    the fact that barnett has a twitter page results in -10 respect points

    wtf is wrong with the men in this world and these silly children web sites.

    please tell me fedor doesn't have a fag myspace account or twitter or whatever.

    i don't even know what twitter really is, i assume it's like the myspace and facebook and shit (i don't even have accounts with those either, my wife does and I :ugh: every time i see her get on that silly shit)

    if someone has real life friends is there a need to post what your mood is on some internet site lol

    apman0000 is feeling angry today..... lol i'm sorry i guess i just don't get that shit, nevermind i'm too much of a redneck to get into that shit :)

    Really? I mean cmon why wouldn't he have a twitter if it keeps people interested in him and what he does. Obviously someone cared enough to quote his twitter so why does it matter?

    Either way happy josh got his BJJ BB as I have seen him roll before and he definitely deserves it.

    On another note there is a lot of people in the lobby in that picture above. He must have been promoted at the Gyms christmas party they have every year. Believe me they do know how to party, but Babalu was a dick last year basically wanting to be left alone the whole damn time lol.

    yeah, i know he doesn't really train with the gi, but he just won no-gi worlds recently which is impressive

    it is impressive yes, but usually people who get promoted in bjj get promoted because of their accomplishments with the gi on. Now... he did do well with the gi on too BUT he faced opponents who were VASTLY lighter than him...

    I mean Erik Paulson is legit but this whole skip to black belt thing seems fishy. There are other pro fighters, like Diego Sanchez who started all over at white belt (this is AFTER he defeated pablo povovitch in no gi btw), and now still isn't at black belt.

    yeah agree with brolli.. mixed feelings. i dont think you should be promoted that way. there should be a progression. it's like a top collegiate wrestler starting judo.. they wouldnt just hand him a black belt

    granted a top collegiate wrestler would do very well in judo, but that doesnt mean hes automatically a judo black belt. you have to at least put some time in.

    either way, competitively barnett is def on that level

    So you're bashing something that you really don't know about? That makes sense.
