    IDC if this gets moved, both these guys are first ballot HoFers and deserve top billing

    They missed their date in Affliction 10 years ago. It's time now. Barnett/Fedor. Both past their prime, both need a win.

    Honestly, I have no desire to see Fedor fight again. And I’m not sure whether anybody that says they do is a fan, or a hater???

    why not? he got knocked out by a legitimate top 5 fighter.

    He looked good against Mir and Chael. He can definitely fight still, assuming It's against the right opponent.

    Barnett would be perfect.

    Barnett has been fighting since Bill Clinton had just been re-elected. DS9 was still running. 9/11 was still 4 years away.

    You can't say this wouldn't be an even match up

    His chin is absolutely gone

    Fedor fans are the most fickle in MMA.

    Josh and Fedor are the same age and have had roughly the same amount of fights

    Who the hell cares at this point. Both guys are wayyy past their prime, and Barnett is the biggest steroid cheat in MMA history. His name should be scrubbed from every discussion about top HW fighters.

    Totally agree. Fedor is finished. He has no draw power now and Barnett would murder him.

    Barnett has been caught 5 times now if I'm counting right.

    Those 2 should be a fair fight. Josh is no spring chicken. At this point fedor will ko or be ko'd within 1. I was hyped for this potential matchup when it was a real fight that was scrapped forever ago.

    I'd expect it to look like the second Rizzo fight for Josh, except within the first minute

    I cant see this being worse thin Mir/Fedor but Fedor fans act like this is a slaughter

    It's not time for Fedor to fight anyone anymore. He's so far past his prime I wouldn't favor him over nearly anyone right now. Barnett is also past his prime, sure, but he has way more left in the tank than Fedor, imo.

    That's an opinion.

    Barnett has been off for a long time

    Of course it is. That's what "imo" means.
