JOSH BARNETT VS. FIGHTING
"Just overheard, "How many fights did you have today?". The answer is none. You've had zero fights today. Doing BJJ is NOT a fight." -Josh Barnett
"Boxing is a fight. 1/3 of a fight maybe but still a fight. To me for something to be called a fight it must involve striking your opponent." -Josh Barnett
HEY JOSH, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO THE UFC?
""When are you going to the UFC?"; "Are you in the UFC now?"; "UFC?"; "UFC!""
"This is something I've had even random people ask me on the street while just out and about living a normal life. It’s the one question I have been asked repeatedly in every interview over the last year and the question fans have asked most."
"No, I am not in the UFC yet, but I would love to be in the UFC fighting in the Octagon again being back on the mats where I won the heavyweight title 11 years ago. It’s the biggest promotion, with the most exposure, and the best heavyweight division. Plus it’s abundantly clear - It’s where you guys want to see me fighting."
