Josh Barnett Compares the Strikeforce and UFC Heavyweight Divisions

"The Strikeforce heavyweight division is really phenomenal right now. I guess one way to look at it would be look at me, Fedor, Alistair, Bigfoot, Arlovski, and Werdum, and look at our records and stack them up. If you count all the wins that we have under our belts that far surpasses the top five guys in the UFC's amount of fights even."

"Granted, just because you don't have a lot of fights that doesn't mean you're not a great fighter, but I definitely think we've got a big edge with that kind of veteran, international talent."

"I’m going to bring the same kind of ferocity and relentless, merciless kind of fighting in the ring. No one's going to be disappointed in my entry."
