I didn't know Barnett was such a beast in his younger years.

    According to wiki he took the UFC HW belt by storm, losing only to Pedro Rizzo due to (obviously) inexperience and being very green. Mind you, Barnett later avenged that loss by brutal KO which was added to his highlight reel.




    Warmaster should take back his belt.

    If he won it and pissed hot, it was never really "his" belt.

    Really excited to have him back in the UFC though, can't wait for his next fight.

    That punch that Rizzo landed on Josh.....holy shit! It's still in my top 3 of most brutal KO's in the UFC.

    Josh is a boss, though. He's a legit threat to Cain. People will learn....

    "Barnett tested positive for banned substances and was given a warning by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.[4] Barnett was then given a title shot"

    Times sure were different back then.

    He's always been a beast. I've always loved the way he fights.

    It's too bad we can't see some of the most dangerous HW's from the past, like Rizzo, Rodriguez and Arlovski, in their prime against the top HW's today. At least we can with Barnett since he's about the only one who's stayed consistently on top of his game up until now.

    I'm a big Warmaster fan, but if you see how he was tooled by Cormier you know de belt is out of reach. I don't see him beating DC or Cain, the rest he can beat though. JDS of course being tricky but his style might suit Barnett.

    I've always loved watching Barnett fight. Shame the Fedor fight never happened.

    The UFC suspended him for 9 months. The commission just gave the warning, but the UFC shelved him. They also aren't giving him a title shot.
