a guy that likes conflict and causing grief. So if I feel like I'm making somebody's life miserable sometimes, for what I feel is arbitrary and ridiculous reasons, then I kind of feel a need to make it even worse for them. I can't help it. It's how I am. Basically, I like the idea that I could be out there killing someone's hero."
